Supported girls and women in distress.

Eksaath Foundation does a lot of campaigns for raising funds for various programs and also consumables. Few months ago we received a large donation of girls and womens clothing, some 116 pieces which included  tops, dresses, frocks, track pants, skirts and these were in very good condition. We can’t thank the donors enough.

This clothing was then sorted and catalogued. Our goal was to find the right recipients for them. It took us a long time to find girls who could really use them. And till we did, we held on to the clothing – for weeks. But we were able to find homes and shelters, where girls who came from distressed backgrounds lived, were studying, and trying to do better.

All the clothing we collected went to homes that housed some 153 girls – from young kids to young college going girls and women. Could we help all? Probably not. But we would like to. We would like to do lots more.

Eksaath Foundations goal is to help girls and women deal with emotional violence. These need not be from absolute state of poverty and violence, but sometimes from regular home leading distressful and emotionally traumatic lives. Campaign for clothing is just one way to support them.

Donated clothing to a shelter for street girls

Eksaath Foundation donated clothing to a shelter for street girls. The shelter co-ordinator Tabassum, sorted  through the clothes. What was usable and what wasn’t and she was happy with the donated lot. She took all the clothes.

As we donate clothing to girls at shelters, schools and to organisations that support girls and women, we learn more and more about how courageous they are, and how much more work has to be done.

Charity Fund Raising Work Out by Bodyworks

Last few weeks have been very special for Eksaath Foundation. To help women deal with violence, we are creating self defense programs for girls at school and colleges. And our first program will start in November. All thanks to Venu Adhiya Hirani who owns Bodyworks, a weight management and fitness centre at Juhu.

Every year Bodyworks organises a Sweat Out for Charity program, a gruelling two hour fitness bootcamp to raise funds for social projects. This time around, Venu and Bodyworks, decided to support the self defense training program being organised by Eksaath. The camp has raised Rs 26,500 which will help start this program. This also includes a contribution of Rs 10,000 from Ms Deepa Panchal, a Bodyworks Member.

Eksaath wishes to thank Venu and Deepa, for supporting this initiative which will teach girls tactics on how to defend oneself in the event of an assault or invasion of personal space. A very special thank you to Ms Poonam Wadera who connected all the dots and bought Eksaath Foundation and Bodyworks together and made it happen.
