I am passionate about

Actions

Under the NGO I founded in 2004, following are the three main programs I initiatied with the support of my team. Lakshyam Toy Library is one of the main programs of Lakshyam that distributes toys and books from the privileged children to the not-so-privileged ones all over India. Toy Boxes are set up in several private schools in Delhi and each child donates a toy and/or book that is then delivered to the 10 tie-up NGOs across 11 states. Lakshyam Toy Library Centers have been opened in the rural districts of states like Delhi, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand and over 2,00,000 toys, books and stationary have been distributed till now. Butterfly: Child Welfare and Education program has been designed, keeping in view the two integral building blocks of a healthy child, Development & Participation. The Remedial Education Center based at the ghetto (Basti) adopted by Lakshyam, JJ Basti in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi, provides an education encompassing textual knowledge and personality development, along with special attention to workshops on cleanliness, hygiene, discipline, extra curricular activities and positive life habits that are carried out to help the children join the mainstream society with a broader and deeper capability. Rooh: Awakening Women's Soul is a program that focuses on creating an environment conducive for women from the not-so-privileged communities. Imparting skill building training and teaching the art of sewing, cutting, stitching and embroidery to women, thus creating opportunities for income enhancement. Focus on issues affecting the lives of women, like health & hygiene education, child care and basic civic sense are provide to community women to support them in leading a life with dignity and confidence.
