Food is the most basic requirement for all of us. Getting a square meal should not be a reason for distress for any individual. There are thousands of families for whom getting food and 3 meals a day is a luxury. In recent years, the issue of hunger and food insecurity has become increasingly prevalent, with a significant portion of our population struggling to access nutritious meals. One of the key factors exacerbating this crisis is the reduction in food subsidies, primarily as a result of the Budget for the year 2023-2024. This has led to a decrease in the amount of food provided through ration cards, making it even harder for the underprivileged to afford essential food items.
Nalpada is a community tucked inside Vaishali Nagar, Thane. The community is home to 100-plus families who struggle everyday to make ends meet. With the ever-increasing cost of living, many are forced to choose between basic necessities, such as food and shelter, which is a choice that no one should ever have to make. Hunger, particularly among vulnerable populations, has become an alarming issue, affecting physical and mental health, education, and overall well-being. I decided to come up with an initiative to provide ration kits to underprivileged families in Nalpada, Vaishali Nagar in Thane.
The above picture shows the living conditions of the underprivileged people in Vaishali Nagar, Thane.
The residents of Nalpada, Vaishali Nagar grapple with economic hardships, food insecurity, and educational challenges due to reduced food subsidies. Many face the distressing decision of choosing between basic needs, impacting their health, education, and overall well-being. This campaign is a vital response to these struggles, aiming to provide immediate relief, restore dignity, and foster a more secure future for this resilient community.
My family and I have taken the initiative to provide a basic ration kit for a year-long mission. The kit contains items such as Rice, Sugar, Oil, and Flour. Each of these kits, packed with care and compassion, costs just INR 550.
This campaign aims to alleviate the food insecurity faced by underprivileged people in Vaishali Nagar and ensure that they have access to these staple items throughout the year. We believe that pooling our resources and goodwill can make a significant difference in the lives of those who need it the most. Together, we can brighten the path for a more nourished and hopeful community.
If you fund INR 550, you support one family,
If you fund INR 2750, you support five families,
If you fund INR 5550, you support ten families.
My name is ARYAN KUMBHAT. I am 17-years-old and a Grade 12 student at the Smt. Sulochanadevi Singhania, School, Thane.
I have undertaken this campaign because I was surprised to learn that many families in Nalapada, Vaishali Nagar in Thane are struggling due to the reduction in food subsidies which has directly impacted their day-to-day lives. The collective stress of food scarcity and financial hardship has impacted the community's mental and emotional well-being
So, I decided to embark on a year-long mission to distribute ration kits containing crucial items such as Rice, Sugar, Oil, and Flour. Each of these kits, packed with care and compassion, is priced at just INR 550.
Please support my campaign and let us together impact the alleviating hardships and creating a brighter, more secure future for all underprivileged families of Vaishali Nagar. This ration kit will restore dignity, reduce stress, and provide a helping hand to those who are facing hunger on a daily basis.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept and is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations and ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also make a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation and you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank-you email from the beneficiaries.
