My name is Aryan Tomar and I am a Grade 8 student at Pathways School, Noida.
I have undertaken this campaign because I think having a full meal a day is something that is a basic need for anyone. I can never imagine not being able to get food as and when I want it. I was surprised to learn that there are so many young children who do not know when their next meal will be made available to them.
RESPONSENET an NGO based in Delhi (also known as DELHI FOODBANK) has started an initiative to give lunch to children who are mostly off the streets and migrants, lacking access to any formal education in the NCR region. This program helps bridge the learning gap and link them to regular schools. It takes only INR 15 to feed one wholesome meal to a child. These children who are being supported by RESPONSENET in Delhi/NCR region are from Schools, non-formal schools and Creches. The cost per child per annum is INR 4500. (300 meals per annum)
They are doing well at school despite adverse circumstances and conditions. The fact that raising 22500 INR or more can give food to 5 children for a whole year is something that I am very excited about.
Please support my campaign and let us together bring confidence and change into the lives of these fellow students. Most of them drop out of school because they don't get to eat anything the whole day and fall sick. This initiative by RESPONSENET motivates students to go to school, remain healthy and continue with their education with a big smile.
Please fund this campaign. You can also share it on social media as that will be a big help.
