Clothes Donation

ISHWAR conducted a Clothes Donation Camp to collect and donate clothes to the poor and needy.

57 families at the New Delhi Tuberculosis Centre of Lok Nayak Hospital benefited from this exercise.

The donees were patients suffering from Tuberculosis and so poor that they could not even buy medicines from the market. It is so difficult for them to provide the basics for their family that luxuries and technologies like mobile phones, computers, broadband internet-- are things they can scarcely imagine.

[ Education & Vocational Training for the Girl Child ]

The adverse attitude towards the girl child signals a catastrophe of serious demographic imbalance and degeneration of socio-economic conditions. In our male dominated society, girls are denied equal access to food, health care, education, employment and even simple human dignity. Here sacrifice and dedicated services ensure the well-being of the family, but in return, the girl receives neglected childhood devoid of proper education, health care or even happiness.

In India, the overall, girls' attendance lags severely behind that of boys. One of the major reasons why so many girls do not attend school is because of their workload, both within and outside the household. Daughters are often kept at home to help the family because the social and economic value of educating girls is not recognized. It is a fact that amongst the world's exploited child workers, girls outnumber boys.

Without access to education, girls are denied the knowledge and skills needed to advance their status. By educating girls, the society stands to gain economically as educated mothers usually have smaller families, with healthier and better-educated children.

ISHWAR'S aim is to :
Target the economically weaker sections of the society to provide education and vocational training to girl children whose parental income is less than Rs. 5000/- per month. To counsel parents and families where the girl child is kept at home to do menial jobs into admitting them to schools and vocational institutes.

The objective of this project is :

    • To help in creating an environment for girls in our society, especially the economically weaker sections, to blossom as a woman with respect and dignity.
    • Provide for school fees, books, school-uniform, tuition charges etc. for the school-going girls.
    • Provide for charges for vocational training to adolescent girls to help them pick up a profession of their choice.
    • Provide equipment to enable home-based working, where ever feasible, to uplift the economic status of the family.
