Someone has rightly said “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – nothing comes close to the beautiful feeling of having given back to the community. At this very moment, there are thousands of little girls and boys who are counting on you and hoping to receive your support to lead a better life. While some resourceful NGOs have taken up the responsibility of supporting them – they can’t do it without your help.
Here’s your chance to give back to your community – we’ve made a list of powerful causes that you can make a huge difference to by donating to their fundraisers on Ketto.
1. Help girls combat child marriage & human trafficking
Yuwa uses girls’ team sports as a platform for social development in rural India. It operates in Jharkhand – one of the poorest, least literate, and most lawless regions of India. Here, girls are rarely given a chance to choose their own future. A large number fall prey to human trafficking while the others begin training for domestic work including hard physical labour. After having their childhoods abruptly taken away girls are usually married off to an older man at the age of 15.
Yuwa is breaking this cycle by facilitating daily football and running a school. Help them give this basic childhood to every girl child by making a donation here.
2. Help 500 children overcome poverty
Magic Bus works with some of the world’s poorest children and young people, taking them from a childhood full of challenges to a life with meaningful livelihoods. They equip young people with the skills and knowledge they need to grow up and move out of poverty. Children on the Magic Bus programme complete school, and go on to enroll in vocational institute or colleges. They successfully fend off destabilizers such as child marriage and child labour and become first-generation salary earners.
To help children get a trained mentor, regular sessions in a year and long-term support to overcome obstacles, donate to their fundraiser here.
3. Help children who can’t battle cancer alone
CanKids…KidsCan is a grass root level organization and is the only not for profit organization in India that works on all aspects to enable best standards of treatment care and support services for children with cancer and their families from moment of diagnosis through treatment and after – into survivorship on one hand and palliative care, terminal and bereavement support on the other.
2 of their supporters are doing a week long trek in the Annapurna Mountains of Nepal. With this trek, their goal is to raise Rs. 4, 00,000 as this is the average cost of treatment for one child. Help them relieve a child from the financial burden of cancer by making a donation here.
4. Help children with special needs become independent
Umang Charitable Trust was founded with the belief that financial constraints should not prevent any child with special needs from receiving therapy. They work to provide remedial services to children with learning disabilities and autism, irrespective of their religion, caste or financial background. They also provide a range of clinical services from paediatric assessment to therapies for differently abled children who are in need of a specific treatment.
To be able to rehabilitate maximum economically disadvantaged children with special needs, they need funds. Support their fundraiser so they can help these little angels become independent by donating here.
Every child deserves a shot a better life and with the smallest amount of donation you can gift it to them. So go ahead, make a donation and give back to the community.
