WHAT WE DO
From traffic signals to railway stations, child beggars in our country are a ubiquitous sight. While we cringe and complain, a mechanical engineer from Delhi is doing something about it. Meet Ashish Sharma, who is walking 17,000 km to spread awareness about child begging. The campaign, Unmukt India, was flagged off in August 2017.
Ashish believes it is imperative that we, as a society, fight this menace. The young techie quit his comfortable job and started campaigning for the cause, says a LinkedIn post. Throughout this campaign, he will cover 29 states, seven union territories, and 4,900 villages. Most of his days begin and end with speaking to multiple people from schools and colleges. He believes in building a strong network of individuals who will proactively speak about the issue. Talking about his inspiration, to The Logical Indian, he said,
I have been visiting old-age homes since class six. But soon I realized that the root cause of our problems lies with the children in our society. If the children are not happy, how will we ensure better lives for the senior citizens? There are so many child beggars on the streets, nobody does anything for them. I knew I had to do something for them. But how many lives can I touch individually — 50 or even 100? My aim is to mobilize the entire youth to achieve a larger goal.
When asked how this campaign is going to change mindsets, he said,
The change I am aiming for is at a psychological level. Once people get to know that someone is walking 17,000 km for a cause like child beggars and going through immense pain, they’ll also be touched at some level. This will help in getting them mobilized.
Ashish plans to hold a nationwide event, 'Unmukt India', on June 14, 2018, to unite 100 crore voices pledging for the cause and to propagate the benefits of education.
Sanitary pad drives
Many women living in poverty use rags, newspaper, or even mud to manage their menstrual periods. None of these work very well and can introduce infections or injuries; they also circumscribe women’s movement. Often, women fear being in public without protection from blood staining.
In Mumbai we are running various sanitary pad distribution drive to various slums and ngos , lead by Bhhavini Mehta.
So far, only political parties are leading wide spectra of twitter.
We Duayen foundation has started a social media buzz to raise social issues at national level and to create maximum awareness in cost effective way.
Currently more than 30 Ngos are part of this campaign.
An App is designed for the same where we have integrated the entire public social circle with government to help government in most effective way and to cease its maximum burden with few clicks. The cause is also supported by government.
