An appeal to celebrate 64th India Independence day by supporting needy kids of a village

They have never been to city. They have never seen a train, movie, museum or a zoo. Their life is limited to their village.Their village is still  inaccessible during rains. They won’t have electricity. Every year they lost some of their near and dears due to snake bite. There is no dispensary. They cannot afford even a piece of soap. The water they drink is dirty.They won’t have proper clothes to wear.They are habitual of living in dust & dirt.Off course I am talking about the kids of a village namely Bodkaho,distt.Bhopal. This tribal village is hardly 17 Kms away from the heart of Bhopal. One of our volunteer Shri Ashutosh Baranwal Twitter handle @MainKhuda who visited this village with his counterpart is the eye witness of the plight of the kids of this village.And we are going to celebrate 64th India Independence Day on 15th August of 2011.

What we are doing here : From time to time Ahambhumika provides clothes to the kids of this village. We collect clothes from the people of Bhopal. Our generous supporters who are on Twitter too used to send us clothes, books etc. by courier.
We provide books,toys,stationery articles to the children coming to the primary school of this village.There are 65 children( age group 5 to 10 years) in the primary school and around 60 children( Age group 0 to 4 years ) in Anganwadi centre of this village.
Few examples of Tweeples who supported us
1. Last year Bhopal witnessed tremendous cold. The nights were like a nightmare for the children of this village.We won’t had woolen clothes .The teacher of this village school advised us to provide two pair of shirts paints to the each children of this village so that he/she could be less affected by cold by wearing two pair of clothes at a time. We did so and also appealed to the people on Twitter and one of our supporter twitter handle @MamtaSingh_ and her generous husband Shri Ram B.Singh sent new sweaters,stationery by courier for this kids (
2. @Main Khuda sent books,stationery articles,sports materials for the kids of this village

3.Pratham Books :Last year Twitter handle @prathambooks books had helped us by providing story books for the children of this village ( )

4.Toy Bank: Org Twitter handle @Toybank helped us by providing toys
   for the kids of this village.
Our Plan : Presently we are aiming to set up a small library in this village. Efforts are on
for this and one of our supporter again from twitter has donated Rs.15,000/- for this.(He does not want to be named). Two more supporters again from twitter their twitter handle is @yeayeaiknow Ms. Aparna Jejurikar @vivek782 Shri Vivek Balakrishanan have sent books by courier for this. One more supporter from Twitter @discopiggu Ms.Arundhati have couriered books which are on the way. We are thankful to all these generous people.
By 15th August we are hopeful to set up the library in this small village bringing cheer to the underprivileged tribal kidson the eve of 64th India Independnce Day .
