OF BASIC NEEDS & BRIGHT SMILES!
Children living below the poverty line in India do not grow up in favourable conditions. Like plants that struggle to grow among crags and crevices, they grow up in challenging situations, facing hurt and experiencing a sense of loss very early in life.
At SEESHA, we recognise the worth of every child. That is why, through a wide range of development projects, we reach out to children in need and constantly strive to fulfil their most pressing needs for the present, while also working towards ensuring that they have a secure future.
As part of our annual initiative for children like them, we are getting ready to provide new clothes to 100000 of them this year. Through the gift of new clothes, we will be fulfilling one of their most basic physical and socio-emotional needs. With a small contribution of Rs. 500, you can become a part of this mission and add colours and smiles to the life of a child.
Because a happy childhood is as important as a secure future!Support the Cause

Each of the projects function in their own unique ways to propel the journey towards holistic development, fuelled by indicators such as using education, health, environment and livelihood.The projects are set both in community as well as institutionalised settings. Primarily, we work with children, youth, women, men, families, persons in need of physiological and psychological care, the differently-abled, senior citizens, and victims of natural disasters. Together, these individual projects are equipped with the power to transform entire communities.

- DISASTER RISK MANAGEMENT INITIATIVE
To further support communities that are often hit by cyclones, floods and other natural communities, a team of 20 volunteers have been trained through a 5-day programme on disaster risk management organised by SEESHA. Life jackets and rescue kits have been given to these volunteers who will act as the disaster risk management team in the community and also train other community members on how to act in the time of disaster. Moreover, 1000 families solar-powered emergency lamps with mobile chargers have been distributed to people living in coastal regions to use during power outages in the time of disasters.

- TALENT HUNT FOR CHILDREN
Every year, SEESHA organises “Splash”, a theme-based talent hunt for children across our Child Learning Centres and SEESHA-supported Children’s Homes in different parts of India. Splash is an opportunity for these underprivileged children to explore their talents and express their interests – a platform to shed their inhibitions and stand up in front of the world for what they believe in. More than 4000 children of all age groups participate enthusiastically in this event.
This year, Splash was centred on the theme ‘WE ARE ONE’, encouraging children to put forth their thoughts on love and unity for the building of better families, communities, and a better world at large! Children expressed themselves artistically through drawings and paintings, orated speeches, sang songs, enacted plays and danced to convey their own interpretations of the theme, ranging from anti-racism to kindness towards animals!
