Our main aim was here for sending message in the society and everywhere that education is very important for the children and also we explained the kids that if they will take education then they would be more smart and everyone will give respect.
in first day of Survey we went morning time at Raja Ghat and we looked there some children are making clay pots for selling we all talked with them and they said they do't want to come because they have no money we explained them we are from NGO and we give free education and better life guideline after knowing these lines they excited and said please talked our father after discuss he has also agreed.

India , Varanasi, slums area visited

Five days ago we visited the slum area and distributed food. We also taught them basic hygiene methods (simple washing techniques). With help from our Indian volunteer from Delhi we were able to teach personality development techniques, and have gained positive results from this one day programme. Washing hands with soap is not new but knowing the correct way of using soap and cleaning hands is a great experience," said Shubham, (one of our students who lives in the slums area ) he has now helped a number of slum children, including girls, showing them the correct way to go about it. "Proper hand washing requires soap and only a small amount of water, one should cover wet hands with soap, scrub all the surfaces and rinse thoroughly with running water. The hand parts, including palms, back and especially the area under the fingernails must be thoroughly cleaned," added the young lad like a trained student.
I hope our program will helpful for them and in the near future we plan on organizing more new programmes for changing their lifestyle. Just simple steps like this create a better life for the children and in turn a better future/prospects.
We currently have no volunteers and greatly welcome any help in any possible way. Any ideas or suggestions you may have are also helpful so please feel free to help in any way.

Right now the weather in Varanasi is little hot, anyway looking forward to any help in anyway and we will keep you posted.
