To celebrate the Joy of Giving week, Tulip Telecom Ltd. decided to do something for a good cause. They approached Saath to help them realize their ideas. During one week employees of Tulip Telecom collected items like toys, clothes, packaged dry food and stationery for Saath’s Child Friendly Spaces for child-labourers (CFS). The collection was a succes and resulted in a station car stuffed with useful items! In total 250 children will be supplied with packaged dry food, slates, penboxes and books.
Last Tuesday a group of Tulip Telecom visited the CFS in Behrampura to distribute some of the collected goods to the children. The rest will be distributed among the remaining 7 CFS centres in the Ahmedabad Area.
On behalf of the children of the CFS we’d like to give a big thank you to the people from Tulip Telecom Ahmedabad!

Many times, issues like persistent, extreme poverty seem insurmountable to us. But the smallest gifts can make the biggest difference. For the 25 percent of urban Indians living on less than $15 per month, a gift of $15 is an investment in a family or person living in extreme poverty. With just $15, you can empower someone to start their own business venture; seek out new forms of employment; or to overcome their disability or disease. Our service users in slum areas pay a token fee for the services we provide. The rest is underwritten by donors like you.
Gifts from US-based donors who utilize GiveIndia.org to make a donation to SAATH between Dec. 15 and 31 are eligible for a match of up to $3,000!
