Cause: First 1000 days.....SAVING EVERY NEWBORN Raising: Rs. 3,00,000 /- Expected no of Beneficiaries: 545 Underprivileged Children Raising Funds for: The problem: In 2015, more than 2 children (below 5 years) died every minute in India. As per WHO, 45% of the under-5 children die in the first 28 days of birth. More than 50% of these deaths can be prevented or treated with access to simple, affordable interventions. Global research says that adoption of a few key practices (colostrum feeding, exclusive breastfeeding in first 6 months, immunization etc.) can significantly reduce child deaths & malnutrition. Lack of effective ways of knowledge dissemination is a major contributor as to why these practices are not followed in tribal regions. Project Description: In each village, we empower resource-person (local) –Swaasthya-Saathi (SS), generally an ASHA worker–with a tablet loaded with highly impactful videos. We use the power of ICT (Information, Communications and Technology) towards robust monitoring & evaluation, and for effective scaling-up. We sustain the change by building capacities of various community institutions like VHSNC (Village Health, Sanitation and Nutrition Committee). We follow a 4-step model: EDUCATE --> ORGANIZE --> CHANGE --> SUSTAIN Request Summary: This fund would be used majorly for building technology infrastructure, R&D and building systems necessary for scaling up operations to 100 villages. Impact Metrics: Reduction in Neonatal mortality, infant mortality & U5MR are the primary goals of this initiative. We look at below parameters to monitor our regular progress: OUTPUTS: Number of Pregnant women, Lactating mothers & other people educated about the key practices in the first 1000 days  Reach: Number of villages & the population impacted Number of hours of learning that has been facilitated  OUTCOMES: Adoption of key practices like Pregnancy checkups, Institutional Deliveries (%), early & exclusive breastfeeding, child immunization etc. About the Organization: ‘I DO’ is a for-impact organization started by a young team of PMRDFs (Prime Minister's Rural Development Fellows) and professionals from diverse fields who are alumnus of IITs, BITS-Pilani, FMS-Delhi etc. Our aim i to accelerate the transformation of India by creating a movement of social leaders.

Cause: Midday Meal Project Raising: Rs. 5,00,000 /- Expected no of Beneficiaries: 600 Underprivileged Students Raising Funds for: The school meal programme addresses the two major challenges of hunger and education. Extreme poverty leads to hunger and in grave need to earn at least one meal a day, children often go to work. By doing so they miss out opportunities for education and generations are trapped in the vicious cycle of poverty, hunger and illiteracy. A hungry child cannot concentrate on education, and hence millions of rupees spent on interventions promoting education of underprivileged children fails to produce expected results. The ultimate goal of the programme is to promote basic education of underprivileged children by addressing the root cause of illiteracy-poverty and hunger. Mid day meal programmes (MDM) aimed at improving the nutritional status of poor children and at ensuring better school enrollment have been functioning in various states of the country for over five decades. As per published fact sheets of United Nations Millennium Development Goals school feeding programmes needs to be promoted to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger ( Goal-1) and achieve universal primary education (Goal-2). About the Organization: The Akshaya Patra Foundation (AkshayaPatra) is a Non-profit organization that implements the World’s largest NGO-led wholesome, cooked food, school feeding program which serves 1.6 million children daily. Confronting hunger and illiteracy has been the greatest challenge before us and Akshayapatra is spearheading the fight to mitigate it. We strive to promote universalization of primary education by providing unlimited, nutritious, hygienically cooked hot noon meals in 10,850+ government schools and government run day-care centers (Anganwadi), in partnership with the Central and State Governments. This endeavor requires umpteen additional inputs, both monetary and of kind, to be run successfully and continuously. Your support and participation will make a major difference towards the success of this noble cause.  Vision: "No child in India shall be deprived of education because of Hunger”. Provision of hygienically cooked, Nutritional mid-day meal to government school going children has been a critical catalyst in increasing enrollment, attendance and classroom participation. A single meal plays a major role in the holistic development of the child. Mission: To Serve 5 million children every day by the year 2020 Volunteering Opportunities: Counselling classes Spoken classes for the government school children Computer education counselling on hygiene & health, basic etiquettes, etc.   The Akshaya Patra Foundation (Not For Profit) Hyderabad Regional Office The Akshaya Patra Foundation Plot # 2 , Kesari Nilayam Krishna Nagar Colony Picket, Secunderabad, Hyderabad Website: Contact: 7702320004 Email:

We would like to draw your attention to the pathetic state of the lakes in Hyderabad. Largely considered to be a city of lakes with about 170 lakes in the city area. There are few very large lakes including the two drinking water source lakes and the large lake in the middle of the city – Hussainsagar.

Whenever a compatible group comes together and decides to make a difference, it needs a community to support, encourage and back it. The collective resources of a community are critical to make a success out of an initiative. The idea of mobilizing the enthusiasm and leveraging passions of the city folk to begin work on a relevant social problem is what gave birth to SAHE (Society for Advancement of Human Endeavour, pronounced SAHI, the Hindi word for correct). SAHE is a not for profit society. Our team realized very early on that a worthy social movement can only be created if it were sustainable in nature. Therefore involving different stakeholders across the lifecycle of a project would create a model of philanthropy that is sustainable in nature. While selecting the cause, care has to be taken to understand what people feel very strongly about, what affects them and what will kindle their minds. The values of SAHE are around Integrity –upholding the trust that our stakeholders place in us through honesty and ethical practices Empowerment - empowering the community to create social impact themselves Sustainability - focus on sustainable long term solutions Innovation - enable stakeholder collaboration to find innovative solutions that may not be conventional solutions.  Besides, philanthropy, SAHE supports several events across the city.
