Today 3rd December is the ‘International Day of Disabled Persons 2023’ and as a member of the Project Help India team, I celebrate the 14 kids who attend the Project Help India Disability Centre in Kotdwara, Uttarakhand in Northern India. We are thankful for the child's unique gifts and beautiful personality. These kids make our lives richer …it is indeed a privilege to educate, help and care for them, to learn alongside them and be inspired by their optimism, courage, determination and resilience in the face of incredible challenges and daily adversity.
I am especially grateful for the many people whose kindness and generosity makes it possible for us to fund our Disability Centre. Our Centre is unique to much of India where children with a disability are marginalised and have no access to education. If these 14 children did not attend our centre, they would not go to school at all.
With just three weeks to go until Christmas, Project Help India is trying to raise $6000 for our Annual Christmas Appeal, which will enable us to give a Christmas present to the 600 students at our 14 centres. We will also use donations to purchase food and goodies to have a Christmas party, and concert for parents, at each of our centres.
Thanks again, love Doug
Every $5, $10, $20, $50+ tax deductible donation received by Project Help India goes a really long way in making a significant difference in the lives of children who would not otherwise have the opportunity to attend school or celebrate Christmas this year.
