Prayas, an initiative of young entrepreneurs - Karishma Jain, President; Shaaz Mehmood, Vice President; Namit Naren Jain, General Secretary; Ankit Agarwal, Joint Secretary & Preethi Jain, Treasurer, PRAYAS, is working towards bringing cheer in the lives of under privileged.
The proceeds of this fundraiser will be donated to the School for the Visually Challenged - Durgabhai Deshmukh Vocational Training Rehabilitation Center for Handicapped (70 girls), Vidyanagar and GHS Blind girls school, Malakpet.
The initial project of Prayas was at the GHS Blind girls school. Prayas is providing amenities which the students here are deprived off and are not fortunate enough to even afford items of basic necessity. The School will be provided with solar water heaters, sanitary pads and other basic items they lack.
The next project in pipeline for Prayas is a school for the handicapped. They have a requirement for sports equipment specially designed for people with disabilities. Prayas will provide the sports equipment needed by the people in this school. Prayas will also sponsor forty rag pickers at Child God Grace Society, Sainikpuri, for good education from a good school for an entire academic year.
These are the two major projects that Prayas is starting with. But the doors of Prayas are always open to everyone who needs any sort of help.
Our vision is to be able to improve the living conditions of the deprived. Be a part of this noble cause and help us to make the lives of those unfortunate, worthy, says Karishma Jain.
