India is going through a rough phase as coronavirus outbreak upends many aspects of daily life. We are quarantined at homes but our community is in desperate need of basics supplies to make it through the crisis. This lockdown has social and economic impacts. Millions of Indians are dependent on each day’s wages for their daily meal. The current lockdown in the country creates a critical need for food. The Webcom Foundation together with the social platform Life Talk Delhi, Roadhouse Café (M22 Market, GK1, New Delhi) and numerous volunteers are focused on delivering support for the families at key locations: Kamal Nayan Society Slum School in Okhla Phase 2 &Tughlakabad Village. These are the areas we all had been working with for the past year, providing educational workshops and support to the needy. The majority of families of the disabled kids from the Webcom Foundation Centre reside there as well. We want to ensure they will all make it through the hard times and we will see the children smiling again! The Webcom Foundation provides transport & distributes the food directly to the people. The Roadhouse Café provides 500 meals daily, while the social network ensures the word is spread and more people take part in the good cause.
WEBCOM FOUNDATION has been founded by a team of young advoates & social entrepreneur who further brought group together to contribute towards betterment of the society with a focus on child education, holistic child development and women empowerment. We share a common dream – a world where every child is showered with love and is given opportunities for their bright future; a world where no child’s innocence is marred by the horrors of child labour, and a world where women’s well being is paid attention to and they’re empowered to sustain themselves and their family. Ever since the inception of the foundation founders have striven hard to deliver service to women & children by providing them utmost level of education & empowerment.
Despite being the capital of India, Delhi has over 4 million people living in makeshift homes in slums that are overcrowded, lack adequate water supply, sanitation, and security. Children of these slum dwellers often do not get access to basic education and instead have to start working to support their family. At such a tender age, they are forced to grow up in a haste and suffer the loss of their childhood and innocence. They are taken advantage of by employers who use them as cheap labour. United Nations recognises the deprivation of these resources to be a violation of fundamental human rights. It is not just the responsibility of the government to promote and protect human rights and fundamental freedoms of individuals or groups. It is the duty of us – the citizens – to do our bit in ensuring equal advancement of all sections of the society.
The statistics and the problem is same across India when we talk about less privileged one in our country be it rural or urban India.
We at WEBCOM FOUNDATION vowed to put an end to this widespread violation of people’s fundamental rights, especially of women and children residing in the slums of metropolitan cities. We aim to empower them through education and employment by implementing models of development that are tailored to the needs of the community. WEBCOM proposes to organise programmes for Child Welfare and Education (wherein basic education shall be provided to impoverished children through comprehensive learning methods), WEBCOM think tank envisages to open toy library (wherein the child’s growth shall be supplemented using educational toys, games and books in an environment which cultivates and encourages the child’s imagination and creativity), Furthermore, WEBCOM proposes to conduct training workshops onn Awakening of Women’s soul (wherein women are empowered to generate self-employment and a means of income using training of vocational and professional skills and also training workshops on AWARENESS ON SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN WORKING ENVIRONMENT OR ELSWHERE shall be conducted periodically. Programs on providing accessible and affordable healthcare to the underprivileged are also in offing.
