Library to the bright future

Main aim of the charity

I have decided to improve/ enrich the culture of some children who live in a very deprived area and have very bad life situation, but that is not reason that they cannot have a bright future in our society. Why they are not able to be a doctor or engineer in our city? I cannot forget the successful Saroo in film LION, directed by Garth Davis in 2016 whose life changed by that Australian couple

How the employee got involved and why

In March 2017 I was familiar with a big poor family (12 people) who live in a very deprived area in south of capital and one of their daughter who was 6 year old was burnt by boiling water (50%) therefor it is about 1 year and half they live half that I have been engaged with her treatment and surgery, building bathroom and rest room in their home, and finally as my DGH plan making a small Library in their home.

What work does the employee do for charity?

As my DGH plan, I decided to make a library for the children in their room. I tried to engage the children entirely to set the library such as building the shelves of library, buying about 200 books in various subjects, numbering and coding the books and listing them in a note book. Moreover I promised them that they will be gifted if they are able to invite their friends in their neighborhood to use the library.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

Intentionally I asked them to do the work and tried to involve them in all details of plan, so they were practicing teamwork, being creative by their ideas, and being mindful about their future. On that day when we finished the library, I asked them to write their hopes about Reading Book, How it will affect their future life. Their writing were lovely when i sew they were pointing out to their future life. All their hopes were hung from shelves to see by them when they are taking the books.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

I believe my mission now is something different. After 1 year and half that's time TO ENRICH & IMPROVE their CULTURE, not only payment for the girl's treatment, or family's cost of living. I should learn them that they are responsible for their future and making it clear for them that although they are poor now BUT they shouldn't remained poor. How lucky I will be if it courses?
