Warm the Winters
Global Women Power has started with a new project which is aimed at helping kids from poverty-stricken areas in India to have good warm clothes and shoes so they can have warm winters. Through ‘Warm the Winters’ project, each kid will be provided a pair of good quality shoes and a sweater/jacket to beat the overwhelming cold.
During winter season the temperature ranges from 5 degree Celsius to 10 degree Celsius. Due to poverty, most kids do not have warm clothes or shoes to wear. These kids belong to poor families with their parents working mostly as house helps or laborers.
EVENTS CONDUCTED THROUGH THIS PROJECT
This project began in the state of Punjab. It was conducted in the New Government School in Fatehgarh Sahib followed by Government Elementary School, Kalundi.
HOW TO HELP THE NEEDY?
The cost of sponsoring shoes and sweaters to each student is $10.The minimum donation for this project is $10 (for one kid) and the maximum donation is $100 (for ten kids). Global Women Power accepts donations for the ‘Warm the Winters’ project through online transactions (Amazon Payment Gateway) from the GWP website or a check drawn in favour of GWP.
The first phase of ‘Warm the Winters’ began in the month of October 2016. Since then, two phases of distribution have been completed and third phase will be conducted in the month of February 2017. This project will be an ongoing project of Global Women Power.
