PROJECT – AAHAR
Who we are:Desire Foundation (http://www.desirefoundation.org/) is a government registered trust based out of Bhubaneswar. For the past three years we have been working for the benefit of the people; especially children living in the destitute areas. We are a cohort of youngsters studying in various colleges working for the cause of the society. Currently, we are working vigorously towards implementation of RTE Act section 12(1)(c) through which we facilitate admissions of disadvantaged children of the society in private schools, thereby giving them an equal education opportunity. Alongside, we take up many small time projects. Last month we did a joint, global project with Liter of Light and Executive Committee of UAE to install solar lamps and solar street lights in two villages. We jointly worked with Mr.Ilac Diaz, the CEO of LiterOf Light. (http://www.desirefoundation.org/welcome/p3/)
Our new initiative:This month we are planning to conduct a two-day drive to provide food and clothing to children in and around Delhi, Kolkata and Bhubhaneshwar. For that we have tied up with various restaurants, food bloggers, insta pages on food, media, etc.

We are conducting this two-day drive on 30th September & 1st October, 2017. Most of the distribution will be during 11-2pm on both days. However, we are having some distributions in evening between 7-8pm on the first day.
