Desire Foundation is a government-registered trust that laid its foundations on 20th February, 2014 in Durgapur, West Bengal. With the continuum of time, it has expanded its wings with a group of undergraduate students with a vision to make an impact on society who came together to form a youth cell in Bhubaneswar under the leadership of a youth co-ordinator. A combined feeling of compassion and dedication coupled with an immense sense of helpfulness drives this cohort of young generation to enlighten the lives of those which are void. We at Desire work with ethics at various social and ground-level platforms with a single thought in mind ‘To kindle desires as those heart-felt passionate desires will someday become their dreams’ and we with all our heart wish to see those dreams come true.
Holi and Rakshabandhan Celebration
To spread the colors of happiness and to strengthen the sacred bond of love, we visited the orphanage AshaKiran, Bhubaneswar where the girls tied rakhi to the members as a token of trust and we further gifted them with drawing books, color pens and chocolates to bring that glistening smile on their faces. On the auspicious occasion of holi, we played with colors and distributed sweets among the enthusiastic tiny tots of the slum.
The 68th anniversary of liberty to women
With the beginning of another new era of liberty, we infused with the compassion for dreams and dedication to hard work landed ina rural area resided by the daily wage earners.The main aim of this program was to lay emphasis on women empowerment and its importance in our society.A plethora of games like lighting candles, bucketing the ball, needle-thread, how fast can you finish a bottle of Cokeetc were played by women within the age group 18-40 years. It was enchanting to witness the ecstatic laugh of old women. Itended on a joyful note by distributing exciting prizes to the winners and food packets to one and all.
Rice Bucket Challenge
This was one of the unique national level initiatives with an aim to enhance the living condition of the people living at the edge of society that was undertaken by us. In this, we donated 61 kgs of rice to 61 families living in the slums of Bhubaneswar. To fulfill their hunger for hope and to be a blessing in disguise in their lives, we played our part in making their days better on the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chathurti.

In our projects Khwaish-e-shiksha and liter of light we have received overwhelming support by people.
Liter of Light
On the occasion of Diwali, we took a step forward to expand the global open source movement ‘Liter Of Light’ in which a set of devices are used for lighting up homes of the people dwelling in the destitute area of the city in an eco-friendly and cost-effective manner. We thus gifted people the ultimate Diwali gift by lighting their homes, heart as well as their lives.
This was another brilliant initiative to light the lamp of hope and education in the lives of those who are bereft of it.We hosted the programat Unit 2 Boys High School, Bhubaneswar on the blissful occasion of Basant Panchami on 24th January, 2015. We distributed an array of gifts including books ,customized desire copies as well as various stationary items like pencil box, pens etc. among the little generation. With a vision to provide education to those deprived, we proudly provided them a beautiful opportunity for the same.

On the unfortunate demise of Late Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam, we organized a program to pay homage to this great personality. We believed that he was the pioneer of hope, an epitome of success and the ultimate messiah of knowledge and dreams. He was our ideal and he will always be the same to us. With these thoughts in mind, people shared stories and their experiences of inspiration due to this great man. Chits were distributed amongst everyone where people could release the turmoil of loss rocking their hearts. We also observed a two minute silence for his peace Later, we invited everyone to join the candle march.

We organized several competitions for the shining stars of the school and the stream of beauty and dedication was simply overflowing. At the end of the program, exciting prizes were given to the winners and chocolates were distributed to all.
Survey On RTE
To ignite the hearts of our little generation with a blazing desire for education, we yet again took a journey to explore the pityful conditions of the destitute areas of our city. We took the responsibility to spread awareness about the RTE i.e. the Right To Education act or the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education act amidst the slum people.It started with a survey at DamanaHaatBasti where the slum people especially the parents of the rising stars were enquired about their knowledge of RTE and their idea of education for their children. The children were also asked about their dreams, role models, subjects preferred and the general idea of education they have perceived. The response was overwhelming.To kindle their dreams, we also distributed about 150 copies among the slum children.
To behold the jovial innocence of their glistening smiles and to light a lamp of love and happiness in their pristine hearts, we celebrated the festival of lights with the slum children.It started with rangoli making where all the women and girls of the village were invited to make enchanting Rangolis. Children were also invited to decorate the slum with Ribbons and Diyas. The lamps were lit and sweets were distributed among the tiny tots.With a vision to witness the echo of their elated laughter and warming hearts, we made this project a huge success.
