Immediate need for constructing a home for 48 children under our care!!!
Reaching Hand, as of now, accommodates the kids of New Home in a rented premise. It currently consists of 46 children (23 girls + 23 boys) placed in two buildings. Our dream is to build a Dream Home and Dream School for our children along with a kitchen, canteen and a huge ground that can eventually accommodate 500 children. As part of Phase I of this project, with the help of our large hearted donors, we have already acquired 4 acres of land at ManchapanaHosahalli, just outside Bangalore.
We are under a constant threat of being asked to vacate from the rented premises in which New Home currently exists, hence the urgency to have a place of our own. Our immediate plan for Phase II of our project is to raise funds to build a home that can accommodate the existing children.
We need to construct 17000 sqft to complete Phase II of the Project.
If each Reaching Hand supporter donates Rs.2500 INR/ $40 US (the price per square foot), this Dream Home will come true!. Of course, any amount you are able to give, large or small, will benefit these children
Phase II – RS.2500 per Sq.ft. X 17000 Sq.ft = 4.25 Crores
Doesn’t that sound amazing!! But that’s not all. As a token of gratitude for your support, your name will be displayed on the Wall of Fame that we are going to have in the Campus.In addition, you can avail 50% tax exemption for the donations under section 80G.
As of now we have received around Rs.60 Lakhs. We were surprised by a woman who took up an initiative to raise money for our home and told all the people in her apartment about Reaching Hand.She asked for donations and collected Rs.55000/- INR! The most touching moment for us was when little Arushi , from the above said apartment, hearing about the children’s plight, brought in her piggy bank and donated Rs.250/- INR.
