Fund Raising for Orphans
“Charity is the Root of all good works.”
Yes, it is true not only for me but also for many of us. We can do nothing for others but the things which we can do for others is only to share your part or happiness of life with them. Many people consider it wrong that, “why there is a need of collecting money for those who don’t have parents and who don’t want to grow?”. Some of us also think that, “it is useless activity to go door to door and beg for money.”.
With all these points in our minds my group fellows and I started thinking to serve Orphans students who lived in small foundations, those foundations which don’t have enough resources and donors. Whenever we think, we have to face many problems in this regards. The first thing which we have done, we started finding those foundations who are serving the Orphans through education and all facilities which a common person need in daily basis. It was a hard nut to crack but the whole team members spend their precious time in that to find out such organization.
As a famous personality said:
“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”
After spending a whole week in this process we were able to find some organizations which are serving orphans and they are not very big or famous organizations. But as we have to select only one Foundation as our Mega Project. So we selected “New Life Foundation Pakistan” for this purpose to serve Orphan students through our efforts and gifts. The name of the founder of this organization is “Natan Obaid”. He is a person who is arranging the whole set up and running it with there own help for past ten years. There were some major reasons for selecting this Foundation. firstly, it is a non profitable Organization. Secondly, they don’t have any specific donor and third and important part it is not in a famous area of the city.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
So we Visited the Foundation with our group members. Where we hear the problems of the organization by meeting the supervising person and also the orphan students as well. He told our team that there are no. of problem which our organization is facing like:
1-Stationary problem for students.
2-School Fee problem.
As per our team decided we make some plans after listening there problems. We made some strategies to do fund raising for these children in order to meet their educational problems like school fees issues and Stationary issues. For this purpose we decided to start fund raising from our own classes and then going to our seniors classes for asking donations. We have made plans to reaching out to our teachers and asking them for providing help in our project of serving the Orphan students. We have also make some plans to go in shopping mall and different universities for the fund raising process so that we can find out those persons permanently who can pay school fee of the children so that it may reduced the burden of the Foundation.
We also have made a plan to visit the foundation once in a week to provide the students with English language classes so that they can speak English as well which is a need of the hour. We have made strategies to use simple English learning books so that we can teach them easily and in a more better way.
