In celebration of Children’s Day India, CINI Australia invite you to help us raise $5,000 for this special occasion; and support our programmes in: education, safety and protection, healthcare and nutrition.
Children’s Day is celebrated on November 14th across India to increase awareness of the rights, care and education of children, the foundation of what CINI strives to achieve.
“We want to see every child achieve their rights to play, safety, health, education, a clean environment and a bright future.”Jennie Connaughton, Co-Founder of CINI Australia
The day is also a tribute to India’s First Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. Fondly known as “Chacha Nehru” among children, he advocated for children to have fulfilled education. Nehru considered children as the real strength of a nation and foundation of society.
The nation usually celebrates Children’s Day with educational and motivational programs held across India, by and for children. By donating to our Children’s Day India Appeal, you will help children within our programmes to gain access to better health, nutrition and education.
Any donation you give will make a difference. An Australia dollar goes a long way in India where many people live on only $2 a day.
Our 3 programs, IICCHAA, UJJAN and Child Friendly Communities, have ambitious plans this year to include more children and reach more remote villages but we still need a further $45,000 to meet our budgets.
Your support will make real and lasting change. Thank you for your donation.
