The light of life

"Right now our priority is to get in as many helping hands as possible as we need lots of volunteers to pull off the project. People are volunteering for both field visits and managing the logistics. We are also thinking of tying up with other NGOs to divide the cost and the effort," adds Oswal. The project is currently funded by the NGO, along with donations from corporate, housing societies and schools. "Several children decided to save their firecracker money and donate it to us instead. Several people have sent in donations ranging from small to big amounts and many people are trying to help," Oswal concludes optimistically.
