“There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child. There are seven millions.”
It is very rightly said that children are the most precious gifts given to us by god and we need to care for them. The above quote describes that children don’t have any knowledge about the world but there eyes have millions of dreams. Many of these dreams are left incomplete as many kids due to their family conditions or their exploitation by the society are not able to have a blissful life. In our daily life we come across so many child related issues like child labor, child exploitation, abduction, child trafficking etc. which are increasing at a fast rate and deteriorating our country. The reason is most of the times the inability of the parents due their economic conditions. Most of these cases are generally found in the capital of our country i.e. Delhi where children are made to beg on the roads, do household works and even work in the factories leaving their childhood and education neglected.
Concerning the utmost urge to do something and for the amelioration of this condition of children, many NGO’s for children in Delhi have been established working and serving for the cause. These organizations work for many child related issues like for education, nutrition, health services, and for child rights etc. Some of these NGO’s are like ‘Save The Children’ working for equal rights and nutrition of children; ‘Smile foundation’ working for children health and education; ‘CRY’ working for child rights and many more. One of these NGO’s in Delhi for children is ‘Lakshyam’ working for the education of the underprivileged children whose families are not able to provide them education in the very renowned private schools by opening ‘Lakshyam School’ at various centers.
The Lakshyam NGO was started by Mrs. Rashi Anand, to improve the social structure of the society and help the kids to have a privileged future working through its child welfare programme ‘BUTTERFLY’ and ‘LAKSHYAM TOY LIBRARY’. In Delhi, there are 2 centers of the organization i.e. in Vasant Kunj and Ghaziabad. Many campaigns and workshops have been organized by the NGO for the welfare of the children and promoting child education in the country. Lakshyam is working very hard since its inception and have achieved many awards for its great work for the cause. The children are treated with love and care experiencing a secure school environment at the institution. Apart from studies, children are engrossed in various recreational activities like dance competitions, art and craft activities, field trips and excursions providing a joy while learning. The aim is not just to provide education to make the children literate but to cover all the aspects of their development which helps in making them earn a living which they dream for and become an efficient citizen of the country. The organization also works for women empowerment leading to their financial independence by them skilled by various activities held at the different centers.
Lakshyam has been an emerging name among the other organizations due to its sincere and true efforts in the sector and is working with the same spirit to exclude the word ‘underprivileged’ and transform our society into a new and brighter one.
