JULY – OCTOBER, 2020
What can be done to address the emotional well-being of children from underserved communities whose families were suffering financially due to job losses? That was our primary concern when initiating this drive during the peak of the pandemic. Our aim, through the art kit distribution drive, was to add colours to the lives of underprivileged children during corona lockdowns.
“I am grateful to JK Arts Foundation for holding the much-needed art kits and study material distribution drives. My students at Sarvodaya Co- Ed Senior Secondary School, New Delhi come from low-income families. They have been making great use of kits in their online drawing classes and parents were extremely grateful for getting resources for their children in these trying times,” says Ankita Raina. Ankita hails from the Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir. She is a young passionate, vivacious educator and the Teach for India Fellow. Art kit distribution drives were held at Migrant Workers Camps, Raghubir Nagar Slums, Udayan and Upvan Orphanages and government-run schools. 500+ art kits were distributed among school-going children in collaboration with Teach for India fellows sponsored by PO Box Trust.
