Brace(let) yourselves for Friendship Day & Rakshabandhan with ChildRaise!
August is here and so is Friendship Day on Sunday, August 7th & Rakshabandhan on Thursday, August 18th. Both these days are special in our lives. Have you thought about how you can make these days extra-special?
We have an answer! Take a look at these beautiful bracelets. Do you know who’s made them?
He is Sumukh Dadrawala, a young man in his 20s who happens to have Cerebral Palsy. He has completed his schooling from Punarvas Special School in Goregaon, Mumbai. Due to Cerebral Palsy, his movements have limitations but that has not limited his dreams! Sumukh wanted to study further and expand his horizons. So he enrolled in Yashwantrao Chavan Open University. Guess what? He completed B.A. with First Class. Further, Sumukh completed some basic computer courses & honed his skills so he could enter mainstream employment arena.
Sumukh was directed to us by an activist parent. He called me up with a lot of hope & introduced himself to us. He insisted that we give him some work to do. We did not have much work which he could do from home at that point of time. Sumukh was persistent and insisted that we give him some work. We were extremely impressed with his determination to work, thus our association began.
One day, Sumukh came to our office with his mother who has always supported him in all his endeavors. He learnt how to send emails, SMS messages to our Disability Helpline – DISHA callers and continued to do so with great commitment.
He has created an everlasting bond with us. We have great admiration for him and his fortitude, commitment, warmth, creativity, positivity and zest for life. Presently, he goes to a sheltered workshop to make beautiful bracelets/ bands. Sumukh will be very happy if you appreciate his work. He has put his heart & soul into this piece of art. We’re sure that you will reach out to Sumukh.
Make your Friendship Day & Rakshabandhan all the more special by buying this beautiful band that will create an everlasting bond between Him & You.
