Robin Raina Foundation (RRF) is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to the providing hope to underpriviliged children in terms of education, food, and shelter along with a sense of belonging.
The foundation has been setup to raise funds for charity work to be carried out to empower children who need help. The foundation's focus is to make a difference in the lives of children - who are handicapped, blind, mentally challenged, sick or in need of urgent medical help and underprivileged kids who needed education. Each and every bit of money collected will be spent on these children.
The foundation intends to bring hope to children at high risk of becoming street children. How? By offering street school to children with no other access to education. And by offering parents, the chance to learn a profession which will help them to escape exploitative labor, so that they can look after their children properly. It is infinitely satisfying to rescue a street child and give them a home, a hope and a future. But perhaps more rewarding still is to prevent a child from being made homeless through circumstances.
As of 1st May 2004, RRF has donations equivalent to $ 112,000 for charity purposes in its available kitty.
RRF is a public charity that raises money through the following means:
All donations to RRF will be exempt from income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
RRF is working on many projects at present, which can be divided under four main headings:
RRF has agreed to be involved in two joint venture projects, dedicated to providing food, education, shelter and a sense of belonging to poor and underprivileged children.
RRF has agreed to immediately donate one medical Ambulance to Grameen Seva Kendra run by Servants Of the People Society (www.sops.in) (Founded by Lala Lajpat Rai, the famous Indian freedom fighter in 1921), for rural areas around Delhi. This ambulance will have Doctors travel four times a week to far flung villages around Delhi city, to meet the medical needs of the needy children and poor citizens in these villages and shift them to relevant Hospitals to save precious lives.
RRF has agreed to provide scholarship for three years to ten needy Blind children, after they pass out of 12th standard from The Blind Relief Association, New Delhi (a 1944 founded, rehabilitation charity for the visually impaired) based on merit and pure need. (Read story from The Hindu newspaper.)
