In a bid to help the children from marginalised waste-picking communities from around the country, the Pacific Recycling Foundation is organising a Christmas gift and stationery drive.
They aim to brighten the lives of children of over 1,000 collection pillars of recycling this festive season.
An invite is extended to people and organisations to join hands on this initiative.
The founder of PRF, Amitesh Deo says these families are often residing in poverty-stricken and vulnerable communities and face substantial challenges, and lack access to basic services.
He says these families are involved in informal waste picking, enduring immense struggles, and societal stigma while contributing significantly to keeping our environment clean and sustainable.
Deo says this initiative stands as a testament to gratitude and appreciation for these resilient communities, it is a heartfelt effort to ensure that the children, who might otherwise go without any gifts, experience the joy of the holiday season and are also able to prepare for the next school year.
He emphasized the significance of this initiative, stating, that the PRF’s Christmas Gift and Stationery Drive is more than just presents, it is also a symbol of acknowledgment and appreciation.
People are urged to take educational toys and stationery, contributing positively to the children's development.
PRF requests refraining from gifting toys that encourage violence.
