A Message from Tarik Kadri, President and Founder

18 February 2014

Hello everyone,

I want to thank you all for your support over the past year and ensuring that our field work in India was possible this year. Our donors, volunteers, and supporters helped us reach our fundraising goals, and for that I am grateful. We even succeeded when asking for immediate support for the purchase of the bicycles. I was so humbled by the outpouring of donations—such an event speaks to the trust that our donors have in Paper Kite.

Over the past four years, we have proudly helped over 350 children grow, learn and succeed to ensure they have a prosperous future. I bear witness to the children’s personal grown with the support we have provided each year.

This year has been the best year for me personally. Everything went smoothly and I have connected with all the children. This was quite evident during our departure ceremony. Words cannot describe the appreciation I felt from the children for all that Paper Kite has provided to them over the years.

As we grow and continue to succeed, it’s important that we continue our hard work to ensure that no barriers exist for these children to succeed and live lives of their choosing. I firmly believe that although the children at Jeanamitabh are succeeding and growing, they need to move from their current facilities. It is deteriorating and very unhygienic. There is a plan to move the children to the new facility once it is completed.

As we move forward, I will propose our biggest challenge yet – finding the funds to complete the final wing of their new facility so the children can move.

Rest assured, the children we help each year are happy and are changing the face of poverty within their generation – all thanks to your hard work. I will forever be thankful to you for allowing my dream to help these children become a reality. None of this would have been possible without you!! Thank you.
