Giving dreams flight in 2012

9 February 2011

Today I went to purchase the wood and metal for the chairs, tables and bed for Sunway Children Home. These items will be used by the children at the home. As well, Paper Kite will be purchasing cement, bricks, sand and stone to repair drainages from the home. All the orphanages sign a service agreement before accepting donated items from Paper Kite. The agreement states that all donated items will stay in the home and will be used for the sole benefit of the children. Removal of the donated items will terminate our sponsorship. Our next Paper Kite volunteer that comes to Bodhgaya, Bihar, India will come unannounced to ensure the items are still at the locations and being used by the children. We structured Paper Kite to ensure maximum effectiveness. The items we are purchasing will have a direct impact on the daily lives of the children. Our volunteers will be involved throughout the whole process to ensure the work gets done property.

It has been a great pleasure to be a part of this whole process. From founding this great cause, connecting with others who are passionate and dedicated, to returning to India and seeing how our hard work has made a difference. Seeing the children eat the food we buy, take the medicine we purchased, and attend school now sitting on a bench instead of the floor. It is so beautiful! A little does make a large difference. Donating money or your valuable time contributes to the happiness and future of the children. I have witnessed this and I will never give up!

There are many opportunities to help our cause, including coming to India in 2012. I will be posting the details on our website soon. There will also be an opportunity to explore India during the next trip. Please let us know if you are interested and we will contact you with details. Thank you for taking the time to read this blog :)
