It is rightly said that, when the cause is noble, it bags in a lot of attention by itself.
Similar is the story of AWAAZ – the voice of youth. This mission was started on 25th Dec 2016, with an aim to promote talent in the people of the slums. It is indeed a brilliant idea initiated by Mr. Alok Sharma, Mr. Mukesh Muthreja, Mr. Pankaj Agrawal, Mr. Suyash Sharma, Mr. Saurabh Tipnis, Mr. Rahul Gupta, Ms. Vandana Karda and Mr. Ashish Lakhwani and their team. This event started with a mere 8-9 members and now the team comprises of more than a whooping 50 members.
Awaaz is a group of vibrant and dynamic people who work to up bring the talents of people of slums who are deprived of any platform to show case their talent. They wish to develop people of the slums through the medium of their talents. As of now, Awaaz has started interactions with the kids of these areas to break the ice. They not just provide them with opportunities, they also motivate them to study well, play games and to pursue their hobbies. They also distribute some eatables to them as a sign of concern.
This event which was organized was on 11th June 2017. The area visited was kashi ram nagar basti near udyog bhavan. The team organized a couple of games for the locals and interacted with them, followed by distribution of munchies.
