They can bank on success
The article on how a charity in New Delhi is teaching homeless kids to save for their future was very informative as well as touching (The Street Kids’ Bank, September 20). I was moved by how these children were not only trying to finance their own dreams but trying to fulfil the dreams of their family as well. Hats off to the street children of India who at such a young age are not only able to save for their future but run a bank as well. Congratulations to the Children’s Development Khazana for initiating this helpful programme. May you continue to serve more children, not just in Asia but throughout the world. I believe this initiative will bring about a big change in our society. Keep it up.
Thank you Friday for sharing this inspiring article with us. While reading the article ‘Saving the child slaves’ (September 6), I was highly impressed by Kailash Satyarthi’s dedication, goodness and selflessness on one hand, and deeply moved by the plight of homeless children in India on the other hand.
I feel it is only because of people like Kailash that goodness prevails on this Earth.
It is not that we are ignorant of the evils in our society but most of us do not want to step out of our comfort zone and speak of such atrocities.
It has become a habit with us to keep criticising the society we live in and not make any positive contribution towards it.
I would like to get in touch with Kailash Satyarthi and explore ways in which I can help in his cause. You can write to Kailash Satyarthi on the link: www.kailashsatyarthi.net/contact
Time for us to act, not just talk
