1.Husti Initiative: Running of Umeed Education and Support Centre

Arzoo Arts Collective has run a fundraiser for Husti in 2017 we collected 2000 pounds for them. We wanted to continue our existing support of Husti and the highly commendable work they do for the underprivileged children in Gujarat. So out of our profits, 50% amount we will donate to support education-centric charities in India. This would be given to Husti to support the running of the Umeed Education and Support Centre at Someshwar House in Dabhoi. It is a new project that they have launched in December 2018 in partnership with Action Aid, India.

The Umeed Education and Support Centre will help provide education to excluded communities who have thus far not been able to receive an education. Action Aid’s main role in the Umeed Education and Support Centre is to provide training for the children to learn to read and write. Currently, the majority of the students who come to the Centre have dropped out of school. In order to ensure that the students have the knowledge and skills necessary to go back to school, Action Aid provides training. They have computer classes, hygiene classes and information sessions about menstrual periods that cater to teenage girls. In order to impart the information, they use tools like videos and games.

2.Beyond Social Services, Singapore

 

Arzoo Arts Collective has chosen to support the community based charity Beyond Social Services. Beyond Social Services is established as a charity dedicated to alleviating the plight of Singapore’s lowest income communities. Beyond engages residents in low-income public rental housing neighborhoods and enables the young and old to self-organise around issues important to them. These are often challenges related to poverty such as food insecurity, poor health, debt clearance and aspirations such as housing, education, income generation and such. They adopt a future oriented perspective and emphasis on helping children and youth from less privileged backgrounds break away from the poverty cycle.

 

Beyond adopts a community development approach where social issues are regarded as opportunities for people from different backgrounds to cooperate toward a common good. To enable efforts of communities in low-income neighbourhoods, Beyond serves as a conduit for resources from the larger Singapore community. Some of the designated funds include Beyond Champions, Bridge the Digital Divide, Family Assistance Fund and Education Assistance Fund. Such allocations, with the Education assistance fund, in particular, align directly with the mission of Arzoo Arts Collective. Beyond’s Education Assistance Fund enables children , youth and adults to further their education and skills. 

 

We are excited to work with Beyond, helping them through our project of Artful Gifting wherein our customers buy a gift or souvenirs from us and directly help Beyond Social Services. Since our inception as an art based business in 2018 we have donated 50% of total profits (after deducting cost) to Beyond Social Services as a lump sum amount in 2021 and in 2022. 

 

We hope to receive continued support from our customers for our cause of ‘Artful Gifting’ that aims to help provide accessible and equal education to all children alongside our partner charity  Beyond Social services. The link to their website https://www.beyond.org.sg/
