Children helping Children Project

Aria and Siana Kapoor raised USD $6000 to setup a computer centre for the boys living in AIM for Seva’s Free Student Hostel in Udaipur, Rajasthan. Aria (11 years old) created a website to promote the cause and to raise funds did a ‘Swim-a-thon’ where she swam 70 laps. Her sister Siana (10 years old) performed an ‘Adavu-a-thon’ where she presented a one hour classical dance. The girls flew down from the USA with their family and inaugurated the computer centre in February 2017. The centre has 7 Lenovo computers, a printer and a trainer to teach the children. 
Please encourage your children to do similar activities and get their friends to donate too. A separate donation page has been created where messages can be posted  Children Helping Children Fund .
