After being part of NGO for almost 8 years, we have discovered a way by which a NGO can be run without monetary funds. Yes ! you can help people without much money as well. We are mentioning the ways which are more applicable to child welfare NGO, but most of these will be applicable to other formats as well.
Here are a few things that can be done:
1. Teach for free
2. Ask for donations in kind rather than cash. People are more comfortable about bringing 100 notebooks on their own as compared to paying for 20 notebooks in cash.
3. Ask your members to donate old toys and clothes. Also insist them to ask their neighbors (specially if they have growing children)
4. Use social media for campaigning, marketing and communication. It gives wider reach and is less expensive than printing.
5. For your cash requirements, you can collaborate with some school, college, institution for their monthly stock of old newspapers. After selling this scrap you can have good amount of money.
6. Sell photographs from your events to members. Members are sure to buy pics of their good deeds. Book it before getting it printed by showing pics on screen.
7. Collaborate with preschools/schools for donations of toys and old clothes from children on special occasions like Diwali or Christmas. You can also conduct a small event in school for acknowledging their support.
8. Ask friends for their services rather than paying for it. Some of your friends are sure to have passion for photography and good cameras. Invite them over and ask them to click good moments. Like wise a designer in your group might help you for designing good posters.
9. Be honest in your approach. Accept money only if you need it and spend it wisely.
10. Be as transparent as you can and people will be more than willing to contribute. People like making efforts to bring stuff themselves rather than just just giving money and not knowing what happened to it. Make best efforts to call people to events you conduct so that they can experience joy of giving and feel proud.

One more time team of Shemrock schools from Delhi opened their heart for little friends of Sapney by donating bags full of toys and clothes. We received the goodies from their team on the event of Christmas.
Last year also, we received wishes from Shemrock team in form of clothes and toys. The event was covered in print media by national daily “The Hindu”. The event also got featured in “Jagran”. Here is the link for the same: http://cityplus.jagran.com/city-buzz/christmas-with-needy_1325494815.html
We thank the entire team of Shemrock and Shemford school for supporting the cause and we wish them progress and prosperity in all their endeavors.
Lat year we utilized the clothes and toys which were donated at event organised in slum area of Saraswati Vihar. The event Smiles 2012:) received lot of praise and response in terms of members attendance. But this time we have received even bigger lot of clothes and toys so we really need to scale up our efforts for bigger event. Since we already have lot of stuff to donate, the only thing we ask from you is your support in spreading word about Sapney and your blessings at the time of event. More than anything else, what inspires us the most is the large number of people at the event.
Thanks for your time and love for Sapney. Love children and stay blessed !
One more day added to the celebrations of our lives. One more event of Sapney where we had smiles all around us and we were smiling as well. Many smiles added to the faces of kids who enjoyed the event and many more dreams fulfilled with small effort of Sapney Team.
If you missed it by chance, here is the details of what happened on 6th Of October, 2012 at Saraswati Vihar Slum area.
Painted with Love
We actually started off a bit early this time, by getting the venue painted a few days before the event. The venue was not in a very nice condition when we first visited the place a week before the event. It was full of damp marks , paint falling off the walls and bricks were clearly visible through the washed off paint. The blackboard too was not in condition where on the teacher could write a word. With the efforts and contribution of the members we were able to get the venue painted for Rs 3500 by Bhagvan Das Ji, who is the resident of same slum area. In this peak time before Diwali any painter would have asked Rs 5000-6000 for the task, but we could somehow negotiate with the person who painted, as 3 of his kids were also studying at the center. The teacher, Mrs Shashi Ji was a great help in helping us contact the painter. She also contributed in getting the venue painted by being there at the venue when the work was on, and scheduling the classes accordingly. All the members who were there appreciated the paint job being done.
We made it magical. Literally !
Yes, its true that we created magic this time which, the kids and the members are sure to remember for long time. The magician Mr Mahesh was star of the show. He was so cooperative and engaging . He made sure that all the kids participated in making magic happen. He asked for Rs 1700 for a show of 30 minutes. Whenever he performed a trick, kids exclaimed by saying a very poetic, waoooooow. He taught kids a simple tissue paper magic, which was a learning for us as well. Thanks to Rhythm Jain and Abhishek Dhingra for contributing and making magic happen.
This time we had lots of stuff to give. So much so that the kids were actually finding it tough to carry it while going home ( We helped and made sure nothing felt off their little hands). While leaving the venue the kids had a bright colored packed toy, clothes suitable to their age and gender, a notebook, crayon colors, a pencil, a pack of chips and a lot of memories to cherish. The stuff was contributed by Shemrock Play School ( Pitampura ), Anjali Gupta, Aman Deep Singla, Megha Gupta, Sumit Chawla,Bhawna Aneja, Yukti Tuli, Vabhav Wadhavan, Pallavi Tandon, Megha Chitkara. (Please let us know if somehow we have missed any name.)
This is not the end as there is lot more to it. Thanks to Pooja Aggarwal for contributing the blackboard / whiteboard which will help kids learn in better way. To further decorate the walls of the center, kanika Kalra had charts of “parts of body”, “animals”, “ABC” and “Hindi alphabets”.I must mention here that Kanika have been playing much bigger role at the events ever since. Kanika along with Anshu, Priyanka, Bhavna, Megha Gupta, Sumit Chawla started interacting with kids and made them dance, laugh, share jokes, poems and had a blast. Thanks to Sumit Chawla, Ankit Mittal, Aadhar, Bhawna and Sunny for clicking lovely pics and capturing the magic moments in their cameras.
