About the project :

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word HIV positive? Fear, untouchability or a hovering death sentence on the positive person? There are hundreds of HIV positive kids being ill-treated for being the way they are. Not being granted their needs and rights and being blatantly ignored and excluded from the society is ironically considered ‘correct’ 

In India, an estimated 1,70,000 children, under the age of 15, are living with HIV/AIDS.  Often orphaned or abandoned by their families, these children need proper care and support. 

RAYS - Aasha ki Ek Kiran is an NGO based in Jaipur. The two homes at RAYS shelter around 60 children between the age of 4-17 years living with HIV/AIDS.  Our mission is to provide them all the support needed for a healthy and happy life: education, medical aid, balanced meals, regular exercise and lots of love! The children attend regular schools. At home, they are also taught dance, music, art, craft, yoga, English and other extracurricular activities by our volunteers.

I am Nandini Kuchhal, I'm 14 years old and a 9th Std student at Jayshree Periwal High School, Jaipur. I’ve started this campaign called FightRed. I’ve been very closely associated with RAYS since I was 8. I’ve practically grown up with HIV positive children at RAYS, have participated in all their annual functions, danced and sang with them and I know for a fact that these kids give their 200% in everything they do and do it with full zeal. Seeing them encouraged me to start FightRed and work for their welfare and dreams.

Since childhood, I have been very passionate about sports specially Squash and Athletics. After having participated in national level tournaments, I know that sports play an important role in shaping the winner's attitude in life. Unfortunately, I had to go off the field recently, which gave me some time to think about it and now when I get back to my squash circuit, I also want to help these children by introducing them to sports as a way of life. 

At FightRed my main objective is to fight the social stigma and discrimination against these children. Help them to be a part of the society through interaction with other students and youth. Provide a platform for their skill development so that they can start a line of their own hand-made products and put it across different online portals so that they understand the power of social media and experience financial stability. 

Through this crowdfunding campaign, I want to raise funds to help them hone their skills to achieve and fulfil all their dreams.                       

Amongst the hustle and bustle of the walled city, the development of metro in the urban areas and the jovial atmosphere of the cafes and restaurants facing the city,  are some kids silently pleading for your help.
