Lighting up lives for a better tomorrow

ETA Star sponsors a child at GARIMA ABHIYAN

 Ranjana Solanki is a class VI student and like any happy child she loves to draw and express her creativity. Her older sister recently got married and she enjoyed the function and ceremonies immensely. Little Ranjana is also a member of the Bal Panchayat. All the myriad colours in her water colour painting express her joy of life and her hopes of a vibrant future.

ETA Star is committed to protecting and enhancing this very future , for Ranjana and many other children like her. So that they may reach their full potential and become successful, responsible citizens one day. The platform for this dream has been successfully provided by Action Aid. This NGO, along with Garima Abhiyan has been tirelessly working in the Dewas district of Madhya Pradesh, since 2002. Fighting for the basic rights of freedom and dignity, of over 3500 poor Dalit families living across 34 villages.

Women’s rights, Agricultural land rights, Freedom from Bonded labour, Rehabilitation of manual scavengers and their children, Untouchability are just some of the social and civic issues they deal with.

The little brave hearts of the Bal Panchayat have secured safe drinking water for their schools, some of them have been from bonded labour and some families have received emergency support when a storm destroyed their homes.

In recognition of its work to protect and ensure human dignity, Garima Abhiyam has received the M.A.Thomas National Human Rights Award for 2012.

Positive things may happen when the community comes together and joins hands to support a good cause. And we at ETA Star are proud to be part of such a praise- worthy movement.
