As a 9 yr old kid, I had asked my parents to take a detour and reach back the red light at the Nehru Place crossing. I had seen a very old crippled man begging for arms. By the time he reached our car window the red light turned green and my dad drove away the car. On my childlike insistence, we did go back, found that man and gave him Rs. 50.00.

Later I asked my parents why he was in such a bad state and why did he have to beg at all? Did he have no home? What did he do when winters came? With many more such questions answered in the most matter of fact way, I wasn’t very convinced. The sight of beggars especially the old ones always invoked a feeling of restlessness in me. I felt something must be done.

Thus started a custom of bi-weekly visits to the Nehru Place crossing, where a group of homeless finds shelter under the flyover, for distributing tea and biscuits in winters. In addition, for the last four years, I have been collecting used blankets in my society and distributing them to the nearby slum areas in DD block Kalkaji, Tughlakabad, and the hostel for blind in Govindpuri which has about 15 inmates.

Able Hands just happened in June 2015 when a friend mocked at me saying, “tu toh NGO hi khol le”. That very evening I conceptualized Able Hands as an NGO and started following my heart under the umbrella. I soon found myself wanting to share my love and passion for Math and Chess with the less privileged. I am constantly working towards following my heart and doing my best for the mankind, the race so fortunate to be able to exist on this precious speck of matter - The Earth, despite all uncertainty, struggle, choice and change !

Our Approach

Math is Fun

Math is more than just a subject taught in the schools. Math is an everyday skill needed by the most ordinary for the most mundane of the tasks. Targeting the age group of 7yrs to 10 yrs. my aim is to equip every kid on the planet with near perfect calculation skills in the most amazing and fun filled way. With an aim to eradicate the term “math phobia”, I pledge to spread the love for Math.

Lets Chess!

Having played Chess for more than five years, I had seen it all. But one day I realized that the game that was once ridiculed as pastime for the idles, was now played as a sport and the children from the weaker sections were left deprived of the advantages that this mindgame could bring to them as well. Why should it become a game only for the rich and the otherwise privileged children.


With this thought I have been teaching Chess to 20 kids some of whom are the children of the maid servants who work in our society.

Warmth

Under Project Warmth we collect old usable woolens, blankets and other clothing items, and distribute them to the homeless across the city. Last winters in 2015, we had our collection points at four different locations in south Delhi. I along with 2 of my friends distributed the same every Friday in the months of November and December at the Nehru Place flyover/ the cold shelter in Kalkaji/ the slums in Tughlakabad, New Delhi.

Connect!

The society where I live has about 450 apartments and as many families, some living since the first allotment by DDA in 1984. So, the elderly form the majority living here. With a view to touch their lives more positively, we recently conducted a workshop on how to use Skype. An hour long class was conducted three times in July 2016.
