After dealing with the issue of child labour in Stanley Ka Dabba, director Amole Gupte has come up with an initiative called, ‘Tree of Hope’. Amol wants to start a movement to support children and their well being with the help of the general public.
The initiative asks a visitor on the Stanley Ka Dabba website to donate, volunteer or fund various causes that have been brought under the umbrella. When a user chooses to be part of anyone of them, he in turn plants a leaf on the tree, thus making it grow.
NGO’s which are part of the initiative include Akanksha, Aseema, Parivartan, AAWC, Snehasadan and Shiamak’s Victory Arts Foundation. The initiative aims at spreading awareness and action against child labour and right to education in turn raising hopes among the millions of children who are deprived of the basic human needs.
