An appropriate query, which may arise, is why any institution, individual or corporate should fund a project like Udaan Empowerment Trust. The answer is simple and straight appeals to the heart. The beneficiaries of Trust come from the severely discounted segment of society, which deserves support. Our modest request to the community at large is say yes for a cause now.
We are writing to propose a donation to Udaan Empowerment Trust, a non-profit organization working for persons with disabilities in India. The trust has been doing exemplary work in providing education, employment, and skill development to persons with disabilities in India. The trust has also established first ever an online disability community radio named radioudaan, Radio Udaan, which provides a platform for persons with disabilities to showcase their talents and raise awareness about their issues. Our radio station has also found mention in the India book of records for being the first radio station completely run by the disabled. The trust has already benefited more than 30,000 persons with disabilities, with 12 disabled individuals getting married, over 500 getting jobs, and thousands more receiving education and training. The trust has created 15,000 hours of content for individuals with disabilities. The trust has been supported by various organizations such as Savlon, Swasth Mission, Ayur, and Enabled Travel in the past. However, the trust still requires a budget of 25 lakh rupees annually to run these projects. This includes providing remuneration for disabled RJs, employee salaries, website maintenance, server charges, and equipment expenses. Our team members have been contributing from their pockets, and the trust receives very little donation. We are also organizing a national conference and the grand finale of Udaan Idol, a talent hunt show for persons with disabilities. The motive of this event is to raise awareness and provide a platform for disabled individuals to showcase their talent. We require 20 lakh rupees for this event. which includes food and accommodation, travel expenses for guests, prize money, and other related costs.
