IT professionals who are also a part of the Gayatri Pariwar have been trying to bring positive changes in the lives of more than 200 slum dwellers at Jagtap Nagar, Kalewadi.People taking spiritual lessons are many but very few implement it in their routine life.A group of IT professionals who are also a part of Gayatri Pariwar stand differently with efforts to bring positive change in the lives of more than 200 slum dwellers.Moved by the poverty they witnessed at Jagtap Nagar, a slum at Kalewadi, in March this year, Santosh Kandekar and his nine friends were motivated to think about ways to eliminate poverty. Their spirituality inspired them to look into  education, health and livelihood of the underprivileged kids. Conditions at the slum were deplorable in terms of health, education and livelihood. Most of the kids were not going to any schools since lack of money, support from home and guidance were a deterrent for them.  The group began with educating the slum children. “We used to go to each house and request their parents to send their kids for the classes. We have been teaching Mathematics, English and also inspirational thoughts. Our consistent efforts bore fruits as children who six months back could not read alphabets have now started to read fluently. They also solve maths now,” shares Manish Aman.Time being a major constraint for these working professionals, the group yet makes sure to give a couple of hours every week for this cause. The time will be increased gradually, says Shruti Sharma.The group also regularly collects clothes, pens, books and notebooks and distributes the same to the slum kids. Health care is one of the challenges faced by the poor. The health camp recently organised by the group helped them win the confidence of the reluctant people who now participate in every activity organised by the group. Over 200 residents availed to the free health check up camp organised by this group. Their next agenda is women empowerment. The group is mulling over the economic education to be given to women at the slum to motivate them to become self-reliant. More such programs are on their list to bring about a remarkable change.
