A team of young motorcyclists from the biking fraternity have come forward to support the kids in Shikshangram – an orphanage in Malavali, near Lonavala.
Naked wolves, is a registered pan India Pulsar 200 NS owners group promoting safe riding and BSR (Biker’s Social Responsibility). Naked Wolves primarily started in Bangalore and soon all the major cities in India joined the clan and today each city has its own chapter of Naked Wolves. Apart from promoting safe and disciplined riding they also promote BSR, and have been actively involved in helping the society or needy ones since their inception. In the past, Naked Wolves have organized rides to orphanages, rural villages for distribution of solar lamps, participated in blood donation camps as a group and in other events to create social awareness.
This Republic day, the 26th January, all the chapters of Naked Wolves will be doing their bit for the society. The Pune and Mumbai group, which has more than 350 members, would be riding to Shikshangram, in Malavali near Lonavala to do their part for the unprivileged kids.
Shikshangram, a shelter for homeless children, based in Malavali, was founded by Mr. Satish Moon and his wife Mrs. Yogita Moon in 2008. Since then they have been taking care of Homeless children. Presently the orphanage provides shelter to 110 children, and supports their education to ensure better childhood and a brighter future. Apart from focusing on quality education for the children, Shikshangram also provides a healthy and hygienic environment wherein the children entertain themselves and interact with each other through various extracurricular activities. Shikshangram has various ongoing projects, like constructing a new building to shelter incoming children.
Fund raising is a constant ongoing effort and support from all is needed to meet the daily needs of the children. Naked Wolves Mumbai and Pune have collected around One Lakh rupees for Shikshangram in the last 20 days and would be donating some much needed materials to the orphanage and in turn to the kids. The members of the club would be spending the entire day with the kids, and would also sponsor a special lunch for the kids for the day. Lots of exciting activities have been planned to make the day a special one for the kids.
Naked Wolves is trying to get the much needed funds for the orphanage, and are taking efforts in catalyzing the fund raising in the future as well so as to give the kids all they need as soon as possible.
