Journey So Far:

I’m Abhijit Sahu, a native of Balasore from the state of Odisha. After completing my intermediate studies I got admitted at Ravenshaw University to pursue my graduation. During those days I got to travel by train very frequently without missing a single weekend & holidays. Although the travel of 150 odd minutes was comfortable, the scene of small kids begging for food & money was heart breaking. Often the passengers avoid such poor & miserable kids which put a question mark on those moral values & humanity that we are taught in our childhood. I used to donate a little amount from my pocket money but that was not satisfactory for me. One fine day on my way back to home I was cultivating my mind for some solution to the biggest problem of Child illiteracy, Child labour & Child abuse. An idea struck into my mind which aimed at collecting a portion of pocket money from likeminded people and to channelize that fund for child developmental work through an organized platform. I shared this idea with my younger sister Abhijita and got an overwhelming response which further reinforced my idea. I created a Facebook group named Star Charity and added 5 of my intimate friends named Milap Tak, Anindita Kundu, Samsad Khan, Abhik Nayak & Sani Joseph. An unconditional support from my friends circle to contribute an affordable portion of pocket money gave rise to the platform named Star Charity. On 28th May, 2014 it started with only 7 members and gradually with the word of mouth spreads it raised to 100+members in 2017. To recognize our platform as a Not-profit charitable organization we have registered as per recommended legal procedure on February, 2016. Meanwhile our members’ network covers not only the top cities of Odisha but also Kolkata & its nearby areas. Through various drives we have implemented our initiatives and under one platform we are serving with real happiness. We are experiencing the small changes which further propagate us to work more enthusiastically. To achieve our goals I seek your support to be a part of the initiative. Together we can achieve the true essence of our tagline- We Love…We Serve…We Care…
