Raleigh Vibha's 1st Annual Dream Mile
The Dream Mile ... a few miles for a million dreams
Help Build a Brighter Future, One Child at a Time. Did you know that $200 can help support 12 children for one year. That's an average of $16.66 per child for one full year! Funds raised from the Dream Mile will go towards supporting 2 very worthy NGOs, Community Outreach Program (CORP) in Thana, India and Stop Hunger Now (SNH), Raleigh. Sign up today to help support 6000 children through these 2 amazing organizations.

Community Outreach Progam (CORP India) is a non-profit that works across the Greater Mumbai area, providing a platform for the holistic development of women and children, and the communities in which they live.

CORP India has communit centers located in 13 disadvantaged neighborhoods across greater Mumbai.These community centres provide residents with comprehensive critical support that is focused on supporting at-risk children and empowering women. One of the community center is located in Thana and aims to help the children of Commercial sex workers and physically and mentally challenged children neglected by their families and therefore exposed to several risks. The project targets children in the age group of 3 to 14s years of age along with their the families with an aim to giving the children the joys of childhood which has been crushed. As of now, Corpindia has just begun their intervention in life of this new target group and found their response very cooperative for all possible rehabilitation ideas Corpindia could think and shared with them. Corpindia is very well aware of the ground reality that unless the alternative income generation source is not provided it is not possible to convince these women to get mainstreamed in the society as their children are born out of wed-lock and there are no male members in the families. So, to build rapport of faith and trust, the children of these CSWs will be involved in educational and other regular activities to keep them away from all risks. In addition to an after school education programme, a night shelter will be established as a safe haven for the children of sex workers. Corpindia plans to have the night shelter run from 7 pm to 7 am where the 50 identified children will have dinner, undertake educational and recreational activities and then sleep under the care of an appointed house mother.

In the words of Chaya "I come from a poor family and during my childhood days, I used to get sick very often. My father used to drink a lot and he harassed my mother and all the family members. One day my father beat my mother so severely that she was hospitalised. While I was suffering from tuberculosis, I came in contact with a staff member of CORP's Thane Home for Children. CORP assisted me in my medical treatment and afterward I stayed at the Shelter Home. After the treatment I got better. However, my problems did not end there: when I was studying in the 8th Standard, I started getting terrible chest pain and fever. That was also the time when my father passed away. The doctors found out that I had a hole in my heart and the surgery was necessary. By God's grace, my operation was successful. CORP helped me to get a new life."
