Umeed…………because every child is special
All of us at One Earth Foundation & Umeed are excited to share with you the launch of our website (click on link below)

Umeed, an initiative of One Earth Foundation, is focused on enriching the lives of under privileged, less fortunate and special needs children.

Our efforts are inspired by and dedicated to the memories of late Maj. Gen. Raj Chowdhary (AVSM) and late Mr. & Mrs J. G. Badlani.

We take this opportunity to thank all our friends & relatives who have supported and encouraged us to take on this challenge.  Special mention goes to 
  • Mrs. Reeta Shahani and Mrs Manju Mann for nurturing Umeed from its inception
  • Parikshit Shahani & Karan Sachdev for coming forward and helping us with much needed financial support to get this off the ground.
  • Mrs. Anju Sachdev, Mrs. Sangeeta Taneja and their families for their help
  • Sonal, for her efforts in kick-starting our Facebook page and spreading our message.  Tarika for having worked extensively on our website concept & design and for her commitment to maintain the site. 
  • To all our other friends & supporters who have contributed in kind or otherwise and urged us on
  • Finally, to all schools participating in One Earth Foundation’s educational excursions, their staff and students for getting involved in various community action projects that reach out to special needs children.
                          We truly value your support and a hearty thanks to you all.
