"Mushkaan" is a program driven by the motivation to make a change in the world. It began with a simple vision: to improve the world we live in, starting by helping those around us as we believe "Everyone Deserves to Smile". We believe that while progress has been made in improving educational facilities across India, at the grassroots level there are many stumbling blocks that range from inadequate infrastructure, low teacher-pupil ratio and migration of families, amongst others.
Happiness is a feeling of contentment, that life is just as it should be. Perfect happiness, enlightenment, comes when you have all of your needs satisfied. Hence, our goal is to help in a wide variety of ways, by planning year-round initiatives to help those in need. Our action plan includes organizing food & toy drives, fundraisers, community outreach events, distributing stationery, clothes and much more. We plan to accomplish our goals and make a significant impact, but it has to start with our community first. Our long terms goals are to expand outside of our city and begin to help on a larger, province wide scale. This will be accomplished by growing our team, involving more volunteers, and working with the region of peel.
With the ambition to spread joy and happiness to people in less fortunate situations, we knew it would be a great embodiment for what we stand for.
