Games24x7 commits towards child welfare; 15,000 children to benefit this year

New Delhi, Dec 2 (TIWN) Games24x7, India's largest online skill gaming platform, on Thursday announced that it will work towards the cause of child welfare in India. Towards this end, Games24x7 will make financial contributions and partner with some of the pre-eminent organisations working in this domain including Kailash Satyarthi Children's Foundation (KSCF), Hemkunt Foundation, Akshaya Patra Foundation and United Way of Bengaluru.

Games24x7 has announced a total donation of Rs 6 crore in the current fiscal, towards causes of child welfare that will include, protecting children from trafficking, facilitating education, distribution of nutrition kits and bridging the digital divide in education and training. These initiatives will benefit 15,000 children in shaping the progressive blueprint of their future.  "The scourge of Covid-19 has been particularly severe on children. Many have been left orphaned, their education has suffered, their families have been displaced and pushed into penury, their vaccination & immunisation programmes have been interrupted, and their nutrition has been adversely impacted. This has made many children vulnerable to exploitation, trafficking, malnutrition and has disrupted their schooling and learning, which in turn has been exacerbated by the digital divide," said Trivikiraman Thampy, Co-Founder & CEO of Games24x7, adding that the decision to focus on child welfare was taken after considerable thought.  "As an organisation, we have been contributing towards various causes, but we have decided that from hereon, our efforts and funds will be focused on child welfare. This is particularly relevant for our country, where we have almost 40 per cent of the population below 18 years of age. The health, wellness and security of this generation will determine the future of our country, so we are making our own humble contribution towards such a cause," added Trivikraman.
