In its endeavor to light up faces of kids on Children’s Day, Naaptol, India’s virtual home shopping brand organized an event under its 'Nanhi Muskaan' social initiative for the under-privileged children of rural India. As a part of this initiative, Naaptol has celebrated 'Naaptol Baccha Party' on the 13th & 14th of November with 500 slum kids of ‘Khusiyon Ki Pathshala’ run by the Robin Hood Army in Navi Mumbai.

The Naaptol team observed that most of these kids do not have proper school bags and wear worn-out footwear or walk barefoot. Thus, in order to prevent foot injuries and infections and to encourage kids to go to school, Naaptol, in association with recycled footwear manufacturer GreenSole, has donated these essentials to the students.

Commenting about the ‘Naaptol Bacha Party' program, Manu Agarwal, CEO of Naaptol, said, “The aim of the initiative is to take some time off our busy schedules and bring smiles on the faces of these underprivileged kids. By offering footwear and school bags to the kids, we want to encourage them to attend school regularly. Ourcollaboration with GreenSole is in sync with Naaptol's philosophy of promoting sustainable environmental practices while motivating the children to come to school regularly. It is heartening to see the children so excited about their studies under unimaginable adversities, one of it being walking barefoot! We hope the shoes provided by us will be liked by the students and at the same time, make them aware about environmental issues.”

Elaborating on its participation, Shriyans Bhandari ,CEO & Co-founder Greensole  said, “We are thrilled about our association with Naaptol and the ‘Khushiyon Ki Paathshaala’ school children to celebrate a memorable Children’s Day”.

Naaptol has always believed in adding value to the life of everyone through its operations. Under Naaptol’s social initiative, 'Nanhi Muskaan', which was launched earlier this year, several philanthropic activities have already been conducted that include donating a part of the company’s earnings from the orders generated during the Makar Sankranti sale to provide basic amenities to 500 students residing in the Vikramgad Ashram School in Palghar. It was followed by donating towards building toilets for girls students to encourage school admissions. Later in the year Naaptol sponsored the education of 50 students of Girija foundation for 1 year.
