Mission Statement

WATAN is a Public Charitable Trust designed for promoting Science Education and Rationalism among the underprivileged. However, even before its formal inception, we have been working towards helping the people in distress. We have rescued a few children in last 4 years, a couple of whom are returned to their families, one child addict has been detoxed and rehabilitated, and the rest are admitted to various schools and are continuing at our expenses. We did so, because we can’t lecture the dead piece of meat on Rational Thinking, we want a living, peaceful, vibrant, and receptive society for doing that.
.
Immediately after the formal inception in March 2018, the unprecedented spree of political violence was unleashed. The political class let their dogs free on the unsuspecting common people. We know that it’s a regular feature of the sub-continental politics, that the hegemonic class wants the people terrorized – so that they never question the hegemony. We believe that the terror stems out of “helplessness” and lack of unity. While building a unity is a long-drawn process that is WATAN’s original mission as stated above, for immediate relief, we resort to breaking the myth of “helplessness”.
.
We insist that nobody is actually helpless, there always are some people willing to help. For a start, we have shortlisted from among the list of victims of the poll-related violence, and we are taking care of their treatment, rehabilitation etc. to the best of our ability. For this, we have built a fund what we call TVRF (Terror Victims Relief Fund) – and we are looking for donations in that fund. Oh yes, we are 80g compliant, and the donor gets tax benefit as stipulated in the I.T. ACT. We have successfully rehabilitated some, but miserably failed in a couple more cases, and we want to increase the success ratio. Please join hands with us.
