"Stagestruck: Join our campaign to support CHILDLINE 1098"
Drama Club, RBK International Academy
Greetings from the members of Stagestruck, the Drama Club at RBK International Academy!
Through our own personal experiences and that of our friends, we have seen how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the mental wellness of children of our generation. We also know that across the country, there are many children who do not have the support structures that we do, to cope with these stressful times.
Which is why, we have come together to raise funds for CHILDLINE 1098, the national toll-free, emergency helpline for children in distress. All through the pandemic and otherwise, CHILDLINE has been a lifeline for thousands of children across the country - one that children have been able to depend on, even when they have had nowhere else to turn to for help.
To do our bit to support CHILDLINE in its efforts, we wrote and performed in an online play on mental wellness. Called 'Confined in the Teenage Mind', the play portrays how children and their families have been responding to the uncertainties and worries that COVID-19 has brought our way. Through our play, we hope to throw light on the support that children need to cope. Please scroll down to watch our play.
Also, we’ve so far reached over 40% of our fundraiser goal, and we need your help to get across the finish line. Do support our cause and contribute generously! A little help from you will go a long way in enabling CHILDLINE to reach out to and protect children in need of care and protection.
