One of the major achievements of FFC has been that FFC has been capable of inspiring and motivating the youths and others to understand and take up their responsibility towards the society. Its volunteers work out of inspiration and dedication, a sense of responsibility towards the welfare of the underprivileged people. Its volunteers include people from various age groups and backgrounds.

Some of the Projects:

1) “Disha…..Valuing a Child’s Dream”
The program includes teaching the underprivileged children, their overall development, assisting and teaching them Basic English and Mathematics, providing assistance to the school going children in their studies and encouraging the drop-outs to rejoin school and college.

Apart from studies, we make sure that the children have a room for enjoyment because “all work and no play” can make the child feel disinterested. So we play various outdoor and indoor games with the children, arrange picnics for them, small get-togethers and parties for thechildren.

We look after their habits, and motivate them to practise good habits, keep the surrounding clean, acquire proper brushing habits etc. Health camps are arranged for the children periodically.

2) “Khushi…….Spreading smiles”
The program Khushi has been undertaken in order to provide aid and support to the neglected physically and mentally challenged people who dwell in these slums without proper attention and care.

Also Khushi incorporates to being friend to children with others disorders and take care of the deaf and dumb people too. Khushi tries to speak their silence and give them words.

Every individual has talent, and too a special kind of talent, Khushi, just tries to fill in colours in the uncoloured pictures of life.

3) “Second Earners”
This program aims at providing aid to the economically backward people to generate income for their families through “Learning and Earning”. This brings in a scope to generate extra income for the family.
