Now Amole Gupte moves one step forward to help the cause, where he has included the general public to support the cause. Amole Gupte Cinema team, has come up with an initiative called, Tree of Hope. A movement supporting children and their well being. The initiative asks a visitor on the Stanley Ka Dabba website to donate, volunteer or fund various causes that have been brought under the umbrella. When a user chooses to be part of anyone of them, he in turn plants a leaf on the tree, thus making it grow. NGO’s which are part of the initiative include Akakanksha, Aseema, Parivartan, AAWC, Snehasadan and Shiamak’s Victory Arts Foundation. The initiative aims at spreading awareness and action against child labour and right to education in turn raising hopes among the millions of children who are deprived of the basic human needs.
