Clothing is one of the most important human needs. According to ‘Maslow’s Hierarchy ‘clothing is a physiological need, that is mandatory for every human being to live. The right to adequate clothing, or the right to clothing, is recognized as a human right in various international human rights instruments; this, together with the right to food and the right to housing, are parts of the right to an adequate standard of living as recognized under Article 11 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR). The right to clothing is similarly recognized under Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).There are millions of children in our country who doesn’t have access to adequate clothing. In rural areas kids doesn’t get enough clothes during winter which causes fever and cold, sometimes death. Slums are also heavily affected in winter season, and lack of warm clothes made things worst for them. ”Paridhan” means “Vastra” in Sanskrit which in english is “clothing”. We started distributing clothes among slum kids back in 2015. Back then we don’t have any kind of brand name or proper initiative, but in 2016 we decided to make a brand out of it. Thus we started the initiative under the brand name of “Paridhan”.
