Totally enthralled. That was the reaction of the children at SOS Children’s Villages in Alibaug, India, when on October 12 Hollywood couple Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard jumped on stage to dance to a popular Marathi song.

Marathi is the language spoken in Maharashtra, the state in which SOS Children’s Villages recently opened SOS-Alibaug, its fortieth village in India. Alibaug is just south of Mumbai, Maharashtra’s capital.

What were two of America’s most critically acclaimed actors doing on an SOS stage in western India? Gyllenhaal and Sarsgaard are global ambassadors for SOS Children’s Villages and its partner Esprit. The two joined forces in 2008, when global lifestyle brand Esprit committed to working with SOS in India to support long-term care for 140 abandoned children and programs to keep poor families intact.

Esprit currently supports six SOS family strengthening programs in the Delhi area. These programs help stabilize families by providing education and sorely needed medical care. The new SOS Children’s Village in Alibaug was completely financed by Esprit. The village contains 14 family houses for 140 children. SOS cares for 6,000 children across India.

Inspired by SOS’s Work around the Globe

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard actively engage in human rights and anti-poverty initiatives. Their involvement with SOS stems from their concern for India’s homeless children and their admiration for what SOS has accomplished.

India has the largest population of street children in the world; at least 18 million children live or work on the streets of urban India, said Gyllenhaal. A quarter million of these boys and girls are in Mumbai alone. They lack the basic rights to love and security.

“Protecting children’s rights is a universal responsibility that requires global commitment from us all,” said Gyllenhaal. “It’s a privilege for Peter and I to join hands with Esprit and promote the remarkable work of SOS Children’s Villages, which for the past sixty years has continued to give children worldwide love, security, and a nurturing environment that only a family can provide.”

Jonathan Pryce has confessed he is loving the reaction he gets when he tells people he is starring in a film about the invention of the vibrator.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star is currently filming Hysteria, with Maggie Gyllenhaal, Hugh Dancy and Rupert Everett, based on the true story of a Victorian doctor who aimed to cure hysteria in women and ended up inventing the vibrator.

Jonathan, who plays the doctor father of Maggie’s character said: “It’s a film called Hysteria which is about the invention of the vibrator – I love people’s reactions when I say that.”

He added: “It’s set in 1880 and it’s based on fact. There are humorous elements, for sure, but ultimately it’s a film about female emancipation and liberation.”

The film, written by Stephen and Jonah Lisa Dyer, is being directed by Tanya Wexle, and is currently filming in London and Luxembourg.

Maggie told The Guardian earlier this year: “I play a firecracker whose father is a doctor who is in the business of curing hysterical women. He cures them basically by getting them off and that actually happened. I end up having a sort of unexpected love affair with this guy who works for him, and who by mistake invents the vibrator.”

Maggie Gyllenhaal has been nominated as the best actress to win Oscar prize for her outstanding performance in Hollywood movies. However, she has a humanized soul which aches for the destitute and kids who are deprived of parental love and care.

Recently, this superstar came to India to sponsor a new housing project for those who have lost charm and dream due to poverty and malnutrition. They should be taken care of in special way so that they will be able to participate into nation building activities.

At Alibaug this megastar arrived with bright hope and aspiration. She showered her best wishes for the protection of poor minor boys and gals who are supposed to live under the roof and eat nutritious food for their natural growth.

According to her, it is a philanthropic project which upgrades lifestyles of the newcomers who are still neglected in the society.

These street boys should be rehabilitated so that they must think that the country is always at their service for enhancement of all round development. She has had a tie up with Esprit which is an internationally recognized orphanage and childcare organization.

Alibaug (Maharashtra): Amid the beats of popular Marathi songs, famous Hollywood couple Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard inaugurated an SOS Children’s Village at Sogaon, along with yesteryear Bollywood actor Waheeda Rehman here on Tuesday.

The village, set up by the non-governmental organisation SOS Children’s Villages, will accommodate 140 orphans from the State. The Hollywood couple, who are the global brand ambassadors of SOS International, said they were glad to be associated with the cause of providing family-based care to the orphan children.

Ms. Rehman, who has been associated with the organisation for 20 years, said society should come forward to take care of the needy and the under-privileged. “Why don’t the rich people donate their lands so that more such facilities can come up,” she asked.

The kids of the SOS village and nearby schools in Alibaug were enthralled when the Hollywood couple hit the stage to shake a leg on a popular Marathi song. They also spent some quality time with the kids.

“SOS India has been building Children’s Villages in India since 45 years with the idea of providing family-based care to the orphans,” said Rakesh Jinsi, National Director of the SOS Children’s Villages, India.

He explained that each household consisting of around 10 children in the village is run by a professionally trained mother. “These women are generally from the underprivileged background. We train them to handle and nurture children.”

He said the only criterion for admitting children in any of the 40 SOS villages is that they should be orphans. “Till date we have reached around 15,000 children and many have grown to become doctors, engineers and other professionals in society,” Mr. Jinsi said.

The village supports the children till they can stand on her own feet.

The professional mothers retire at the age of 60 and are provided hostel facility to spend the rest of their lives. “While working as mothers, we get Rs.3,500 per month, which gradually increases over a period of time,” said Jamuna Gadade (32), a mother at the Alibaug SOS village.

Mr. Jinsi said that 80 per cent of the funding for their programmes came from foreign nationals. “They ask us, if you have so many billionaires on the Forbes list, why can’t you people take care of your own underprivileged?”

Talking about the NGO’s plans for expansion, he said, “The next SOS Village will come up at Tirupati.”

Maggie Gyllenhaal, who played Batman’s love interest in The Dark Knight (2008), arrives in Mumbai today to lend a helping hand to the city’s homeless children. Esprit, in association with SOS children’s villages — one of the world’s largest orphan and abandoned children’s charity, is

bringing down the Hollywood actor and her actor husband, Peter Sarsgaard, both global brand ambassadors for SOS, along with Esprit CEO, Ronald Van Der Vis to inaugurate the SOS Alibaug Children’s Village. This area will focus on improving the state of orphans and underprivileged children in the country.

Gyllenhaal says, “Despite the dynamic economic development, it may be hard to accept that India has the largest population of street children in the world with at least 18 million living and working on the streets. There are approximately 2,50,000 in Mumbai alone.”

The village, financed by Esprit as a part of their CSR activities, falls under the campaign Big Bang. According to them, the banging of a drum is universally recognised as a symbol of celebration. Eleven Esprit stores around the world will house a Super Drum, where people will be made aware of the situation of homeless children and asked to bang the drum. Esprit will donate another 500,000 euros to the village when three million bangs have been hit. The campaign will commence on November 13.

“The street kids in Mumbai and elsewhere in the world are denied the right to a family. Protecting their rights is a universal responsibility that requires global commitment from us all,” adds Gyllenhaal. SOS currently reaches out to 132 countries. Gyllenhaal and her husband will inaugurate the village with a bhoomi puja.
