Education Sponsorship

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Education should be a right and privilege to everyone. But unfortunately many kids in India are still not going to school due to many issues such as poverty, child labor, lack of support etc. Our goal is to find these underprivileged children and provide them decent education with the help of sponsors. We have a non-profit school Hope for Humanity in Vijayawada, India. Currently there about 250 students studying in the school.

There are two ways one can sponsor a kid's education

Lifetime Sponsorship

This is to sponsor the education of a kid till 10th grade and the  amount is $2000. This amount is put in Fixed deposit and the interest received will be used for kids education. Hence, this amount can be used till perpetuity for other kids as one kid graduates.

Yearly Sponsorship

This is to contribute to education of a kid till 10th grade on an annual basis and amount is $250 per year.

Example Kid profile

SELECTING KIDS

Through our survey of the community we have a list of various underprivileged kids' profiles who are in need of education. Once the sponsor decides to enroll in sponsoring a kid’s education we will send them details of the kids in need of education. Based on the profile, sponsors can select to sponsor education of a particular kid.

INTERACTION

Every year Mid-year and end of year progress reports will be scanned with a picture of the kid and will be emailed to the sponsors.Sponsors are highly encouraged to visit the school and interact with the staff and children including the child they sponsored. Visit by sponsor will definitely motivate the children. Sponsors can call the school, speak with the child, speak with the administrators etc.

RESULTS

We currently have over 200 kids with education sponsorship. Our goal to help sponsor education of at least 350 kids. We are gradually trying to improve facilities in the school such as by having computer classes etc. Due to economies of scale more kids will help us provide more facilities in the school.

USE OF FUNDS

Many of us have the good intentions to help underprivileged people of various walks of life. Due to the lack of expertise and time many of these people want to provide funds for causes through a charity. However, typically they have two major concerns. Will the Charity properly use my money without any sort of corruption?Will I be able to see where my money is going.

We fully understand these concerns of our donors and sponsors. We use all the amounts donated by the sponsors only for the causes. Also the sponsors can clearly see where donations are going and see the results directly. We have two major programs for sponsoring kids education.
