child sponsorship

Child sponsorship is about sponsoring a child and supporting the child’s community to help take good care of its children.

How child Sponsorship works

Step 1

Support a child by making a contribution(s) through: Netbanking, Credit Card payments, Standing Instruction on your bank account / credit card, e-Wallet payments

Step 2

Children from disadvantaged backgrounds are exposed a lot of forces that keep them out of school. We
see children labouring in farms, way side dhabas, and in the numerous workshops, factories and household enterprises in the unorganized sector. 56% of girls in India are either not in school or will drop out before the age of 14 owing to several socio-cultural-economic reasons. Your child sponsorship will not only help us ensure that the child has access to education and adequate nutrition, but will also address the issues that keep them out of school.

Step 4

The community development process begins with earning the trust of the community by promoting and advocating community development activities in the field of education, health, agriculture, livelihood etc. This matures to become a long term partnership that eventually leads to a long lasting social change! As a result of your support, the children and their communities will gain access to their rights to dignity, food, shelter, education and livelihood.

Step 3

This intervention does not stop with the child, but also covers her/his parents. We constantly interact with the parents and council them on the importance of education, right nutrition, Child-rights, gender-equality, time management, health & hygiene amongst the others. We ensure that the child gets complete and undivided support and encouragement from the parents. At the micro-level we also intervene and address the various factors that had initially kept the child out of school.
