Provide Beds for Sphoorti children


This campaign seeks to provide beds for 160 children.

Sleep is one of the most important activities we do to boost the quality of all aspects of our lives. For about 10 years, Sphoorti children slept on floor as we were short on space as well as did not have resources to purchase beds for our children.

We have recently constructed a Home for our children but our children have no beds to sleep on. All our funds have gone towards the building costs. We need your help to buy enough beds so that each child has his/her own sleeping space.

For many children, getting the proper amount of sleep has not just been an option. Without enough sleep, school-aged will be unable to learn at their full potential. Sphoorti has been trying to provide the best care in terms of food, education and health-care. 

We need to give school-aged children as many tools as possible to complete and succeed in their education. Providing bunk beds completes the picture.
Research has shown that inadequate sleep can cause misbehavior and the inability to focus and learn. To break the cycle of poverty, children must be given all of the tools possible to succeed in their education. One of these is a bed. Providing a good night’s sleep to our children helps them get one step closer to completing their education.

Beds can also help us protect children from pneumonia and insect bites. We had some instances of hospitalization as a result of pneumonia, mostly in the winter season.

Importance of sleep and the effect on education: 
- Children under age 12 need at least 10 hours of sleep a night
- Sleep deprivation can lead to obesity, hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases
- Children suffering from sleep deprivation tend to be more hyperactive and experience ADHD-like symptoms

The cost of a two-tier bunk bed is Rs 8000 + taxes. 
A quality mattress costs Rs 2500 + taxes. 

80 bunk beds and 160 mattresses can provide good quality sleep to 160 children at the new Sphoorti Campus. 

Cost 80 x 8000 + 160 x 2500 = Rs. 10,40,000  
VAT @ 14.5% = Rs 150,800
Total cost = Rs 11,90,800

No child should be without somewhere to sleep - help us to buy enough beds and mattresses for the children in our care.
