Join Us To Educate Children

Hi,

I’m Anusha Swamy, I founded the Make A Change Trust in 2015 with the aim of helping as many children as possible to go pursue education for that’s where their life can take shape and they would belong in a social circle and learn more. It has been a wonderful journey of meeting parents, bright young minds and kids with hearts full of enthusiasm to learn and be better. We have so far helped around 120 kids to go to school and are expanding this year to Kovalam, a fishing village in Tamilnadu where kids surf, skate and have big dreams. We need your help to make their dreams come true. 



We have always believed in helping the people in need through various means and also been very careful how we raise money.
Make a Change is a community that raises a community, for this we created a welfare project under Make A Change called Aplusmax/Aplus that encourages entrepreneurs with different abilities. We train the people with Down syndrome at the Down syndrome Federation Of India to create various eco friendly products such as cloth tote bags , paper straws, paper bags, etc and the profits of the sales go towards the welfare of the children. We did couple of events so far and have been paying the kids a stipend every month and also donated a huge sum to the DSFI.
We have been a part of various exhibitions to create awareness about Down syndrome and showing people what a huge difference their time and energy makes in the lives of all these kids and adults while also using these platforms to raise money.
Apart from this we have also been supporting the girls from Lady Sivaswami Higher Secondary School by sponsoring the girls’ education from 2015 until now. The school also reported 100% pass percentage in the year of 2018. Apart from education we also sponsor lunches and breakfast for the kids at the school itself.
Make A Change has also helped and cared for the welfare of Animals, we have sponsored surgeries for a few stray cats and dogs. Every life matters and we truly believe in that.

Dear Supporters,

We at Make A Change did not expect to reach our goal this early and are extremely grateful and happy for every donation. We have reached our goal and also made some extra to help 11 more kids. We value your support and would now end this campaign by saying a HUGE thank you to each one of you and Milaap.

We would like to stop the campaign because we have reached our goal and more and we will also keep you posted about the children and their progress through this page.

Thank you

Dear Supporters,

Thank you so so much for your donation. As you guys might have already seen on my Instagram about Kanish and his dream of becoming a cop, let me tell you that we have done our bit for his dream.

So grateful and happy for every single rupee. So we are going to directly pay up the fees of the children in their school, Mount Carmel Nursery and Primary School and St.Josephs Higher Secondary School, both in Kovalam.

I have gotten permission from the school for partial payment initially, so as and when it gets collects we will pay up and update the receipts here. For now, I’m attaching the cheques.

Once again thank you very much.
