Story

You know abt me, so I need not tell you!! For all the Karma I have done, I am looking for such avenues to repay :-) Help me out with this campaign!!! Wondering whats the connection between this NGO and me? I am one of the trustees of this NGO and with the academic year beginning, I am responsible for getting stationery items for all these kids! About Gold Heart Foundation:- It all started when the founder of this NGO, Mrs.Shri Priya, a teacher by profession, with an urge to do humble part of her in the society, visited schools from low income group areas extending her support to teach kids post school hours. That’s when she realized most of the kids in such schools drop out from schools and don’t even get a opportunity to complete their basic education. Lack of quality education and motivation from teachers/schools are primary reasons behind this. She, with the support of V-set and a band of volunteers formed Gold Heart Foundation and decided to take up this issue to give sunshine to these flowering buds, as the future of India is in their hands. A group of graduates, like me, have teamed up as volunteers with eternal fire in their mind to battle this issue. Children from economically backward families, across schools are being groomed by Gold Heart Foundation to give special care and attention in their studies through its "Tuition Center Program". Gold Heart Foundation is working towards this cause for past 7 years In Tuition Centers, we focus on imparting values and personality development of the underprivileged kids, apart from academics, with help of regular activities which help them develop skills and qualities over a period of time. We have approximately 850 students across 28 centers (3 in North Chennai & 25 centers in remote villages of Thiruvannamalai). Each center is coordinated by one gold heart teaching volunteer who takes care of teaching as well as running day-to-day operations of that particular center. These centers run 6 days a week post schools hours for 2 hrs. Our major expenses are stipend for teaching volunteers and annual stationery expenses. For this academic year 2014-15, out overall expenses for 850 kids is coming INR 9.5L. Out of which INR 4.5L is to support the kids with yearly stationery. Purpose of this project is to raise funds for stationery expenses (INR 529 per kids for 850 kids).
