    This fundraiser will benefit

    build a model school for children of illiterate parents

    from Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh

80G tax benefits for INR donations

Founded in 2004, Hope and Joy Society for the Under Privileged is the NGO behind the successful K-8 school Asha Deep Vidyashram in Varanasi, India.

For 16 years Asha Deep has been serving children of illiterate parents, offering them quality education in a loving environment. Most of our teachers have been with us over ten years. They understand the special needs of underprivileged children and work hard to teach not only facts and formulas but to instill the confidence and critical thinking skills necessary for future success.

Until now, the school has been running in a rented building, but, due to a large bequest, it has recently been able to purchase a 1300 sq metre plot of land on which to build its own school. While we have over half of the money necessary to construct a suitable building, we still require about 50 lakh rupees to fully fund the planned structure. We will start construction this November with a target of being able to open in the new location in July 2022.

Our school is mostly funded by private, caring individuals. Building our own school will allow us not only to save on rent each month, but will allow us to expand our school through Class 12 so that our students will have a firm educational foundation as they move on to college.

We hope you will consider giving toward our dream school. Be a part of giving a poor child a real chance at success in life!

Maximum class size: 24
Planned enrollment (K-12): 350
Planned sq feet: 10,500
Total estimated cost: 1.8 crore rupees
Land location: Narottampur Kala, Varanasi (Google Maps link)
