    This fundraiser will benefit


    from Pithoragarh, Uttarakhand


Who are we and what are we doing ?
While working on its mission to provide quality healthcare and education facilities in the villages(hilly regions especially) of Uttarakhand, Seemant Sewa Foundation (SSF) has been running 7 Sanskar Kendras benefiting 180 children in the remote villages of Uttarakhand. These children are generally from poor families who study in government primary schools during the day. SSF runs Sanskar Kendra classes in the evening to help these children with their homework & teach them basics of subjects along with embedding basic etiquette and cultural values thereby on the path of delivering education with values.
We currently provide tuition, sweaters, shoes, socks, stationary etc to approximately 180 children in the 7 kendras and have been successfully running these kendras since past 1.5 years. Each kendra has a tutor from the local area thus indirectly providing part-time employment opportunity to local youth. We have also provided a computer at 1 of our sanskar kendra 6 months ago which helps in digital exposure for children in these remote villages.
These kendras are run in following villages (in district Pithoragarh & Champawat)
Jagthali, Barsayat, Kalasila, Baret Bafila, Moosligaad, Bhattigaon, Gudmi

Who is this fundraiser for ?
Children of the remote villages of Uttarakhand who do not have even the most basic facilities to education. 
These funds would ensure us to continue our efforts for the value education of these children during the year 2020 comfortably.

How do we plan to use the funds ?
We want to spend most of funds to upgrade existing Sanskar Kendras. So our fund utilization would be to cover our expenses for the year 2020 to scope following items
1. Basic infrastructure like benches/mattress with carpet to sit ( currently children sit on the floor over a mat even during chill winters),
2. White wash the walls and color paint them with creative drawings
3. Install atleast 1 heater per kendra to combat extreme cold during winters
4. Install 1 computers per kendra so the children there can also see what it feels like to use a computer and give them exposure at an early stage.
5. Basic computer training for all tutors.
6. Salaries for 7 tutors.
7. Buy 1 set of Track Suit & Shoes per child as most of them belong to very poor families.
8. Provide children with school bag and all stationary round the year.
9. Provide toys, bat, ball, badminton, football etc at each kendra that the children can play with together.

What is the approx cost estimate for above items ?

1. If you cannot donate money, please give couple of hours of your valuable time that could help to uplift the lives of these children.
2. Whenever possible, kindly do visit any of our Sanskar Kendras and motivate these young kids.
3. All expense receipts shall be shared to donors who ask for it.
4. SSF is completely bootstrapped i.e. we do not have any source of funds except the kind pockets of our members, friends, relatives etc. Hence please do contribute, no amount is small. Every penny counts.

This is the first instance we are raising funds through crowdsourcing. Please feel free to raise any queries you may have regarding our initiatives.
