Story

I started helping educate twelve children nine years ago. These children come from underprivileged backgrounds. Their families are below poverty line, their parents - uneducated, and their support systems not strong enough to get them educated. A lot of these families don't see the importance of their children being educated. With financial and moral support, these children are now doing really well in their respective courses of education. 

My funds have dried up because of covid and other personal reasons. I don't want these children to be pulled out of their educational plan at this stage of their life - it will completely diminish their morale. Some of them are doing so well that they are at the top of their class. The funds that I manage to collect will help towards paying for their education for the next one year. This money includes their tuition fees, extra classes, study material and resources, examination fees, annual admission fees and all the other small expenses that they need to cover to get through the academic year. 

Two of these children are balloon sellers who have lost their parents, some of them are children of daily wage workers, and others children of house help.
By helping these children, you are saving them from the threats of getting in to bad company, being unemployed, resorting to begging and giving them a dignified foundation to the rest of their lives.
