Help us recover losses due to COVID-19

Hello,  

The sudden but necessary lockdown due to COVID-19 has pushed us into a financial crisis. The livelihood of 45 school staff and teachers is at risk and over 150 students will be affected through this situation. 

We are at a loss for salary payments for the next four months at least. Any revenue from school fees or educational projects has stopped. Inability to pay our staff and teachers will lead to the following:

  1. Salary cuts for all. (Many of our teachers and staff have already had to take pay cuts. They continue to work at reduced salaries. This has majorly impacted our staff members who come from disadvantaged backgrounds.)
  2. Laying off staff and teachers. (If we are unable to raise funds now, the jobs of 45 people are under threat. Most of our staff members are the sole breadwinners of their families during this lockdown. Losing their job would put their families at risk.)
  3. Eventual closure of school. (Lack of funds might lead to this. Inadequate staff and teachers on school might lead to closure of school, thus leaving 150 students at risk of losing access to education.)


Your support now can change people's lives. You will help provide a steady source of income and moreover you will help children come back to school.


In times of crisis like this, we do not want to abandon our staff and teachers.

More than 50% of our students come from families of artisans, daily wage workers, farmers and other BPL backgrounds, who need the continuity and support of their school now, more than ever. Their families are hit economically and may not see a steady income for the foreseeable future. This poses a problem for the families to send their children back to school. We would like to be in a position to welcome all children back to school once we tide over this situation.

Right now, online giving is more important than ever as it will allow us to put your gift to work right away.

To survive for the next 4 months, we need to raise INR 12 lakh now.
Our goal is to raise at least 3 lakhs each for the coming 4 months. Hopefully, at the end of 4 months, we will receive fees again and can start our educational projects too.

Dear all,

You've been a pillar of strength during these harsh times. With your help we have raised over INR 4,80,000 /- that has been used to sustain our teacher and staff salaries. This has enabled them to provide for their families and support our school students in turn. We cannot thank you enough.

With a heavy heart we have to say that we have not been able to achieve our goal amount, nor have we been able to reach the half way mark of 6 lakh rupees and the crisis continues.

We are closing this fundraiser for now but will continue looking at other avenues to raise funds for the school.

If you would like to continue supporting us, please write to us at sponsor@nirman.info .

You could also support a child's education during these times by sponsoring a child at our school.


You can find us at www.nirman.info or follow us on Facebook for more information.


Thank you once again,
NIRMAN family

Hello Friends of NIRMAN,

One of NIRMAN’s main areas of focus has always been the patronage of and innovation in the arts. In the ongoing pandemic, NIRMAN has been fortunate to receive the support of artists such as Raman Iyer, who helped us raise funds by conducting two musicial sessions and raising awarenss of our cause. And film-maker, Satyanshu Singh, who offered lectures on cinema for film-making enthusiasts and donated the ticket sales to NIRMAN's fundraiser.

We are very pleased to showcase the work of these artists to our extended network and audience. We present you with Anurag Banerjee's work today, who is donating 50% proceeds from the sale of his two photographs, "Everyone needs a breather" and "Winter in Benaras" to NIRMAN's Fundraiser.

These photos, on archival paper, will be available in the following sizes -

If you’d like to buy a print, please contact Anurag at anuragbanerjee26@gmail.com

50% of the proceeds from this sale will be donated to NIRMAN's Fundraiser that will help in sustaining the livelihoods of our staff members and the education of our students in Varanasi.

Your support has been invaluable and this is just one more way you could contribute to NIRMAN's fundraiser.

Thank you,
NIRMAN family
