Dharma Bharathi Mission is continuing its journey with a mission of contributing significantly towards reducing poverty, improving health facilities, increasing access to education and awareness, increasing availability of employment, and income opportunities.

2020 has been a year of compassion towards humanity and huge changes. For example, all the traditional shops turned into digitized eCommerce businesses due to COVID-19 lockdown, and education took a drastic change from classroom teaching to online learning.

What about those kids who are dependent on slum school for their education and do not have access to smartphones or wifi etc.

Is this the India of Digital Equality?

These were the questions that constantly haunted us and forced us to come up with a solution. We started providing online classes to a few slum students through smartphones donated to them, realizing the fact that their family won’t spend money on education, as this pandemic has brought the crises for food and other essential needs in sharp focus. For their family, the need is “ROTI KAPDA MAKAN” not educating their kids.

This fundraiser is for all the slum students who cannot afford to go back to the school even if this pandemic ends. The parents who have lost their jobs will first focus first on finding jobs and surviving. Education will be the last priority and a casualty. Even the slums schools are struggling to survive as the parents can't even pay the meagre fees that they used to charge.

We have initiated this mission with the goal of providing them with smartphones and internet packs. We are constantly working with our team to provide them, online classes, through smartphones and free internet packs and we don’t want to stop here because of low funds. 
We will need 200-250 phones quarterly. Maximum cost will be 6,000/-per phone. After the course, the beneficiary will be required to return the phone, and these can be reused for at least one more batch. We can even look for giving one phone amongst 2-3 beneficiaries asking them to share. 
As regards Data Packs- For a three-month batch, and daily class of 2 hours and practice sessions, they will need a plan for 1GB data per day for which charges will be around INR 150 per month or max INR 500 per quarter. Thus with a contribution of Rs. 6500 /- you can support the education of an underprivileged child. In this first fundraiser we are targeting to raise money for 75 such students who are in Class 9th & 10th and need it foremost. 

If you believe education is a weapon of empowerment and should be given to all for their survival, then join us in this mission of digital equality of education for slum students by giving your contribution to this noble idea and make it a success.

All the funds that we would generate would solely go for the benefits of these slum students in the way of providing them with smartphones and daily internet packs with our classes.

We all surf the internet for things like tips on cooking food to playing games. Let’s help someone to educate herself or himself to get through the odds of her/his life.
