Rural poor orphans from Telangana need your URGENT HELP to continue their education, as they face the risk of dropping out, unable to attend online classes due to a lack of digital devices. Bala Vikasa, a well-reputed not-for-profit from Telangana, is looking to provide 200 orphans with smartphones to help them with their education.

Many private schools throughout the state have already begun online classes. Poor students of government schools are far behind as they have been under lockdown since March 2020. The Government of Telangana has announced that schools will resume in online mode from 1st September. But, with no access to smartphones/tabs/laptops, many rural poor children face the risk of being completely left out, giving rise to the frightening possibility of increased school drop-outs, and their engagement as child labor.

Orphans fare worse than other rural school children. COVID-19 has left their families in dire straits. Already struggling to make both ends meet, and with COVID-19 making matters worse, acquiring or dedicating smartphone/s (if there are more than one child in the family) to help children access online classes is a monstrous challenge for the care providers.

Without any tools to access online classes and to life-altering quality education, these marginalized children face the real risk of being left behind, caught up in the cycle of deprivation and poverty.

Please HELP them overcome this challenge. We need your support to help 200 orphans continue their education to break out of poverty and misery.

HOW YOUR CONTRIBUTION WILL HELP
We have identified 200 orphans already enrolled in schools and junior colleges in our program areas in Telangana villages, who don’t have access to smartphones. Your contribution will help us procure 200 smartphones worth Rs. 7500 each, and help these children continue their education by attending online classes from their homes without any interruption.  

TARGET
Rs. 15,00,000 (Smartphones worth Rs. 7,500 each for 200 Orphans)  

Donors contributing Rs. 7,500 or in multiples of 7,500 will receive pictures of the orphan students who have been provided with the smartphones. 

WE ARE ALSO COLLECTING OLD SMARTPHONES
Please ensure that the donated phone/laptop/tablet is in a working condition and the battery still works. Please package it carefully along with the charging cable, and send it to us by speed post or courier. Thanks for caring.

Please send the devices to:
Bala Vikasa Social Service Society

Kazipet, Warangal - 506 004Telangana, India

ABOUT BALA VIKASA'S ORPHAN SOLIDARITY PROGRAM 

Rural Poor women who are beneficiaries of our Women Development program identified 1,600 orphans in their villages. They are giving the children maternal love and care, and also pooling their savings to support the education of orphans. To strengthen this noble initiative, we began the Orphan Solidarity Project to help the orphans (who we call Vikasa Children) lead a decent life and pursue opportunities in quality education in schools and colleges.
