    Rural Children

    from Mumbai, Maharashtra

The pandemic has disrupted the lives of many students across India, especially those living in rural areas. With schools being shut down due to the lockdown and no access to electronic devices, children from rural areas are losing out on education opportunities. Most children in rural areas come from lower-middle-class families that are not even able to afford basic study materials, let alone smartphones or tablets to study online. In this era of online education, these children are left far behind due to their unfortunate circumstances. Due to the lack of schooling, very few children from rural areas are able to make successful careers and pull themselves out of the clutches of poverty. One of the main reasons for this being - poor or no education.

Now, COVID is also a barrier to education opportunities for these children.

We have long been neglecting the very present rural population of India, but it’s time to shoulder our responsibility and reach out to them.

Step up and help children from rural areas get access to learning opportunities and break out of the vicious cycle of being illiterate and underprivileged.

How will your donation help?

Even though there has been an increase in the number of students, unfortunately, there has not been much of an increase in the financial resources that children from rural areas have received. Through your donation, we will be helping children from rural areas get:

-Stationery for the children
-Study books (books for students from Grade 1-12)
-Stationery for the children
-Computer Tablets
-Internet data packs for 3 months

We are also working on sending over electronic devices (smartphones and tablets) so that children from rural areas do not miss out on the entire year’s education due to the current pandemic.

Let’s virtually join hands to bring forth better opportunities for the children of rural India.

Your support and help can change the lives of hundreds of children from rural India. Think of the difference you can make to these children’s lives. We urge you to come forward and support as many children as you can. Any amount, however large or small, will be highly appreciated.

Indicative costs are:

Text books: 250* 300= Rs. 75,000/-
Note books: 80 * 600 = Rs. 48,000/-
Stationery: Average cost per box 100* 200= Rs. 20,000/-
Computer Tablet: 3000 * 100 = Rs. 3,00,000/-
Data pack for 3 months: 599* 100 = 59,900/-

Everyone is born with a desire to learn, they only need the chance to learn – we can give them this chance, together.

Your support matters to us and them!
