Help Us Educate Children From Rural India During COVID-19

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.

About UDGAM

UDGAM is an NGO that works for the welfare of children residing in the rural pockets of Roorkee, Uttar Pradesh. Having known and spoken to Shivam (Founder of UDGAM) years ago and seeing this NGO going from 21 students to now having over 500+ kids has been extremely inspiring. UDGAM stands for educating children and eradicating illiteracy from rural India by providing children with easy access to education.

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 UDGAM has received. Through your donation, we will be helping UDGAM get:

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

We are also working on sending over electronic devices (smartphones and tablets) to UDGAM so that children from the 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/-
