Impact statement

Education narrates a country’s well being. Aristotle said ages ago, "[t]he educated differ from the uneducated as much as the living from the dead." So a country like Nepal, where 1 out of 3 males and 2 out of 3 females are illiterate, is unwell.  However, the essence of education has been growing in the country in the recent past, thanks to the National and International non-profit organizations. Ganga Ghar is a corollary of the dismal situation in the field of education in Nepal. Ganga Ghar was founded in October 2009 with the mission to improve the lives of impoverished children in the country by sponsoring for their education and other fundamental needs (stationaries, clothes, food etc.). It has since devoted its services to encourage parents to admit their children into school and not to pull out for not being able to afford their children’s education. Ganga Ghar Started its benevolent act with just 5 children. Today the number has grown to 70 children across the country. There has been no looking back since the foundation. Parents are relieved and exuberant to see their kids go to school and the children themselves are the happiest to be learning how to read and write. The feat has resulted in a sense of gratification among the seniors in the villages, who cannot read or write themselves. This kind of response has lifted the enthusiasm of the committee members of Ganga Ghar who are working day in, day out to expand the services to more underprivileged children.

Program 1

One to One Sponsorship

This program creates a one-to-one direct relationship between sponsors and children. A sponsor selects a specific child and sponsors that child's tuition, education supplies, school uniforms and other necessities to attend school. This program will also assist children and their family with adequate nutrition.The organization facilitates communication between sponsors and their children. The organization will update sponsors with attendance and progress reports of the students.  It will also help the sponsors and children to correspond with each other.
One-to-one sponsorship is what makes Ganga Ghar a unique organization.  Sponsorship is not an anonymous gift to an unknown recipient or group.  Sponsors know exactly where their dollars are being spent and can witness the progress of their specific student -- a direct benefit of their kindness.
