What we aim to solve

There are millions of underprivileged children in India who are still struggling to get basic education. We are working at the ground level to identify such children and help them financially so that they can read, write and many of them can even go for higher education at the college level to get professional degrees.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Identify underprivileged children in India and provide the financial help.

We provide financial help via recurring payments in the form of scholarships. Children can download application forms from our website and email us a completed application form. Our board reviews all the applications and recommends an appropriate amount to be disbursed. Alternatively we also work directly with many schools and organizations in India to identify such children in bulk and provide financial assistance.

We are a volunteer run organization. Everyone works towards our goal without any pay. We have zero overhead and our board is very committed towards the mission of the organization.

We receive feed back from children that we are helping. We receive report cards from them to see their progress over time and renew scholarships.

We have helped hundreds of children and the effort goes on.
