Raising Donations to Support School Children
Why should you donate?
About 40% of India’s Population is children who are below the age of 18 years, while less than half of the children go to school. Furthermore, only a third of the children reach to Grade 8, leading to children dropping out of schools becoming common. This is mainly due to their limited financial means, lack of access to school materials & parents indifference towards education.
While the idea of the distribution of a school kit might seem trivial and insignificant to many, but the benefits of this simple gesture go a long way, like:-
- Instils a sense of attending a formal institution for education.
- Reduces the drop-out rates.
- Access to books and stationery develops interest and engages children in learning various subjects.
- Helps the parents become more serious about their child’s education due to its formalisation.
