Thanks for helping us support children in need.
Where does your money go?
Under project Vishesh where we pay a stipend to the families of children we support. This is to cover costs for critical needs that will ensure the child has a safe environment conducive to study. These requirements are specific to each child for e.g. we are currently paying stipends for a disabled child’s family so that his mother can afford to work less and use that time to help him at school (where he needs physical support); for a family of brothers so that they don’t have to work at odd paint jobs (in toxic conditions) to supplement their grandmothers meager earnings; for hostels for at risk girls etc. Funds are directly paid to the child’s family/guardians.
How much does each child need?
The amount each child needs depends on their unique situation and is decided on a case by case basis. These are typically anywhere from $200 to $600 annually per child.
Who needs funding and how can you keep track of their progress and your donations?
Our Vishesh page outlines the program, and provides the background and needs of each of the students supported under it. To protect privacy of the child, we have minimal information posted here. For donors, we can provide more detailed information and updates on their progress, records of each disbursement and also arrange for some communication with the child (under supervision and guidance of a team member), if desired.
Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more specific information, we’re happy to talk to you.
