Sponsor a child's education
With our support, the Sri Ramana Maharshi Matriculation Higher Secondary School opened its doors in 1994. Each year, the school enables over 1000 local children to receive a quality education while remaining in their village homes. It accepts children from grades 1 to 12.
From the very beginning of their school experience, students learn values of equality and respect for one another - regardless of caste, religion or family income.
What does sponsoring a child involve?
Each sponsor is asked to donate $420 yearly (or $35/month) for each sponsored child. We ask that you commit to support your child for a period of 10 years.
What does my sponsorship donation cover? It provides:
In cases of illness or unemployment at home - situations which typically would end schooling for poor village children - we provide extra support to the family.
How will I know how my child is doing?
Our program coordinator visits the school each year to follow the progress of every sponsored child. She will send you a brief school report and photographs once a year.
You may also write to your child, although this is not required. If you do choose to send a letter, your child will write back. Many sponsors find it a joy to keep in touch in this way: it brings their sponsored child more closely into their own family circle.
