Sponsor a Child

Under this plan, you can choose to either contribute to the corpus fund created to sponsor a child or sponsor a child for one year. Through sponsorship donor receives the following:

Sponsor a Teacher

Teachers are the pillars and strength of the school. Excessive dependence on volunteer teachers gives us issues with continuity and regularity. Hence we hope to hire more qualified teachers. We need funds to be able to compensate deserving staff. We propose to create a corpus fund towards ‘teachers’ salaries’ for which we solicit contributions.

Sponsor a Mentor

Our children need awareness and guidance to reach their goals. We request patrons from esteemed organizations and individuals to come forward to offer group and individual mentorship for our students. This will go a long way in boosting their morale and giving them direction.


Our institution is built on the pillars called volunteers. We have been extremely fortunate to attract the right people offering right services. But, there is always a need and room for more. We solicit volunteering in any capacity – teaching, formulating material, sports or activities, dance, music or just spreading love!

Requirement for Stationery

Throughout the academic year, there is always a need for stationery. Our children will be happy to welcome supplies.

We solicit funds to sponsor our students moving into higher education. We guide and support deserving students financially through graduation.
