Sponsoring a Child’s Education

ngo-donate-child-education

Sponsor a Child’s Education is a program run by iCFDR with its supported school, Satyawati School, in rural Budaun District, UP. In India, where it is said that 9 out of 10 students don’t complete college, we are creating a platform to enable them to attain an education. Through this initiative we are inviting supporters who are willing to contribute towards the education of poor and underprivileged children in rural India being taught at our school. This program will allow you to share the financial responsibility and minimal necessities that a child requires but are not fortunate to have like their urban counterparts.

At iCFDR we believe that education can transform a child’s life which in turn can help transform the entire society. Your donation would help us in supporting a child’s education by donating a small amount per year which will go towards the child’s yearly tuition fee, books, clothing, other basic educational necessities that they could use towards their educational needs.

To maintain full disclosure and transparency about your donations we would like to mention that we will reserve 9% of your donation for other social work activities and iCFDR operations, and the rest of your funds which is 91% would go directly to child’s educational requirements of that child.

At this time we have two options of donating amounts available for you towards this program:

  • We require a minimum of Rs. 5500 per year in order to sponsor a child’s full educational requirements for that given year. Continue reading
  • iMalert: Health Awareness Messages for Rural Masses

     

    iCFDR plans to launch health awareness campaign “iMalert” for mostly rural public, sending health-awarenss SMSes. This campaign in initial phase from 25th October, would target 5,000 mostly rural people directly, that is almost 5000 families indirectly and then in second phase we want to target 10,000 individuals.

    The iMalert message would cover various issues like hypertension, diabetes, importance of balance diet and a healthy and disease free lifestyle.We would also make them aware about infectious, communicable diseases and chronic conditions like HIV, AIDS, diabetes etc. And focus on personal hygiene, cleanliness, prenatal care, birthing information, Sexual and Reproductive health, Maternal Health and female and child issues.

    The target group would include rural and semi-urban population, patients, medical students, healthcare providers and educated masses. We would promote physical activity, target alcohol abuse and tobacco use, and unhealthy diet. This will help rural areas to raise awareness that they can learn to prevent, diagnose on time and manage the diseases. As sometimes lack of financial means is not the only challenge, but a lack of awareness and knowledge is.

    iCFDR would try convincing people if they are diagnosed with condition like diabetes they must adhere to treatment, as most people do not adhere to treatment or lifestyle a factor attributed to poor health education. This may increase access to training, education and raise awareness on the issues of health so that they learn to better prevent, diagnose and manage the diseases.

    We are in process of raising funds to implement the campaign. … Continue reading
