Sponsoring a Child’s 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

    Adopting a School

    We are supporting a school in an identified rural area of UP, near town Dataganj of Badaun district.  The school we currently support has minimum infrastructure and facilities around 12 classrooms with around 450 enrolled students and from 6th to 12th. There are 3 labs  rooms and primary school rooms are being built, meagre as it sounds, there is a lot of scope for improvement. The quality of education needs urgent attention and support. We recently added two classroom furniture to the school for kids.

    Hence, we are looking to raise funds to avail resources so that we can meet the needs of the school- infrastructural and organizational, re-train teachers and/or employ ones so they can meet current educational requirements. These funds will also go into the construction of 4 new rooms for primary school. Currently we are working out the strategy to have enough resources to adopt the school fully and implement the plans for the better education. Apart from this long running project, we are also working on 3 sub-projects for the school, namely:
