Gift a child a chance at education - Single donation, INR 100

Asha Kiran runs an education initiative for the coastal and kolleru lake villages near Machilipatnam. They focus on providing education supplies to children from economically backward families. A BPL survey found that the percentage of school dropouts is high among the orphan and semi-orphan children due to the caretakers’ poverty.
How it Works

• The Asha Kiran team visits the schools in these villages and interacts with the school authorities, education committee and village development committees.
• They identify and list the orphan children or children with single parent that come from poor economic backgrounds.
• During their interactions, the volunteers discovered that some of the orphan and semi orphan children (9 - 15 years) are made to discontinue their studies for getting income from rag picking and fishing activities.
• The NGOs helps in rescuing these children from child labor and enables them to continue with their education by providing education support.
• The donations are also used to provide uniforms, school bags, rice and provisions to these children at any time during the year.
