“Help A Child” currently works in Northern Karnataka and Maharashtra in the districts of Bagalkot, Belgaum, Satara, Ahmednagar, Mumbai and Pune.
“Help A Child” offers sponsorship to students from underprivileged backgrounds who have scored highly in their studies. For girls the minimum percentage required is 70% while for boys it is 75%. Sponsorship covers a student’s college fees, allowing them to realize their dream of further education. Students from any course above the 10th grade are eligible to apply.
Many of our students come from extremely poor families where the main income earner is a small-scale farmer, weaver or labourer. Some students belong to single parent families due to either death or abandonment and often work part time to help their families survive. Despite these insurmountable odds they have shown an ability and a will to succeed as well as a talent that should not be wasted simply because their family does not have the financial resources to help them continue.
Once the student has been paired with a donor, and the amount of their course fees donated, the money is disbursed in stages throughout the year. Cheques are given several times a year depending upon the course needs and receipts are jointly signed by the student and college principal to encourage their participation in the scholarship scheme.
Students sponsored under the scheme are required to send progress reports every 3 months in order to receive their next cheque installment. Sponsors can send letters to and receive them from their students, they also receive academic updates twice a year.
