WHY DONATE FOR EDUCATION?
Uneducated children are helpless and will remain so. Children want to help themselves. They only need a chance. If you donate for education you give back what you once received: A chance.
WHAT PROJECT ARE YOU HELPING?
The Barefoot College project provides access to education to the children of migratory labourers who belong to the lowest caste of untouchables in Rajasthan, India. They are the first of their generation to attend school. A one year course at the Bridge Residential School provides them with the possibility of joining a state school and hence a chance to live autonomous and self-determined lives.
WHAT IMPACT WILL YOUR DONATION HAVE?
Your donation will finance a seat for a child in the Bridge Residential School and give it a chance to lead a self-determined life. Just 2 EUR will ensure that a child is provided with lessons, meals and accommodation for a day.
WHAT IS OUR VISION WITH THE PROJECT?
In the future we would like to sponsor as many as 500 children at the residential school. As a first step, 50 additional children will be taken on in the new school year. Donate now so that these children can step out of poverty and illiteracy and have sustainable future prospects.
WHO WE ARE?
Friends-for-Hope is a charitable organisation, which supports selected projects locally with great diligence. The Barefoot College mentioned here has been ranked among the top 18 NGOs worldwide since 2012. As we bear all our administrative costs, your donations will benefit only the project.
To enroll 50 children at the Bridge Residential School for 1 year, we need 35,000 EUR
