Educate poor children in an integrated school

Impact

Every monthly donation helps more children like Mala go to school

Having lost her father at a very young age, 6-year-old Mala belonged to a single parent family. Her mother rolled beedis to eke a living. With a very low-income, she found it very hard to make ends meet. She did not have enough resources to provide her child with a quality education.

She then approached Amar Seva Sangam. Mala was admitted to the Siva Saraswathi Vidyalaya (SSV) run by Amar Seva Sangam. She was given free education, uniforms, study materials and personal attention.

Mala is now in Class 5. She works hard and usually stands first in class. She has a lot of dreams that she aims to achieve. Give children like Mala a chance to achieve their dreams.

Program Description

Siva Saraswathi Vidyalaya (SSV), is a model school which tries to bring together differently-abled students and regular students in the same classroom to provide them with a holistic education. The environment is directed towards inculcating in regular students an appreciation and understanding of the differently abled children and vice versa.

Assistance is determined by the economic situation of the children's families. Along with education, they are given training in sports, music, elocution, debates, essay writing etc. Students of SSV have won many prizes in various district and state level competitions. SSV uses sponsorship received from donors to provide basic facilities like uniforms, study materials etc. for students. There are over 650 children studying in the school.

Donations made to this program support the salaries, electricity, and for procurement of material for the school. When you donate to the program, two underprivileged children studying in Siva Saraswathi Vidyalaya secure their education.
