Sponsor a poor girl child's school supplies and toiletries


14-year-old Ranjitha studies in grade 9, in the Government High School in Thirumayam village. She lives with her mother and a brother. Her father passed away when she was an infant. Her mother works as a coolie to earn for the family. Despite her relatives' suggestion to send Ranjitha for doing household work to earn a little extra for the family, Ranjitha's mother struggled to continue her daughter's education.

It became possible with CARD's help. They provided Ranjitha with two sets of uniforms, two pairs of footwear, soap, oil, paste, brush, comb, nail cutter and other educational aid. Ranjitha now happily goes to school and makes sure to keep her uniform clean. This also helped Ranjitha's family to use their scarce resources for other needs of the family.

Program Description

Community Action for Rural Development (CARD) has several initiatives in various parts of the country. This programme is implemented by CARD in Government-run high schools in Lembalakudi village of Pudukkottai district to increase enrollment of girl children in high school.

The aim of this programme is to motivate the economically backward parents to send their girl children to school for higher education. A list of potential beneficiaries is prepared in advance with the help of teachers. The donations help the children meet basic requirements for high school education. This reduces the economic burden on the parents.

A tailor is also sent to school to take measurements for stitching children's uniforms. The material is purchased by CARD and presented to the beneficiaries in the presence of the Head Master and class teachers.
