Sponsor educational expenses for a poor child

Impact

Little Dilkush is eager to study!

Dilkhush is smart, active and very friendly. He comes from a poor family and lives in a village near the Vatsalya campus. During one of the community mobilisation events, he approached Vatsalya staff to convince his parents to send him to Vatsalya. Vatsalya Shiksha Niketan is delighted to have Dilkhush in their campus. He is always eager to carry out any task assigned to him, watches over the small children even though he himself is barely 8 or 9. He is always neat and tidy and completes his homework on time. During the Independence Day function, Dilkhush very enthusiastically declared that he wants to be a Fauji!

Program Description

The campus, literally in the middle of nowhere, looks like a farm but has a total of 108 students studying there. 80 of these students are day scholars who live about 50 kms from Jaipur in a village called Achrol. There are 28 students who stay on campus. The school has permission to accept children till class 8, and they are trying to get government approval to extend that to Class 10. The entire campus is run through solar power (panels donated by HDFC through GiveIndia in March 2018). They even use a solar cooker to cook their food and also have a biogas plant.

Apart from day scholars and hostelites they also have day boarders who stay back for a couple of hours after school (till 6.00 PM) to finish their homework and participate in all the activities that the residential children participate in. Based on the children's performance, the school decides which children will be their day boarders and which children will remain day scholars based on their performance. They have eight teachers in total. They have started a small English medium section in prep school, but otherwise the rest of the school is Hindi medium and follows Rajasthan Board curriculum.

About The NGO

Vatsalya, Jaipur
Vatsalya, Jaipur Logo
Vatsalya, Jaipur

Vatsalya began its work in 2001 with interventions focused on children. They eventually expanded their activities to other areas where a need was felt. It seemed to be more effective to address a community as a whole. With almost similar resources and a little extra enthusiasm, the organisation was able to accomplish a lot in very little time.

Dr. Hitesh Gupta is a co-founder of Vatsalya and currently designated as CEO of the organisation. He is the key driving force in Vatsalya and involved in healthcare, treatment of HIV/AIDS, vocational training of young people and child rights related projects as researcher, guide and manager. His major responsibility is to run operations of Vatsalya effectively and efficiently to make a difference in the life of the underprivileged population and meet the goals and vision of Vatsalya. He is devoted to the organisation and plays a pivotal role in many projects. He remains in direct touch with beneficiaries and believes that beneficiaries do not need charity, but dignified support.
