A microproject by Snehalaya 'Home of Love'
Illuminate an Indian girl's life

Summary

This Diwali let's light the lamp of hope for our girls through educational support. Many of our older girls are already pursuing degrees in naturopathy, mechanical engineering and bedside nursing. Help us fund more through their higher education choices. Empower and help sustain them through the ups and downs of life and assure them brighter futures. Join us to celebrate the happiness of giving: "A heart that gives, gathers joy"

Challenge

11 October is International Day of the Girl Child which coincides with the run up to India's Diwali season. We want the girls we work with to be happy, independent, confident and educated. Often higher education studies require an exorbitant amount of money, which is not affordable to all. This excludes many girls who drop out before completing their studies. With financial support, these girls will complete their education and be models for others to follow.

Solution

This Giving week we want to assure good quality education and bright future to each and every one of our girls. With your donation, you can light up a life through continued education to fight against the darkness of servitude, slavery, violence and illiteracy. Your precious support will pay the education fees and support costs which will go a long way in ensuring that one less girl child drops out of school, lives in a safe and nurturing environment and achieves her full potential.

Long-Term Impact

We educate around 1,000 girls each year, fully financing at least 25 young people through college to give them financial independence, choice and security which will ultimately help in breaking the cycle of poverty. In our district, where HIV is prevalent, girls' education also improves family health - educated mothers are 50% percent more likely to immunize their child and administer medication properly, meaning 50% more children survive beyond age 5.
