Educate 40 Dalit girls

Summary

For $4,000 we can add 40 girls to our child sponsorship programme immediately. Our sponsorship programme is quite unique as we open a bank account for every child and this account is managed by the child's mother. This teaches the mother how to manage money. When we add a child to the programme, the mother also joins our self-help group programme. She will benefit from our micro finance programme so she can purchase a cow or a sewing machine to generate much-needed income for the family

Challenge

Children are taken out of school at an early age as the family may need to move to a city for work. They will sleep rough on the streets and bring the children to a building site to hang around all day while the mother and father work. By providing them with regular income through our sponsorship programme this will generally discourage the family from doing this. The money which is transferred every month into the account is equivalent to 4 days work by the mother in the fields.

Solution

Family will receive regular income for the child's education. The mother will join our mothers self-help group. Eventually she will receive a loan to buy a cow and this will significantly raise the family's income for many years.

Long-Term Impact

Education is the key to rising above the poverty line.
