To achieve our mission of making children self-reliant and therefore happy and good citizens, we are constantly seeking helping hands!!
We look forward to many more volunteers joining hands with us; and welcome people from different walks of life to participate in the growth and development of the children.
We are keen to engage with like minded organisations, individuals (e.g., ComputerShiksha and IndiaESchool which we associate with), both formal or informal – to leverage their core competencies for the development of our children!
- CSR support:
As a school that is run by a Charitable Trust, we always welcome and look forward to CSR support from Corporates; who are keen to engage& invest in education as a cause!
- Sponsoring a child while they are at Saksham:
You could help sponsor a child’s annual education for Rs.12,000 a year. This is the annual cost that we incur on one child.
- Sponsoring higher education:
We provide continued Support to children who have moved on or will be moving from our school to regular schools. You could choose to sponsor one such (ranges from 50,000 – 80,000 pa – details can be provided on request). You may choose to pay as we go, or in lumpsum or in instalments.
- Sponsoring a meal:
The school provides an in-house mid-day meal. Rs. 5,000/- could sponsor a day’s meal for all the children.
- Sponsoring transport:
We sincerely wish to augment our current transport facility, and would heartily welcome any help towards this cause. As of now, we spend about Rs.40,000/- per month.
- Sponsoring Vocational Training:
At Saksham, we have always believed in augmenting the children’s skill set by providing them vocational skills – carpentry, tailoring, paper-bag making, pottery being some of them. The cost of imparting a skill varies from Rs.3,000/- to Rs. 6,000 per month. You could choose to sponsor a skill, which would cover faculty fee and basic material costs,
- Sponsoring extra-curricular training:
In order to augment academic skills, we would encourage learning Music, Dance, Drama and Martial Arts alongwith the regular curriculum. Any help towards either supporting an activity at approximately Rs.5000 a month or by providing your time towards conducting these classes would be very welcome.
