Sponsor a Child!

What is the Sponsor a Child for Education Program? SCEP

Schools for India is adopting various schools in rural India, to provide quality education and better infrastructure.

We are supporting schools run by Charitable organizations who charge very minimal fees.

Most of the students come from marginalized communities and they are not able to pay even the basic tuition fees.

This create a very difficult situation for the school management in providing salaries, maintain the infrastructure and upgrade class rooms.

As having qualified teachers is the key for providing quality education, it is imperative that the school provides decent salaries to these teachers.

As the fund raising is becoming increasingly difficult and costly, Schools for India has come up with an innovative concept of private individuals, sponsoring a specific child in a particular school, and the sponsorship shall cover the tuition fees, supporting specialised faculty, infrastructure upgrade, and school maintenance

Selection of a School:

How do you select a School for partnership?

Schools for India, evaluates schools run by reputed charitable organisation, who are running a school for many years successfully, but need support to upgrade the school infrastructure but unable to charge more fees, as the students are unable to pay.

Schools for India, signs an MoU, with the selected organization and starts the process of identifying the students who deserve to be supported.
