Project: Educate A Child


Promoting and encouraging child education by supporting needy children who are willing to study.

About the Project

Sakshum started Educate A Child project in the year 2008 by supporting 3 children for the complete educational expenses from St. Isaac School, Hafeezpet, Hyderabad, AP, India

We usually find these children from the schools where we conduct our 'Eye Care I Care' project activities. Whenever team Sakshum visits a school they enquire with the school authorities about the children who are good at studies and need financial support to carry on their education. Based on the information provided to us we screen the children details and verify the authenticity of the case. Those who are found in genuine need of someone to bear educational expenses are uploaded to our 'Children Profile'' page.

Team Sakshum then look for people who can adopt these children educationally. Those who are willing to sponsor are introduced to the school and to the children. We usually emphasis the sponsor to pay the fees etc personally to the school on monthly basis. Though for exceptional cases like person is living quite far or cannot visit every month, team Sakshum takes the responsibility for depositing the fee on regular basis and keeping track of the progress of the children.

Mission: Our mission is to become an efficient channel between children who are in need and willing sponsors so that maximum number of children can be benefited from our efforts.
