For children in need, Sairam Foundation helps with the education and development of children from poor families in Nepal (and India). This is for families that do not have enough income to finance the education of their children.
The focus of the project mainly lies on children of elementary/nursery schools, the basic education for very young children. The focus is also drifting towards high school bit by bit, because we do not want to abandon the sponsored children after elementary school. We look at the next step. We also support the high-school students to reach their unique ability, their talent, like singing or music.
We aim to connect as many children of these as possible to a sponsor. Thanks to the sponsors, the children go to school and have additional classes in Human Values (development of the character/personality).
Alone or together with others, you can monthly sponsor one or more children as long as you want. Since August 25th, 2012, we found many sponsors for school-fees of children. The list of sponsors can be seen below.
Contact us to become a sponsor of a child. To manage the sponsoring for the children, we have thoughtfully chosen and appointed local ambitious Nepalese and Indian students and other volunteers as coordinators and supervisors. Their tasks are mainly; keeping in touch with the sponsored children and their families, supporting the families involved, following the development of the children and reporting to SRF regularly.
59 of 64 children are already sponsored. For the other children, we are still looking for sponsors.
