Neev Rural Kids Sponsorship Program 2011 - 12


Published on

Dear Friends,

With this mail, I am formally launching the Rural Kids Sponsorship Program for the academic year 2012-13. I have attached with this mail, a progress report of the sponsorship program that we launched last year. 60 kids were enrolled through last year’s program. This year we have a target of enrolling 100 Rural Kids in the sponsorship program. Quite a few of these children were tribal children whose parents could have never thought of providing their children an English medium education.

I would like to thank all the donors who made this possible last year.

At NEEV, we have decided to make the Rural Kids Adoption Program our flagship program; having worked across sectors we have seen that it is through education that we can create the most profound and creative impact on the individual, society and the earth in varying levels and dimensions. Last year’s program showed us the unexplored latent potential in kids that have been marginalized by the society.

NEEV is perhaps one of the few organizations – the only one in Jamshedpur at least – to provide an English Medium Education to marginalized children. Of course now, with the coming of RTE private schools have been mandated to allot 25% seats to Below poverty Line students. Despite this, the situation remains grim. Our presentation shows that only 47% of females and 72% of males are literate in East Singhbhum Dist. Last year too we had to turn away several children because of lack of sponsors.

I request you all to please go through the presentations, then, perhaps to make up your mind to sponsor (adopt) a rural kid or some rural kids. The total cost we had calculated for the sponsoring of a kid last year was Rs. 5,400 but that actually was a very scaled down amount. It did not account for their tuition fees and the expenses incurred for other facilities provided at school. The actual amount for sponsoring a kid (which includes their uniform, books & copies, auto fare and their tuition fees) comes out to Rs. 11,500/annum or Rs. 958/month. This is approximately still less than half of what one would spend for a child in other English Medium Schools.

For some, an amount of Rs. 11,500 may seem forbidding so we have created an option to have a child sponsored through 2 donors. This would mean that you could decide to sponsor half of the amount for one child (Rs. 5750), while the other half would be shared by another donor. The aim is to make our program friendly for as wide a donor base as possible.

Anyone of our friends who is interested in sponsoring a child is requested to write to me and we shall then be sending a sponsorship form with the details of the sponsored child. I request that we do this as early as possible, say, by the second week of February so that we have the time to do the large amount of processing work for admissions.

I also humbly request all of you to enlist more of your friends into this program.
