What’s this about?

Educate India is Asha for Education Silicon Valley’s fundraiser for 2018. Each year, people from around the world come together in a demonstration of great human spirit, to help educate underprivileged children in India. Educate India presents select projects that help educate children of migrant labors to children with special needs . These projects, run by grassroots non-profits in India and supported through your donation, strive to bring a positive change in the lives of thousands of children.

PROJECTS

DOOR STEP SCHOOL

pune, maharashtra

Doorstep School (DSS) provides education and support to the often-forgotten children of pavement dwellers, slum dwellers, construction site families and many other underprivileged families. Many of these children are not enrolled in school and have limited access to books and a place to study. DSS is trying to bridge this gap by bringing education to the “Doorstep” of these underprivileged children.

Puvidham

Dharmapuri, Tamil Nadu

The mission of Puvidham is to impart education to government school drop outs and children from the National Child Labour Prevention Program. Many of these kids have been unable to cope with the pressures of formal schooling. With some help, these kids can be helped back into regular schools after Class VIII. The project supports more than 100 children who are from the impoverished communities in the area.

Samerth Talim Kendra

Ahmedabad, Gujarat

Samerth Talim Kendra aims to provide support and services to the mentally and physically challenged children and their families. The children are from poor and marginalized sections of the society. Learning is supported by everyday therapies to help them in their growth. Vocational training is imparted to help them lead an independent life. Samerth also create awareness regarding disability in the community, encourage early detection and dispel myths associated with it.
