Many people are interested in giving back to the community they live in, but they may not have an idea from where to start. Many are concerned that their donation may not go to the proper person who is in need. Many will not get time to contribute for social service even though they have kind heart. Even, iam one of those, i want to donate money only if iam 100% sure that it will go to the needy and not to someone else.
As part of a community involvement program from our organization, i came across an NGO called 'Kriti', which is in Tolichowki, Hyderabad. Basically, that NGO concentrates on educating children, improving awareness on cleanliness and economic independence for women in slum areas. Met many women who regularly come to that NGO to learn stitching, embroidery and make excellent handi crafts, which will be marketed and sold by NGO. These women will also get paid for their work. NGO collects donation from interested people and sponsor education for the children of these woman. This NGO contacts different schools to admit these children and also talks to Principals and teachers regularly about their progress. If children continuously fail, they are counselled to know the reason behind it. As i personally met and understood all these details, iam satisfied of the good work they do.
Here are the details, if anyone of you are interested in sponsoring a child's education. The minimum amount for sponsoring one child is 7200/- per year. Complete amount to be paid at once. This amount is the average fees among all the schools in the area across all classes.
