Child Sponsorship is a unique and personal way for you to make a difference in the lives of children.

You can help break the cycle of poverty and begin a cycle of progress for children, their families and their entire community and see the difference you are making in their lives first-hand! By just donating Rs 750 for a month, your charitable donations will provide essentials like education, healthcare, clean water, sanitation, and livelihood opportunities so children can have a brighter future.

With Child Sponsorship, you can build a personal connection with a child in a developing country who lives in a community that needs your help. You’ll see the difference you are making through letter writing, annual updates and the opportunity to visit your sponsored child.

The “Sponsor a Child” program enables sponsors to form a connection with a specific child. The child receives the financial support it needs to develop personally and academically. As a sponsor, you can follow the progress of your child and see how your contribution positively influences his or her development. We also encourage you to stay in touch with your child, to become a role model and influence the progress of him or her directly.

WHO IS BENEFITING

The “Sponsor a Child” children come from various backgrounds. Our children either had little or no education, grew up in broken families, worked as rag-pickers and labourers or were drug addicted. Without our support these children would have to return into dysfunctional families or even go back to the streets where they would be exposed to violence, prostitution networks and disease. With your donation we can continue our work and ensure that the children stay protected from their past.

Despite the Right to Education (RTE) Act coming into force in 2010, access toeducation for every child remains a huge concern in the country. The following are statistics that portray the seriousness of the situation:

1.1 in 4 children of school-going age is out of school in our country – 99 million children in total have dropped out of school (Census 2011).
2. Out of every 100 children, only 32 children finish their school education age-appropriately (District Information System for Education (DISE) 2014-15)
3. Only 2% of the schools offer complete school education from Class 1 to Class 12 (District Information System for Education (DISE) 2014-15)
4. There are 10.13 million child labourers between 5-14 years in India (Census 2011)
5. India has 33 million working children between the ages of 5-18 years. In parts of the country, more than half the child population is engaged in labour (Census 2011)
6. 42% of married women in India were married as children (District Information System for Education (DISE 3)
7. 1 in every 3 child brides in the world is a girl in India (UNICEF)
8. India has more than 45 lakh girls under 15 years of age who are married with children. Out of these, 70% of the girls have 2 children (Census 2011)
Unless these underlying causes are dealt with, the situation for children will not change. Ashaa Foundation, is working at the grassroots level to make sure that children do not have to face these barriers and can fully exercise their right to education.
