The Sponsor A Child program aims to provide educational opportunities to children from financially challenged backgrounds. To be eligible for the program, families should meet the following criteria:
  • Income Requirement: The annual income of the family should be equal to or less than 3 lakhs per annum.
  • Family Situations:
    • Single Parent: Families with a single parent due to the unfortunate circumstance of both parents having passed away. The child should be staying with the surviving parent or guardian or extended family.
    • Divorced or Separated Mother: Families where the mother is divorced or separated and is the primary caretaker of the child.
    • Terminal Illness or Major Health Care Expenses: Families facing the financial burden of a family member's terminal illness or significant health care expenses such as heart operations or dialysis.
    • Permanent Disability: Families coping with the challenges of permanent disability resulting from accidents.

These criteria ensure that the program reaches those children and families who are most in need of educational support due to challenging financial circumstances and unique family situations. By providing opportunities for education, the Sponsor A Child program aims to break the cycle of poverty and empower these children to create a better future for themselves and their communities.
