Providing a college education for €17 / $21 a month
Amcha Ghar School provides primary and secundary education for children. To read more about our school and about the school system in India, check out our Amcha Ghar School page!
After graduating the 10th standard, children in India are expected to do two years of junior college to finish their secundary education. After junior college, they can find decent jobs, follow higher education or both.
However, with a tuition fee of about €200,- / $245,-, college is not an option for a lot of families in rural areas. Amcha Ghar wants to change this, but we need your help. Together, we can make a college diploma possible for every child, regardless of their background or sex!
Who will I sponsor?
We need sponsors for three groups of children.
The first group is Amcha Ghar orphans: girls who live in our home without any outside relatives to depend on. It is our responsibility to raise them to be educated, independent women.
We also provide scholarships for former Amcha Ghar girls. In some cases, families of the girls in the home can be rehabilitated into a stable and hygienic environment and the girls are reunited with them after 10th standard. Amcha Ghar financially helps these families in one way only: we provide college tuition. We make sure that the tuition fee goes straight to the college.
Finally, it is our aim to provide scholarships for Amcha Ghar School pupils as possible. For most kids, offering them basic education is enough to change their future for the better. To further a educational and cultural shift in the region however, it is necessary to provide our bright pupils with the opportunity to go to college in order to develop the entire community.
When you sponsor the college fee of a child, we will update you on the life and studies of your beneficiary. You will receive information, personal messages of your beneficiary and photographs at least twice a year; at the end of the first semester in december and at the end of term in march.
The college schoolyear begins halfway july. When you make your first contribution, we will send you a welcome package with information about Amcha Ghar and, more importantly, the high school child who can go to college due to your help! We will also let you know when he/she has started her college studies!
