About the NGO
And that 40 per cent of minor girls are forced into prostitution EVERY DAY… is another.
So instead of reinventing the wheel, iPartner have identified causes and projects they want to support, and then make sure they keep the wheel of human development – and hope – turning.
The life of Bhagyalaxmi, for instance, has been changed with their intervention. She is one among a dozen bright girls from poor families in the care of Mangalore-based orphanage Bhagini Samaj, whose higher education iPartner India have sponsored.
Now the 18-year-old, who secured 89 per cent in her 10th standard board exams, is in the second year of college. Bhagyalaxmi says: “Growing up with a single parent was very difficult. I have seen my mother struggle to feed and educate us. I want to study hard, find a good job and buy a house for my mother some day.”
The statistic that iPartner are bowling against in this case is that in rural India, girls on average spend less than fours years in education.
Another vulnerable group in their radar is the country’s underserved population in villages, especially in terms of affordable healthcare. Thanks to their support to Ankur, an organisation in Himachal Pradesh, more than 100,000 mothers, children and senior citizens have access to basic healthcare.
iPartner have identified over 100 frontline organisations, like Ankur, who practise what iPartner promote – that is improving the lives of the poor and excluded, especially vulnerable children and women.
This ‘support’ approach, not only with funding but also with helping their partner NGOs to scale their operations for greater impact, has proved successful.
Since inception, iPartner have improved the lives of 36,000 disadvantaged Indians, just a drop in the ocean considering their vision of a just and equitable India.
But with perseverance and ‘support’ from people like you, that drop could become an ocean.
