TO prevent disadvantaged teenage girls from dropping out of school, Avasar provide scholarships to pay institutional fees. But those from very poor families also need funds for education essentials, like books.

By bearing the cost of tuition fees for meritorious young girls living below the poverty line, Avasar address one of the main hurdles they have to cross with regards to continuing their education, particularly once they get to high school.

By providing back-to-school kits at ₹6,000 per girl, this fundraiser will ensure all scholarship recipients have the uniforms, shoes, books, stationery - and the self-esteem - required for academic success.

All it takes is a little bit from everyone!

Fundraiser Timeline

Every ₹6,000 will fund one girl's education kit.

This fundraiser has raised enough to fund 5 education kits.

WHY EDUCATION KITS MATTER

With the cost of essential items required for attending school and college increasing every year, it makes it difficult for the very dedicated girls supported by Avasar to arrange the funds to purchase everything they need. Funding back to school and college kits will not only relieve them of the burden of acquiring the funds, but also improve their self-worth and motivate them to attend classes regularly and learn joyfully.

Education kits will enable the girls to focus on learning.
WHY BENGALURU

Multiple reasons lead adolescent girls in India to eventually leave school permanently. For those from the economically-weaker sections of society, these reasons become even more acute. Even though the girls Avasar support live in a metropolitan city like Bengaluru, it has not helped them escape traditional gender biases that force them out of school, such as early marriage, household chores, sibling care and limitations on mobility.

I’m from a poor background, so it's difficult for me to continue my education. Avasar helped me to continue my studies by providing scholarship and a education kit.

THE PLAN

This fundraiser aims to support 50 girls. Every ₹6,000 raised will ensure one girl will have shoes, books, stationery and uniforms for the new academic year. Once the fundraiser is complete, the items will be purchased from stores, uniforms tailored and the kits distributed to the girls as soon as possible.

The kits will be distributed to 50 meritorious girls.
