Every ₹6,000 will fund one girl's education kit.
This fundraiser has raised enough to fund 5 education kits.
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.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.
Avasar is helping us to continue our education by providing scholarship and all necessities. They are conducting many workshops on personality development and spoken English.
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.
We raised ₹33,510 and were able to purchase two sets of clothing materials for 35 girls. We distributed them during our annual Joy of Giving Week in October. Providing the clothing materials significantly cuts miscellaneous education-related expenses for the girls' families, and is a way to ensure the girls continue their education.
As 3rd Year B.Com student Sandhya says, "My family need not spend a lot for my education now. If I didn’t get this support, I might have discontinued my education."
