Stationery for ragpickers' kids

Focus: Children and Youth, Education

3% Funded
EDUCATION is the best bet in breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty faced by families living off waste. Fund school kits for ₹389 each so their children have the tools to attend and stay in school.

According to the Child Labour Act 1986, ragpicking is among the most hazardous banned occupations, yet UNICEF reports that one of the main child labour activities in India is collecting waste.

Ragpickers rarely have the financial means to send their children to school, and instead enter them into ragpicking too. To counter this, Tiljala SHED sponsor their education - and need help funding school bags and stationery.

All it takes is a little bit from everyone!

Fundraiser Timeline

Every ₹389 will cover the costs of one school kit. Help make their learning joyful!

This fundraiser has been extended until the end of the month. Support this cause so ragpickers' kids can have new stationery as they welcome in the New Year!


Poverty often deters parents from investing in their children's education, especially in things like school materials with recurring costs. Not being able to afford a new school bag and basic stationery at the start of an academic year can hinder a child's productivity and learning experience. New school kits provide young students the proper tools to learn with joy and dignity.

New bags and stationery will significantly improve a child's learning experience

Each school kit @ ₹389 will include a school bag, geometry box, three pencils, eraser, sharpener, three notebooks, colouring book and a box of crayons. Based on the amount raised, Donatekart will procure the corresponding number of school kits and deliver them to Tiljala SHED within a week of getting the order confirmation and will be distributed to the children as per their needs.

With your help, 500 children can receive a new school kit
