The same price as a scoop of ice cream
0.80 > 0.80 Euro a day is sufficient to enable a child from the stone quarries of the Indian town of Yeleswaram to go to school. For that price, a Central European can buy a scoop of ice cream or a whole meal roll. In Andhra Pradesh, wortundtat uses the same amount to fund the school attendance, accommodation, meals as well as the school uniform of a child from a poor family.
Education improves chances
Yeleswaram is known due to its numerous stone quarries. Since our partner AMG set up a school nearby in 1995, especially the children of the hard working poor population living there have at last been given the chance of an education. It enables them to permanently escape the vicious circle of poverty and hard physical work. More and more people recognise the benefits of letting their offspring get an education. And still: many families are lacking the bare essentials and thus cannot afford school fees, school uniform and educational material.
School must be affordable
The class sponsorships of wortundtat shall help to make school attendance for children from poorer backgrounds affordable. 80 Eurocent per day is enough to pay for a child’s place at school, a warm meal, clothing and educational material as well as a place at boarding school, if required.
You would like to know more? Please read about our class sponsorships for the school at the stone quarry in Yeleswaram here.
You would like to support this project on a regular basis? Many people have already adopted such a class sponsorship and support us regularly with a fixed amount. By paying 24 Euro per month (previously 18 Euro), you too can ensure a place at school for a new child.
You do not want to make a monthly commitment or maybe you want donate a smaller amount? The poor are grateful for any donation, however small.
