Becoming a sponsor!
We hope we caught your interest. There are many ways you can help. Support our current projects, become a donor, help us with a donation or join us in becoming a member of the charity organisation.
This is how easy it is: Click on the online registration form and download it. Once you have filled in the form, just sent it via fax or post to us. You will then receive further details.
Another great idea is to place one of our charity cans in your work place. Just contact us via email and we will gladly drop off a charity box.
Even though you may not be able to support us financially, we would be grateful if you would support our vision. Just pass on the message of what we do to others. We are happy to introduce our work and organise information evenings to talk about the organisation.
If both things are not possible, please keep the people in India in mind and encourage a kind and respectful environment which will help everyone.
No matter how you help, we are thankful for everything you do to support the orphans and widows!
Due to organisational reasons, receipts of donations will be sent out at the end of each year.
You can take over a sponsorship today...
Even outside the orphanages there are many orphans, half-orphans and poor children in desperate need of help. With the child sponsorship you pay for the living costs and schooling of one child.
The child sponsorship is 100 Euro per year.
We are urgently looking for sponsorships for slum children.
With the sponsorship of a slum child (60 Euro a year) you pay for a year of schooling. Children living in the slums are not able to afford education and would not learn to read and write without financial support. Without education, they will not able to provide for themselves later on in life.
Please help us to provide education with 60 Euro a year.
many families are currently looking for sponsorships.
Not only orphans but also many families in India are in need of help. With a family sponsorship you can help support families with clothing and food and allow children to attend school. There are many poor families waiting for your help!
The family sponsorship is 240 Euro a year.
Direct debit payments:
- monthly on the 15th of each month
- quarterly on the 15th of February, May, August, November
- Half yearly on the 15th of April and October
- Annually on the 15th of a month
- In the following years on the 15th of April
Sponsorship of further education
Young people with higher education are able to earn an above average income and are therefore able to support other children.
With your sponsorship you support the university degree or the professional training of a young person. Once the education is completed, the young adult is obliged to support a child with its own money. Therefore, you do not only support the student but you also give future opportunities to another poor child.
The cost of a sponsorship for higher education/university is 600 euro a year.
There is also the chance to support the university education of a student through a partial sponsorship.
This costs 200 Euro a year.
Sponsorship of children’s villages
Children and our mothers live in the houses of our children’s villages. In order to finance life in these villages, the support of donors is essential.
The children’s villages sponsorship is 360 Euro a year.
This is approximately only 1 Euro a day. Yet, this small amount gives a child future opportunities and allows life in a stable and social environment. The teenagers leave the villages after 8 years, in order to start an apprenticeship or to go into higher education. Of course, our “older” ones are supported until they can provide for themselves.
With this system, every year there are new places for other children who require sponsors. Please help poor orphans or half-orphans to lead a better life in safety. .
Sponsorship of children living in the slums
In Nagercoil there are three slums which we support since 2012.
We try to help as many children as possible living here to attend school. Without outside help, these children are not able to receive education. Schooling is not free and children have to pay for school uniforms and books. Families living in the slum do not have the money for this as food and clothing are the priority.
Yet, only with education will these children be able to provide for themselves one day.
In our documents we have the details (name, place of residence, school and class) of each child attending school. However, due to organisational reasons it is easier for the charity not to allocate specific children from the slums. We thank you for your understanding.
In our information evenings, we provide details of life in the slums and inform you about sponsorships as well as the work of the charity. You will be notified about these events nearer the time.
A slum-child sponsorship in 60 Euro per year.
Please help us to provide for education!
