This month, I chose to spend $20 to donate school uniforms to a child in India. Check out this little cutie that I helped send to school...
Vaum Lavanya is six years old, studying grade one is the youngest child of Veerababu, who is a farm laborer from the village Thammavaram which is located in the outskirts of Kakinada, Andhra Pradesh, India. Veerababu is a mason works inKakinadawhich is about 10 kilometers from his village. He earns about $4 per day, when he can find the work only. Because of his poor economic background his children need support for proper education and development. His another child is older than Lavanya and also studying Grade 3 in Sarada Vidyalayam, the school managed by Sankurathri Foundation.
Under such circumstances education is never a priority for them and if they send the child to work she can make some money to supplement the family income. In this manner many boys and girls in the rural areas are becoming child laborers and supporting their families.
Thus there are many children in the rural areas who are drop outs of education because of their parents' economic conditions. Sarada Vidyalayam is helping such children to complete their education without any financial burden to their parents. The school provides not only free education. The school maintains a very strict curriculum and provides quality education and imparts good discipline and values to groom them as good citizens. With your assistance we can provide a set of two uniforms to Lavanya.
Thank you Kayla to make a change in Lavanya's life.
I did not give a See Your Impact donation in April. Instead, I came across this blog with a wonderfully amazing 14 year old. She is trying to raise over 5 million dollars to send 1 million chickens to families in India. By donating just $11 you send a family a male and female chicken. The female chicken can lay eggs for both food and to birth more chickens. It gives each family food and a new buisness as they start to farm their growing chicken family. This girl has raised over $37,000 so far for chickens. That's just about 7000 chickens! She's 14!
If you would like donate some chickens for this great cause, you can go to this site and do just that. Because really, what else were you going to do with that $11?
