Sponsor a child - Our Request
UNICEF has placed education among the most important sustainable development goals owing to its potential for transformative changes in society. Education has consequential multiplier effects on sanitation, livelihood, population control and participation in economy. India, with a gross school enrolment rate of less than 60%, will lose its demographic dividend if we do not prevent school dropouts. Research has time and again indicated that financial constraints are the major impediment to continuing education.

The carefully selected deserving beneficiaries include children from tribal hamlets, orphanages and underprivileged sections of society. Your valued contribution will help those children to pay for their tuition, books, school bags, uniform sets, and other educational stationaries required for the academic year 2018-19.
