Poverty is one of the obstacles that prevent children from attending school. READ Foundation provides free education to such children, especially orphans.
The Orphan Sponsorship Programme started in 1997 with 374 children. READ Foundation today helps 9,960 children get a quality education through financial assistance from kind-hearted individuals, philanthropic organisations and socially responsible businesses. More than 1,000 orphans enrol in our schools each year.
The sponsorship package includes:
- Tuition Fee
Depending on availability of funds, a stipend is provided to the mothers or extended families of the sponsored children. The sponsors receive a detailed profile and annual progress reports of the children in their sponsorship.
