This is the first program to be added to the Good Karma section.
This program makes it possible for an individual to sponsor the cost of education or total living expense for one underprivileged child in India. The aim is to support this child financially till he completes college or vocational education and is able to support himself. You can become a sponsor for a child in India for as little as $10 a month.
Currently this program is being run by several Asha chapters. This program is solely meant for individual donors to be directly connected to a child at an Asha supported project. Asha for Education is not involved with any adoption process through this program.
For more information on how to support a child, visit the Asha for Education site.
You can track the progress of the donations and children being supported here.
