"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela
Today Education is the most powerful weapon in the world, only Education helps a family to grow in a better way.
We estimate around 250,000 children in Punjab and the surrounding areas that need sponsorship immediately. if every family living in the West were to sponsor just one child, we would be well on the way to saving an entire generation in no time at all.
Educate Punjab Project (EPP) was initiated to promote higher education amongst the less fortunate people of Punjab. Whilst visiting various schools and colleges, EPP volunteers encountered numerous students who were showing signs of high intelligence, and had huge potential, only being held back by not being able to afford an education. The dropout rate post Primary education in Punjab is extremely high, a large proportion of this is down to one only Poverty.
In this first phase of the this project on DVN, we are targeting to get sponsors for 35 students currently in queue. As the donations are received we will match them to students depending upon the amounts. Here are some sample amounts based per year and notify the donor. You can chose to split the yearly amount into a monthly donation amount.
