Lots of little drops…
Fostering a child, that is, financially contributing towards a child’s education is definitely a way of increasing their options in the future and lightening the financial burden on their families.
We now feel we are at a point when we would like to start a fostering process. We encourage friends to contribute towards the education of one or more children. However, these funds will go towards a pool that will contribute towards all the children at Puvidham. Nevertheless, if you want to be in contact with one or more children at a personal level, you are welcome to visit and meet the children and form personal friendships.
The cost for one child to attend Puvidham is Rs. 2400 per year. For a child who will board in the hostel it is Rs. 6000 per year. These fees cover teacher’s salaries, stationery, books, and a nutritious afternoon snack for the day children. For the hostel children, the fee also covers board, bedding and 3 healthy meals a day. These fees convert to approximately USD 55 per year for a day child and USD 140 per year for a hostel child.
You could also contribute:

Our doors are open to anyone and everyone, who would like to visit and spend time at Puvidham. If you would like talk to us do send us a mail. We hope to hear from or see you in the near future!
