Foundation Education for India in Short

Goals we aim to achieve

-To provide all children who have received a basic education through our partner organisiations with the chance to further educate themselves in the field of their own choice.
- To offer quality education to as many children in Tamil Nadu as possible.
- To assist our partner organisations in improving their current projects.
- We offer controlled financial support only to ensure the projects are carried fully by the Indian society. All products and materials are bought locally, supporting the local economy.

What have we achieved so far?

At the present our foundation is supporting over 50 students to finish higher education. Many of them used to stay in the Hallelujah Children Home in Madurai of our partner organisation Sevai Society. Others are from the poor rural village Sindalacherry, where Sevai Society runs a trainings centre. Apart from higher education, we also finance secondary education for  children from the Mary Matha School near Trichy, which is also run by our partner organisation. In 2011 and  2012 the first two batches did their 12th standard final exams. These students are now enrolled in higher education as well through our educational assistance project.

In 2009 we financed school benches, microscopes and computers for a school from our partner organisation and in 2011 we were able to buy a water purifier and more school benches for the fast growing Mary Matha School.

Our motivation

Children that have only finished primary education often end up in hopeless situations, doing illegal work or being unemployed. We wish to break through the circle of poverty and give these children a chance to a better life, by providing them with study finance. We are not able to nor do we wish to transform and modernise the Indian society. We respect its values linked to culture, tradition and religion. We believe in the power of individuals who can make a difference. By providing education, we want to help them achieve this. 

With whom are we doing this?

We cooperate with Sevai Society. This is an Indian aid organization, that has been running several projects in Tamil Nadu since 1996. Sevai Society is a small, financially transparent organization. Every euro is spent on the children.
