Sponsor underprivileged children
Sponsorship is a way of providing basic needs and education for an underprivileged child or young person through the Delek Children’s Foundation. You may directly sponsor a boarding or day student, which means paying set fees on an annual basis. It is up to each sponsor to decide whether they want to be in contact with the child or young person they sponsor or if they wish to remain anonymous. The sponsorship provides school fees, food, clothing, study materials, and simple medical care to enable a student to attend school or college.
How You Can Help
Your contribution will change the lives of impoverished Himalayan children. These children need your help to improve their lives, as their educational opportunities are very limited. You have a unique opportunity to provide an education for one of these children.
Day School Sponsorship
A day school sponsorship for one child is $365.00 per year.
High School Scholarship
A high school scholarship for one student is $500 per year. Unfortunately, free high school is not provided for these children. Each student needs help for four years to graduate and be prepared for college.
You may sponsor a child for one year, four years, or even eight years, depending on their program and your ability to provide funding.
College scholarships are $900 a year and each student needs help for four years. This includes hostel fees, tuition fees, books, travel expenses, and a school uniform to successfully attend and graduate from college. Most of our graduates go into the health professions. Many parents cannot afford to send their children to high school or college, so the children remain at home and search for manual labor jobs outside their villages when they are young teenagers.
Your support will make education possible for so many children in the Himalayan areas of India, Nepal and Bhutan and enable these children to contribute to society and make a difference for future generations.
Sponsorship only covers part of the cost of providing the many programs developed by Delek Children’s Foundation. We greatly depend on donations that are not directed to any particular student, but for the fund in general. These donations will be appropriated according to the current needs.
Occasionally a sponsor can no longer support their student so we need to be able to cover the cost of school fees and supplies. General funds may also provide new uniforms, and school supplies. Since the cost of living has increased greatly in India and Nepal and continues to rise, general donations fill in the gaps that sponsorship do not meet and can keep the cost of sponsorship down. With the General Fund we would to be able to provide whatever is necessary as the need arose.
In addition to the general fund we have an Endowment/Investment Fund that we would like to see increase in order to provide funding and sustain these projects into the future. If you would like to donate to this portion of our work you can send a check or money order, make a stock donation or use our online donation button above. Please state that the designation of your gift is for the DCF Endowment/Investment Fund.
