A Chance for a New Life
At ISC, we believe it is our responsibility to bring up children to become equal parts competent and compassionate. Your sponsorship will ensure that disadvantaged children get access to educational resources, nutritional food, family-based care and safe spaces, ensuring an equal chance at development.
What The Sponsorship Covers
Education for Every Child
Your support will ensure age and grade appropriate enrolment, attendance, retention, and progression of one child at the Antar Bharati Balgram School in Lonavla.
A Life of Care
Your support will ensure that the child receives all the resources to live and thrive in a safe family-based environment at Bal Gram, where we ensure provision of nutritious food, support towards physical and mental, health and overall safety and security.
This is the 6th year of our support to ISC’s Bal Gram programme, and we continue to work with them on this initiative as this cause is close to our heart and these children need our support and encouragement. We found the foundation team to be committed to the cause and we are satisfied with their work.
