Our goal is $25,000 to cover the cost of one classroom, but the need is much larger to get this school built. The Theotokos Orphange, outside of Calcutta India had already successfuly setup a primary school, that has been in existence over 10 years. Many of its students have moved on to high school , then college and even graduate school. In a country that statistically has one of the lowest odds of a child going to school period, let alone going on to higher education, this is no small feat. The school is self-sustainable, in that the fiscal model was created so that high-income families pay for their students to go to the school, where they are also boarded. The curriculum is amongst the top in the country, attracting families from all over. Their tuition covers costs for the orphans to be able to attend for no cost. A beautiful side note is, because everyone is in boarding homes, the orphans get a chance to intermingle without the stigma of being an orphan. In these schools they are just another kid, trying to learn. It is critical that we now build a secondary/High School for these same students, to ensure a smooth transition and access to continual great education . The orphanage runs on small donations from people just like you and I. Please consider a donation today, every dollar counts. SHARE this with your friends and family today!
