My name is Jaimoe and I'm a German volunteer (among three others) currently working for 10 months at a local Indian NGO, named Human Wave (HW). I want to help this small but growing organisation complete their Vivekananda Wisdom Mission School (VWMS), a project that was started back in 2011. Insufficient funds have stretched progress over 4 years creating budget holes and many other financial problems. The school is completed to about 85% with one incomplete floor remaining. I want to help HW reach the 100%, because there seem to be no further funds for this last bit.
About Human Wave: Human Wave is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation that has worked very hard, for the past 17 years, to support cultural development and education of disadvantaged children in slums and remote villages. Nearly 800 students are studying in their tutorials and schools. HW operates in a local area just outside of Kolkata, India.
VWMS (one of three schools) currently has 128 students enrolled with 10 teachers and 4 non-teaching staff. The school covers classes from Nursery to Class IV. The plan is to extend the program up to Class X in the future. VWMS would be the only income generating project to support HW in financing mentioned activities, if completed. HW has not been independently sustainable, so far, and has relied on several external charities and funds from EU countries to maintain their program. This proves the completion of the school vital for the NGO's future financial independence.
All funds collected will be used to complete the construction of the upper and final floor of the school as well as a second staircase that is needed to meet fire escape regulations.
We, as Human Wave and its fellow volunteers, are asking you to help us finally complete this project for the benefit of Human Wave and all of its fellow students!
