The programme is incredibly cost effective as we are not building schools or employing teachers, but are helping girls succeed in the state school system. The annual budget is €17'700 which works out at less than €150 per girl per year. The management costs in India are just 13% of the budget, and everybody outside of India is a volunteer
Why we need you
The 2019-20 Budget
We regularly organise cosmetic cream fund raising workshops, do let us know if you would like to organise one in your area or if you would like to attend the next one on Geneva.
If you have any fund raising ideas we would love to hear from you.
Your donation will change lives. We can't do it without you.
SED is a grass roots organisation, and does not benefit from government grants or institutional funding. Every donation goes directly to supporting the girls in India. The programme has gone from strength to strength and over time, with the number of girls in the programme growing, the group of friends and family who support those girls has grown too. Today, we need your help
Making a donation today will change a life forever.
Our very heartfelt thanks go to so many people and organisations who helped change the lives of the 760 girls who have participated in our scholarship programmes since 2002.
In particular, for 2017, 2018 and 2019, our thanks go to:
To the lovely group of warm hearted people who enabled 42 girls to be part of the programme for one year, and who prefer to remain anonymous;
The participants of the last six Cosmetic Cream workshops who supported 35 girls for one year;
Jane’s friends and family whose 60th birthday present enabled 15 girls to be part of the programme for one year;
To Lata Ramaseshan and her friends who supported 9 additional girls in the 2018-19 programme;
Every Drop Counts Association who supported 6 girls;
Members and attenders of Geneva Quaker Monthly Meeting who supported 3 girls for one year.
