Student Sponsorship Programme 2024

Rural women in South India have a great future ahead of them. Many of them want to become lawyers, nurses, teachers. But most do not have the funds they need to do so. Will you help them fulfil their dreams?

Indian Futures has been working towards quality education and gender balance with the most disadvantaged communities in rural South India since 2017.

During this time, we have created 3 IT centres and a Sponsorship Programme for female university students, and provided employment to 7 teachers and admin staff in the area.

Our aim for 2024 is to continue to develop our Sponsorship Programme further, and so, in conjunction with Accenture Ltd. (Chennai), we have created a mentoring and advice service for all our female students. This service is essential to help break the barriers our students face when attending university and guarantee their academic success and, most importantly, a life of independence and fulfilment beyond university.

Through this campaign, we are requesting sponsorship for our 14 students for the academic year 2024/25 - this includes their university fees and transport, educational material and the salary of our Sponsorship Coordinator, Kalpana, who supports the students both academically and emotionally through this important stage of their lives.

You can do a one-off or a monthly donation. If you are unsure as to how much to donate, here is a breakdown of costs:

- £50 a month = Full Sponsorship

- £40 a month = Sponsorship Coordinator's Salary

- £30 a month = University Fees

- £20 a month = Transport to/from University Costs

- £10 a month = University Books and Materials

Today, and thanks to this campaign, you are able to make a difference and help us give rural women this opportunity they so much deserve.

On their behalf, and on behalf of their families and the Indian Futures Team, thank you very much for your contribution.
