Samanvai has a strong vision and mission to change the world and create a better future for people with disabilities by providing support services, equal opportunities and inclusive status in society. We have high ambitions to help people with disabilities, but we do need support from donors and well-wishers to fulfill our dreams. To provide support services to more children and create a difference, we need financial and voluntary resources. Samanvai requests for financial support from donors so that we can fulfill our goals. We greatly appreciate monetary and or material support from interested donors.
Ways to help us!
We know that generous donors are willing to contribute but do not know how to create value for their money. So we are glad to help donors to successfully contribute their money, material and time towards legitimate noble cause. Donors can contribute to Samanvai in various ways:
Contribute money to Samanvai’s general fund or towards a specific program
Samanvai operates completely with the help of generous philanthropists like you. All funds in our main account will be used for our operating expenses, organizing events help students based on need and take care of all our purchases.Funds donated to specific program will be used to serve students under that program. For detailed information on all our activities, please visit our Services section.
We don’t demand specific amount from donors to contribute towards general fund or towards specific program but with our continuous analysis, we expect to raise 100000.00 INR per month to continue all our support services. So we appreciate donors to contribute recurring amounts though the amount is small.
Donors can choose to sponsor one or more students on a monthly or annual basis.
Samanvai provides financial support for living/boarding, educational tools/books and college/school fee.
Donors can choose students to sponsor based on their need and academic merit. Please click on beneficiary’s page to understand the requirements from our students and read about their success stories. Please note, samanvai gives preference for need more than academic merit. We believe in student’s hard work, eagerness to achieve high goals in life. We believe in taking average students and turn them in to role models. We will be happy to help donors in choosing the student to sponsor.
We request interested Donors to sponsor 5000 INR per month to sponsor one student and 50000 INR per year.
Establish Scholarship fund with a preferred name
Donors can set up scholarship fund with preferred name and guidelines. Donors can choose to support students in any area that they are interested. Please note, donors have to select service area among any of our target programs. All student sponsor ships and scholarships will be used to support students in education and other areas which help student’s holistic development. Many of our students need financial help to pay for their school/college fees, living/boarding, and fees for educational tools.
Contribute materials or equipment towards any particular program
We gladly accept material/equipment support from donors. We are continuously in need of material like brail paper, blank cassettes, blank DVD’s or CD’s, MP3 players, hardware technology, software, intervention toys for the rehabilitation center, stationery and office supplies.
Donors wishing to donate materials or equipment should contact us in advance to know about our needs. Donors can make donations in the form of cash, checks and or through direct deposit. People wishing to directly deposit funds into our account should contact us for account details. All checks can be made payable to Samanvai Society.
Besides financial support, we are always in need of volunteers who can help in various ways by:
- Teaching school/college subjects to students in the evenings
- Recording educational material in multiple languages for different classes
- Scripting exams
- Helping with scanning books in Braille
- Providing assistance during special events and field trips
Listed above are only some examples of how you can help us, but we have many more opportunities for volunteers who are interested in contributing to Samanvai. Please visit our Volunteer Opportunities page to know more about how volunteers can contribute to our efforts.
Thank you so much for your help with and interest in Samanvai!
