When you sponsor a Learning Centre, you help educate up to 30 girl children for one year. While that’s reason enough to get involved, there are other benefits to being a sponsor. Your sponsorship donation is fully tax-deductible and 100% of your donation is guaranteed to go to education, not administrative or fundraising costs.
If you choose to help crowdfund a Learning Centre, you can donate whatever you can afford. If you want to directly sponsor a Learning Centre, we ask you to commit to a $2,500 (tax-deductible) donation.
Today there are over 1,700 iimpact Learning Centres operational in over 1,500 villages educating over 60,000 girls in 11 States of India: Rajasthan, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Bihar, West Bengal, Orissa, Uttarakhand, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Chattisgarh.
iimpact India is funded largely by corporate donors in India. Many of these companies have been impacted by the global pandemic and some have cut back their funding. As a result, we now have 80 Learning Centres without ongoing funding that are at risk of closure.
Due to lockdown restrictions, Learning Centres are not fully operational, but teachers need to be retained and paid. Under new Alternate Learning Arrangements, the children attend the centres in batches of 10-15 per day under strict COVID safety protocols.
Throughout 2021-22, iimpact Australia will run campaigns to raise donations that will crowdfund Learning Centres in need of sponsorship. Keep an eye out for our ‘Shine a Light’ campaign during Oct-Nov and Workplace Giving programs (new this year!).
Choose a Learning Centre to sponsor and sponsor it as an individual, sponsor through your organisation or with a group of friends. You may be able to select a location and can choose to name the Centre, with signage. You can hold a launch event (at your cost and with prior arrangement) and visit the Centre. You will get regular updates on the progress of your Learning Centre.
It only takes one person to make the biggest difference. Sponsor a Learning Centre on your own. You can name it to commemorate a loved one.
Whatever your organisation’s mandate, we can provide a tailored program to suit you and provide regular reporting on outcomes achieved with your donation.
Have an extraordinary group of friends or colleagues? Do something extraordinary together and sponsor a Learning Centre. We can set up a private page for you to share on social.
