SponsorMe helps at-risk children & orphans #StayInSchool
95% of our children are from Goverment sponsored shelter homes catering to orphaned, abused or at-risk children. Education can give them a future of dignity.
We find a child, you ensure her a better tomorrow
We identify the children purely based on financial need and willingness to study. With your help they can fly.
100% to the child, not a penny of your money goes to administration
You will get an individual statement for the child you sponsor, about how each rupee was spent for him/her. It's our promise to not use a penny for anything else.
It's not just Pay Forward, we believe in #CareForward
Our children are encouraged to help someone in need, when they are financially stable. This gives them a sense of purpose, apart from keeping your care alive for generations.
Dignity - our children are not walking billboards
We make sure our children go to school just like any other child. We hate to brand them as charity kids or put any kind of promos on the ware we supply.
How it Works
How does this work?
SponsorMe acts as a bridge between the sponsor (i.e. you) and the children in need of assistance.
We work with Child Welfare Centers and various NGO's to identify children in need of assistance to pursue quality education. We negotiate with good schools in the area to admit these children at special rates. We also work with the NGO or CWC to ensure that the children get adequate bridge courses and after-school assistance to cope up.
Who we are
A short intro on people behind
We are a group of working professionals, who are out to help solve a specific problem with focus and resolve.
This started as a very small initiative to help a handful of children. When we spoke about it to friends, most of them were interested to help as well. That is how it all started. As someone rightly said - if not me, who? if not now, when?! That led us to register a trust and dedicate our time to run it. All the while, we were very clear on why we went on to help these children directly. Those reasons became our differentiators. This Trust is only about helping children in need and we do not align to or promote any religion or political party. We do not discriminate on the basis of caste, religion, color, gender, region or any other demographic parameters. We are registered as a non-profit charitable trust in Bangalore, Karnataka, India. Please read the why section below, to know more about the philosophy and thoughts based on which we operate.

Why Sponsor & Why Us
We thought you would ask. Here is what makes this different.
If you still have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
All the money you give a child goes to the child, to the last penny. We do not take any of it for any other purposes, not even to cover costs of running this organization. We respect your gesture to educate a child, and would not touch those funds to cover our administrative costs. That is our promise to you, and will be upheld and published via our annual accounts and audits.
All our kids are expected to, but not obligated to, take this goodness forward by sponsoring at least one child when they grow up. More than a way of repaying, we want to look at this as continuing your goodness as a chain for eternity, and as a motivation for the child to do well in studies and keep this promise.
We are aware that money alone is not enough. We make sure each child gets not just money, but moral support and mentorship as well. If you are willing to provide it, great. If not, one of our volunteers would do it.
