Fund Appeal for Women Empowerment project

During the last 18 years, SCALE has been working extensively and tirelessly towards the upliftment of the marginalized sections of society. In a significant initiative for providing dignity of life and power of education to the needy children, it has donated over 5,000 school uniforms with shoes and socks to 160 Anganwadi schools.

SCALE is looking for assistance from like-minded people and organizations. In case you identify yourself with our vision towards empowering more rural women and providing dignity of life to under-privileged children, do come forth with your support. SCALE is committed to providing its donors photographs and details of the beneficiaries of its initiatives.

Women in these homes have been greatly concerned about their unaffordability to provide education to their children. With parents of such kids earning meagre monthly wages between US$ 60-75, many children have dropped out from schools.

SCALE mission in 2019-21 is to donate additional 6250 school uniforms, shoes and socks to cover 250 Anganwadi Schools.

SCALE is looking for donors to help accomplish this mission. The cost of each set of two uniforms, with two pairs of socks and shoes is approximately INR 1000 (USD 14). Your kind support can bring in joy, zest and motivation to the family, as well as to the life of a child. SCALE is committed to providing its donors photographs and details of the beneficiaries of its initiatives.
