Keep aside Rs 100 every month from your pocket. This is a small sum for a working professional. May be you cut down your mobile bill or skip a visit to a big hotel or a pizza parlour. And join us in the “Donate 100” campaign.
The idea: The contributed money will be made use for the betterment of rural kids studying at Kaliyuva Mane (Home for Learning), a free residential school started by Divya Deepa Trust in Mysore.
The kids are basically school dropouts and orphans, and your contribution of Rs 100 will be used to provide a meal for 10 kids. If you plan on contributing Rs 1000, this will be used to feed 100 kids each month.
The kids have come to Kaliyuva Mane with bundle of dreams. Let us give wings those dreams and enjoy the innate happiness in framing a kids life. Think about the big impact that you are going to create with this small contribution.
Receipts will issued immediately after your contribution reaches us. All donations are exempted from tax [u/s 80G of Income tax Act 1961].
