Help A Child Learn Computers?

Dear friends,

As you know Adharshila has been striving to give high quality, relevant education to tribal children for the past eleven years.

Though we have managed significant progress in developing infrastructural facilities, constant electric supply continues to elude us. Due to this crippling problem, we are not able to do the documentation and curriculum development work we hope will make our approach permanent and shareable, even though we now have three people dedicated to the task .

Further, a part of the Adharshila dream is to give meaningful computer education to children. We have managed to procure computers and laptops from friends. After much effort, we have even had a transformer installed on the campus. This has ensured that we get good voltage. But this has still not solved the problem as electricity comes for a very limited time.

To overcome this hurdle we have decided to install two inverters. As you know we rely more on individual donations rather than institutional grants. For this project we are appealing to friends to help us buy the inverters.

The total cost for installing the two inverters of 1 kw each and batteries @ Rs.25,000.00/unit, will be Rs. 50,000.00.

We would be grateful for whatever contribution you make towards installing this facility. We ensure you that your support will go a long way in the development of these children and their community. You can address cheques to the address given above, or click on the lik below to donate online.
