Ways to help poor people get education

Education is one of the sectors that plays a significant role in the nation’s development and prosperity. However, in many countries, underprivileged sections of the society are not even provided with an opportunity to learn and develop themselves for a better tomorrow.

The article 21A of Indian constitution emphasises on mandatory and free education to all children (from age 6 to14 years). However, despite this, there are still more than 30 million children in the country that do not go to schools. 

Over the years, many government organisations and charity foundations have successfully worked towards providing education to the poor, however, in order to be a country with 100% literacy, the public’s contribution is very much needed. 

Hence, the question that arises here is how can an individual or general public help poor people get education? 

Here are some of the ways that one can consider-

  • Donate for education 

One of the best ways to help poor people get education is by making monetary or in kind donations (like books, stationery and so on) to charity organisations and education NGOs. Presently, there are many education NGOs in India, hence, it would not be difficult for an individual to find one to connect with. 

Nowadays, many charitable organisations accept online monetary donations hence, a donor can easily donate online from anywhere around the country. 

Narayan Seva Sansthan, is an example of this. The Sansthan, prestigiously known for its works towards noble causes like helping divyangs, providing education to poor children and so on, accepts funds online from the public through their website.

In case of in kind donations or even monetary donations that you wish to donate personally, you can still search for your nearby charity organisations online.

  • Volunteering at education NGOs

Apart from donation, volunteering in an NGO working for education in India can be a great way in helping the underprivileged. As a volunteer, you might receive tasks like teaching the poor students or distributing stationeries to them which will definitely make you feel good about helping someone. 

  • Tutoring the underprivileged 

If you are gifted with knowledge, then sharing it with the underprivileged is the best way through which you can help them. Hence, by tutoring some underprivileged students, you can not just bring a big difference in their scores but also in their lives. 

  • Organising collection drives

Holding collection drives for books, stationery or other such materials and donating it to the underprivileged can be a great way of helping and supporting them in attaining education.

  • Organising fundraising events 

Organising or participating in fundraising events that support education for the underprivileged can be a great way of helping. 

You can even do crowdfunding with a group of people and donate the amount to an education NGO.

Along with the education, the academy also provides them with free stationaries, uniforms, food, conveyance and health care facilities.
