12% of all Boys and 12% of all Girls
in India still do child labor!
Even though scholar education is free and mandatory until 14 years old the schools are not equipped properly, they lack qualified teachers
and especially on the country side the school is often out of reach
The learning and community centre Thamarai
tries to make it's contribution to the village development. The project, which is located in Auroville
(More specific in Edayanchavadi), South India, offers amongst other things a Kindergarten
and a night school
. This is a non-profit project
, which offers free education and therefore needs volunteers and donations
Who am I?
My name is Said Ettejjari
, I am 19 years old
and will soon graduate with my Abitur (A-levels). Starting in August I will work as a volunteer at Thamarai and will be supportet by weltwärts
and Auroville International Deutschland e.V.
The government funded project weltwärts
pays 75% of the total costs
(Flight, Accomodation etc.). The rest needs to be paid by the organisation
, in my case Auroville International Deutschland e.V.
(AVI-D). Because AVI-D is a non-profit organisation it needs donations to keep working
.And now you come into play:
With your donation you support:
- the AVI-D with their costs for the volunteers
- the continuation of sending volunteers to Auroville
free education for children and the youth in the region of Pondicherry
- the continuation and funding of the project Thamarai
- for many childs and young people: a better life!
I thank you for every donation and for every kind of support you give!
