Fundraising for Rural PreSchool – #FundAhamBhumika

One of the greatest joys I’ve known as a parent is my son returning home from preschool and reciting the rhymes he learnt in that cute voice. Of course, he did this only at times when he thought my attention was elsewhere – he would blush a furious red and clam up with a shy smile every time I looked at him, so I learnt to pretend to ignore him as he sang, just so he wouldn’t stop!

I am sure a lot of parents can relate to this. After all, watching our kids learn and grow is a matter of borrowed pride for most of us!

But what about the children who don’t have the opportunities to learn? Or the ones that lose it because their school ran out of funds? It does not seem right, but that is what may happen to a rural preschool run by Aham Bhumika.

This preschool is in a village called Borda, Kolar Road, Bhopal, India. They have about 40 students, who belong to the underprivileged category. Their parents are daily wage workers, and most are illiterate. The school needs about INR 14000 every month. They are welcoming all contributions from individuals to keep the school running. Any amount is fine to help them continue their good work.

Below are the bank account details of Aham Bhumika if you wish to contribute:
(All donations are tax exempted under Section 80-G of Income Tax of India)

Online bank transfer/cheque payments can be done using following information:

A/c name: Aham Bhumika Swayam Sevi Sanstha
Savings Account No.: 2073101015874
IFSC Code: CNRB0002073

Also send them an email at ahambhumika@gmail.com with the following information: Your name, Address, Donation amount, PAN Number, and Contact number.

If you wish, you could also buy these amazing hand painted shoes (ranging from INR 999 to INR 1499) or paintings from their website, or make other suitable donations as listed here.

I also request my fellow bloggers to share a post of their own, so that together we can reach more people. Please share the post on social media (use the hashtag #FundAhamBhumika to share. You may use images from their Facebook or Twitter pages in your post). You may also add it to the linky given on this page.

Fund crunch must not be the reason that denies education to these wonderful kids.
