The Rajghat Education Centre of the Krishnamurti Foundation India is seeking donations for the following :
School Scholarships To award scholarships to deserving students who cannot afford to pay the full fee for studying in the Rajghat Besant School.
$ 1,000 ( =Rs. 50,000) supports one student for one year.
Solar Energy for Hostels The school uses firewood for heating water for students to bathe in winters. Since this leads to deforestation it is proposed to install a solar energy heating system backed with electricity in all the hostels. Estimated cost $50,000 (=Rs 25,00,000)
Female Ward for Sanjeevan Hospital It is proposed to add a child and maternity welfare section to our rural hospital which treats the economically deprived villagers in our vicinity free of cost.
Suggested Donation: $10,000 (=Rs 500,000)
Free Mid-day meal for girl-students in the village Primary School The Krishnamurti Foundation India runs a Rural Centre in Rajghat, Varanasi to provide primary education, healthcare and vocational training to the deprived villagers living in the vicinity of our campus. The villagers do not send female children to the school as the girls are used to help at home. The provision of free meals in the school enables the girls to be educated. Suggested donation: $5000 (=Rs 2,50,000) for one year.
Afforestation The Rajghat Education Centre has a project for afforestation of the land surrounding its campus. Suggested donation: $1000 (=Rs 50,000 per year)
