A school kit, not including steel plate / spoon, costs Rs. 300. This includes 10% administrative expenses.

The recipients of school kits are students of un aided, smaller / informal schools in Delhi / NCR. School kits shall also be sent to children in Uttaranchal (last year 2100 kits), Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal and Uttar Pradesh.

The money is raised and the school kits are packed by YFS volunteers themselves. Furthermore, when the kits are taken to schools, some of YFS volunteers accompany the kits and ensure the distribution.

A school kit adds lot of value to young children.

Goal :
Get kits for 25, 000 school children.

Ideal team of Interns :

  • 7 – 10 people for contacting Industry / trade associations and making presentations to them
  • 7 – 10 people for contacting MNCs / corporates and making presentations to them
  • 3 – 5 people for sourcing the kit materials
  • 3 – 5 people for coordination / logistics etc.
