What we do At GrassRoots

Education Support Program (ESP):

This program is focused to support the cost of education for children from financially challenged sectors of the Indian society.

Our aim is:

  • To inculcate awareness, self knowledge and career guidance through our Dream By Day Design Your Destiny Workshop, into several corporation schools and not for profit organizations. The aim of the workshop is to implant a sense of self development, work through life with well designed purpose, build a deep rooted longing to create change, get motivated to give back to the society and a drive to work towards betterment of the society.
  • To offer scholarships to support children for their school and college education ensuring that every child is exposed to basic tertiary and higher education despite their physical or financial hurdles.
  • To offer skill enhancement training (Computer Skills, Proficiency in English Speaking and Personality Development Training) to enable them to secure jobs both during their Higher Education as well as after Graduation.
  • To connect the educationally accomplished child with recruitment agencies or offer support with campus placement.

Thus through our ESP program a sponsor can offer support to enable a child not only to reach his destination but also empower the child to be able to sponsor another child.

You can become a sponsor for a child to participate in the DBD DYD Workshop for as little as Rs. 500/-. This goes towards the cost of materials and food required to be provided for the child during the course of the the workshop.

Each One | Support One | To Enable | To Empower | To achieve a Dream

Old Age Support Identification System (OASIS):

In view of the changing socio-economic scenario of our traditional society, the nature and dimensions of needs of different groups have also changed, particularly of the aged. It is not only the destitute who need economic support, love and care, but also a large portion of the economically backward, aged and physically fit require social support, emotional and psychological security and community support for wholesome existence.

The activities of the trust are aimed at serving the old aged poor people and the orphans who are being neglected by our society. This is to provide peaceful and healthy living to those who care at the end of their life now living without food and more importantly without LOVE and CARE. Likewise the neglected children can start their life in the protective hands of the trust to become good citizens in future.

The maintenance cost for the old age home is nearly Rs. 50,000/- (Rupees Fifty Thousand Only) for the purchase of provisions every month for providing breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily to the 46 old age inmates and 4 Orphans.
