Through the years NGO’s (Non Government Organizations) have come forward to fill the gap which the government in India has been unable to fill in. While talking to Sowmya on her interview (which you can read here) I realized that the number of NGO’s that are trying to work on issues related to India are quite a few, and they talk to research analysts like Sowmya to help them do the right thing. But there are those who have already spent a lot of time in trying to help various segments in India, like the poor, the old or just children. Working with profit or non-profit these people definitely deserve a mention in their role in the society in India.
I am sure there are a lot of actions we can take to help them add to it the rise of Social Entrepreneurship means that more organizations, individuals and young entrepreneurs are willing to work with the forgotten of society to not only work towards making a profit but doing it though helping a lot of these segments. To be able to do our part we would like to organize a few events (non Profit) to be able to help out someone in need. Along with getting to that part, it is also required that we are all aware of the NGO’s that are available in India where we can help. So I have decided to start of a series where we will introduce a group of NGO’s once or twice a month to be able to provide some help as well.
For the first edition I would like to introduce these three NGO’s

Help A Child to Study
| Website |
Activity: Help A Child to Study sponsors the higher education of meritorious underprivileged students, supporting them to achieve dreams of a better future. We sponsor all formal courses above 10th, including 11th and 12th, diploma courses, degree courses, B.E., M.B.B.S. and Postgrad. Through education our students are able to escape the cycle of poverty through their own talents.
Details: We are very proud of our students – who are the children of labourers, small scale farmers, weavers and other families with low incomes. These students have enormous potential to succeed and only need financial support to do so. We are thrilled that today some of our graduates are placed with large companies such as Mahindra Tech, L&T, and TATA Consultancy Services.
Support: Education, higher education, sponsorship of students.
Note: We are looking for financial donations to support the higher education of our students, most of whom live in rural areas of Maharashtra and Karnataka.
