We welcome all kinds of help including donations of time, services, goods, or money. If you are planning to visit Varanasi and would like to be a part of our school in any way, feel free to contact us. We would love to be a part of your Varanasi experience. Previous volunteers have spent as little as two hours at the school (taking photos, playing games, teaching a hobby) and up to three years (teaching crafts to the children once a week).
Since it only costs us Rs. 1100/US $16 per month to educate a child, even small financial donations make a big difference. If you would like to make a contribution in rupees, you may deposit directly into our ICICI account:
Acct name: Hope & Joy Soc for the Underprivileged
ICICI Acct #: 628305016857
IFSC Code: ICIC0006283
Location: Varanasi, Luxa Branch
We can accept US dollar donations through PayPal. Here's a link for your convenience:
Thank you for your interest and support. This work is a challenge for us, but we feel happy that we have been given the opportunity to positively impact the lives of the students, their families, and the community in which they live.
Best wishes from,
and the children of Asha Deep Vidyashram
