Sponsor a Child with HEEALS
At HEEALS we are more aware than most that your money spent well is important to you. Unlike most non-profits, 90% of us are volunteers who want nothing more than to improve the conditions and livelihoods of young and very underprivileged children. So help us help them.
Each day HEEALS comes into close contact with children from genuinely under-privileged backgrounds. We witness,first-hand what it means to them the huge impact an education has on the lucky few.
The schooling they receive is led by dedicated teachers in surroundings that certainly make the most of the very limited resources on offer.Sadly, education for India’s poorest is not free in public and private schools and this places a significant financial drain on the families of young children.
In recognition of this HEEALS would like to offer the opportunity to alleviate some of the burden by offering the chance to directly sponsoring a child’s educational costs.
The programme gives the option of sponsoring the whole (complete donor) or a part (semi donor) of a child’s educational fees each month with 100% of the donation going directly to the school.
After being assigned a child, all donors will receive an introductory pack (with photos and details of your child’s community)and bi-annual feedback regardingyour child’s academic performance. For “complete” donors there will also be the option of an annual Skype video call and written correspondence between you and your child.
There isan additional opportunity to visit your child and see for yourself the tangible benefits that your donations have given. All forms of communication shall take place in the presence of HEEALS.
Educational has long been proven as the key to lifting children and families out of long-term poverty. Hope is a wonderful gift.

Education in India is provided by the public sector as well as the private sector, with control and funding coming from three levels: central, state, and local. Public/government schools: Most schools in India are funded and run by the government.
However, the public education system faces serious challenges, including a lack of adequate infrastructure, insufficient funding, a shortage of staff and scarce facilities.
What is food hygiene?
Food hygiene are the conditions and measures necessary to ensure the safety of food from production to consumption.
The 13th of July 2013, in Patna, 22 children died to have eaten in their canteens. The food was served in receipt with chemical problems.
More recently,the 25th of February 2016, in Mumbai, 100 children went at the hospital after having mid-day meal in a government school. No one died but that it would have be a tragedy.
The hygiene problem is always the same, people have to eat with her hand. They don’t have plates, spoons and forks to eat.And it is not always clean. People are not informed about hygiene.
Things have to chance to ameliorate hygiene conditions. If nothing changes,the parents won’t send their children to school if they know their children will die. Consequence:decrease of Indian alphabetization.
Is it normal to send children to school and there are risks of disease, infection and malnutrition?
The government has put a new condition to help poor families to send children to school. The program is to pay the canteen for all families. This is a very good thing happening.
A kid who doesn’t like the food, doesn’t eat. Children should have the choice of what they want to eat to ameliorate malnutrition problem.
On the TV, the government should tell to the population how they can ameliorate hygiene condition at schools and at home. If the government does this television program, everyone could change their provided hygiene and India will be less sick.
Heeals needs your support and volunteers to change to improve the living conditions. Your action, even the smallest, will change the life of Indian people.

Sanitation challenge: Turning commitment into reality
Good information on sanitation and hygiene is essential for making the right decisions. Getting the most useful information to flow from those who produce it to the people who use it is the challenge.

In most cases, volunteers work in developing countries on international development programmes with local partners that address basic needs such as education, health and sanitation.
