As you know, our programme survives purely on donations.
The annual budget requirement for the academic year 2009 – 2010 continues to be about 3.0 lakh Rupees. We welcome your continued participation in this educational endeavour. All contributions are welcome and valuable, irrespective of the size.
The SET hopes, with your help, to continue to help these children in the coming years.We also hope, alongside the basic educational requirements, to be able to provide additional health and nutritional supplements, and at least one special excursion during this coming year.
Contributions can be made in two manners. A one time contribution to the corpus fund, whose interest will be used for the long-term educational costs of these children, or a yearly contribution, sponsoring one or more child.

In one small city at the foothills of the Himalayas, are a group of dedicated individuals who are making a difference in the lives of several children.
These volunteers are educating and mentoring children who come from the poorest families of Dehradun, a city in which many migrants from the Garhwal hills and other regions come in search of jobs. These families live a hand to mouth existense, and most are surviving on a monthly salary of a few thousand rupees.
