Guidelines for Sponsorship

Sponsor a Child at East & West Primary School or East & West High School, Bela
School - based Sponsorship/Outreach Programme of East & West Primary/High School, Bela is primarily meant for the children from disadvantaged group or weaker sections, from Bela and adjoining cluster of villages, as well as from outside. Some children will be accommodated in the hostel for fuller attention, while a larger number of children from the neighbourhood can be admitted as day scholars. Preference will be given to the girl child from the neighbourhood as day scholars. Currently the school is catering to sixty villages in the neighbourhood.

Sponsorship Scheme
While individuals can sponsor even one child, from institutions it is desirable that children are sponsored in units of ten, that is ten or twenty or fifty or hundred. Per child sponsorship will entail a support / donation as per the slab given below. The sponsorship may be open, leaving the choice of beneficiary to the management of East & West Primary / High School, or one may like to nominate a child (or more children) of their own choice. It is possible to sponsor on behalf of or in the name of one's parents or near and dear ones, and it will be duly recorded and acknowledged and progress report will be sent as per the option given by the sponsor. Donors will be kept posted with the progress of the sponsored child or the group of children being sponsored by them.

Eligibility of children for sponsorship
Children from disadvantaged groups or weaker sections which find it difficult to support education of their children even at the low expenses will be eligible for full sponsorship unless the sponsor admits a particular child to the school on his / her own or nominates a specific child. In case selection is being made by school, preference will be given to children from dalit families, with special attention to the girls. Among the day scholars sponsored children will again be preferably girls from weaker sections including dalits and minorities.
