SAHARA Project

SAHARA Project

1. The Project SAHARA is an attempt towards ensuring that the families who lost their earning member lives a dignified life and empowered over a period of time.
2. The Project SAHARA comprises of three major components – Support for Family Sustenance Support for education of Children Building Livelihood skills
3. Support for Family Sustenance include providing Grocery pack every month. Widow pension was actually planned for those who lost their earning member to Covid. Practically, it was felt that providing monthly grocery would be a better option. An amount of INR 3000/- per month is estimated for each family.
4. Support for the cost of education would include payment of tuition & other fees of each child directly to the school. Additionally, purchase of books, uniform (once a year), note books & stationery as & when required. An estimated INR 2500/- per month per child is estimated for this purpose
5. Children covered under this project will be attending different schools and as such may differ in terms of fee, books requirement, curriculum etc. As such we may be spending more money on one child and less on other. Though on an average we have estimated ₹2500/- per child, the expenses will be taken on an actual basis only irrespective of whether the actual expenditure on each child is more or less than the estimated money.
