How to Help

Your generous contribution to Ruchika will be of tremendous help in our efforts to provide much needed aid to our children.

What is much more urgently required is regular support on an ongoing basis by socially aware organizations, businesses and compassionate individuals, to prevent any possible disruption to our various charitable programs.

You can provide help & support in many ways:
1. Cash Contributions
2. Sponsorship Support
3. Volunteer your Time and/or Services

To provide sponsorship or to volunteer, you may use the form below…

Cash contributions are more than welcome and urgently required.

While they could help pay for the numerous incidental expenses which constantly occur in the management of any charitable program, they would be most valuable in providing funds for the many one-time expenses such as purchase of a sewing machine, a computer or any such item for a graduating child.

Why We Need Your Sponsorship

Every program has ongoing costs associated with it, like teachers’ salaries, support materials, teaching materials, etc. Disruptions in funding inevitably result in the stoppage (sometimes permanent) of the program, with serious consequences for the children we are trying so hard to help.

A bequest or endowment from a company, foundation or trust would help us avoid such a catastrophe and would allow the programs to continue uninterrupted.
We would be happy to publicly recognize the contributions of our sponsors on our website.

If you would like to provide your support in this way, please submit the information requested in the form below and our representatives will contact you immediately. Your support is vastly appreciated.

How you could be Volunteering

While it may not be possible for everyone to donate cash, we would welcome the assistance of anyone – individuals or businesses, to provide us with their time and/or services depending on their resources and area of expertise.

As an example, the development, maintenance and hosting of this website and the development of all our promotional materials, have been donated to Ruchika by a Canadian New Media development company at absolutely no cost.

Whether you are a teacher, a doctor, a nurse, an accounting firm, an entertainment company, a TV or Radio station, a Film Studio, an advertising firm or maybe just a caring individual who would like to spend time helping or training the children at our various facilities, your contribution would be truly appreciated.
