“Supporting the Future – Sponsoring Children in Nepal”

Basic Goodness Education Sponsorships

 

Projects

The Basic Goodness Foundation supports education and health care to disadvantaged communities who have little or no other access to these vital services. The projects we support are a direct response to the needs and aspirations of the local communities we serve. While we currently work through local partners who have existing projects that meet our criteria, we aim to broaden our coverage in the future as we develop our capacity and capabilities further.

 

Education Sponsorships

The Basic Goodness Foundation supports initiative seeks to provide children with sponsors willing to fund the beginning and/or continuation of their education.

 

Funding for one year of education ranges from $400-$1000 USD. This provides admission fees, uniforms, stationary, text books, as well as extracurricular activity fees. You are welcome to donate a one-time offering, become a sponsor for a full year of education, or become a regular annual sponsor.
