WHERE WE ARE

RECENT UPDATES

Student Sponsorship Update

Published Mon, Mar 19, 18. Written by Valeria Miller.

Hello and Happy Spring!

As you may remember from our most recent newsletter update, we have a student sponsorship program at Manthano Modern School, the school that Kolkata City Mission started in the rural village area outside Kolkata. We started this school as a way to reach a marginalized and impoverished community of people and provide their children with a quality English education with no cost to them. Good education in India costs a lot of money and often weighs heavily on families. In communities like the ones that we serve, education is something that usually cannot be afforded. Lack of education is one of the things fueling the perpetual cycle of generational poverty, but we are passionately moving to change that! We are able to offer free education to these children because of the student sponsorship program.

Here are the basics:
-An individual or family can choose to sponsor one of our students for $25 a month. This involves going onto our website, choosing a child, setting up an account, and setting up a payment. To make it even easier, you can select automatic monthly payments so you don't have to worry about missing one. All donations are tax deductible. 
-The child you sponsor will attend classes at our school and receive the things they need for their schooling and health care needs. They will send you a letter or picture twice a year and are able to receive letter communication from you as often as you send it.
-Because we believe that the money you generously give should go exactly where you allot it to go, we have very low overhead and administration costs, so almost the entirety of your donation goes directly to support the child you are sponsoring. 

We aren't just sponsoring academic education, we are supporting the healthy growth and development of these children, pouring into them deeply, and sending them out into the world with confidence and success, putting an end to their family's story of poverty! 

Basketball Fever - Ex-Resident brings hobby to India

Published Mon, Mar 19, 18. Written by Valeria Miller.

We at Kolkata City Mission are thankful for Bryan Anton Rose for partnering with us, for promoting and coaching of these village boys and girls for a greater purpose.  Great article published by Danville Commercial newspaper.
 
Mr. Byran Anton Rose "In America, I've witnessed first hand how Basketball is used to build better lives and also build self worth amongst communities. India is prime for the game of Basketball to be used as a tool for positive change, but also a bridge builder to the rest of the world."
