Who We Are and What We Do
Education remains a dream for many of the world's poor.Dors to India is a Dorset based charity that helps make it a reality for Tamil Nadu's coastal communities,sponsoring hundreds of school places since it was formed nearly a decade ago.
Children of poor families are less likely to enrol in and complete schooling even when it is provided "free".The cost of uniforms,supplies and transport may well be beyond the families means.As the children grow older the cost of their lost labour becomes greater,increasing the likelihood of abandoning school
Throughregular donations from members and by holding fundraising events we currently support 62 children throught their schooling,from age 5 to 18. Six young people who completed school with our support are now going through university with ongoing support from Dors to india
We also fund homework clubs enabling children to study in the evenings and school and village medical camps to provide regular health checks for the children
"Investing in education is the single most effective way of reducing poverty"
