VEDIKE Child Sponsorship ProgramVEDIKE is an NGO based in Bangalore, India. In the local language, the name ‘Vedike’ means ‘Platform’. This reflects our objective of becoming a platform for underprivileged children in the rural community outside of Bangalore, where they can be lifted out of cycle of poverty and social exclusion. VEDIKE invites you to partner with us through the VEDIKE Child Sponsorship Program. For as little as $300 ($25 per month for 12 months) you can sponsor a child for a year!
$300 ($25 per month for 12 months) goes towards the costs of food, accommodation, education, clothes, educational materials and other individual needs of the child.

A child sponsorship usually extends over a number of years as the child advances in their education and the wider community development project progresses. We encourage a minimum of a year’s contribution. At times a child sponsorship ceases when the child and their family move away from the area or for other personal reasons. If this happens, VEDIKE will inform you and help identify another child for you to sponsor if that is your wish.
We understand that your personal financial circumstances may change and make it difficult for sponsorship to be maintained. Sponsors are free to suspend or cancel their payments at any time and for any reason.
The easiest way of keeping up-to-date is to join our VEDIKE Facebook page (www.facebook.com/VEDIKE). This page is regularly updated.
Yes, you certainly can! Children love to receive letters and photos from their sponsors. They can be sent to email@example.com. We will forward your letter to your sponsor child along with a translation. We ask that you do not include your personal contact details in letters to your sponsor child as doing so can lead to unsolicited requests for assistance. Please mention the child’s name and your first name only.
The children love to write to their sponsors so you can expect letters in response. If you haven’t received a reply within 3 months please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We ask that you do not send individual gifts as this can create problems with other children at VEDIKE. However, if you would like to send a small gift to all the children at VEDIKE please contact us.
Yes! A visit to meet your sponsor child is a great way to see the impact of your contributions first hand. If you are interested please contact us to organise an appointment and discuss other formalities.
