At E.A.S.E., we are an organization that provides all our services free of charge because we want to serve families who have the dual challenges of being from low-income households and meeting the needs of a family member with a disability. We are happy that we can give a small allowance to the neediest families to cover their transport and basic necessities.
We help a few families by sponsoring the pre-school education of our students’ younger siblings and we also maintain an emergency fund. This is one of our projects to address a practical and immediate need.
We pick the neediest families through a process that includes interviews and home visits.
We would like to expand this program and you can help to make it happen by donating to the program.
- 3,000 per month travel and nutrition allowance for the family
- 2,000 per month for travel allowance to come for classes
Sponsorships for our families:
- Ashika’s (name changed) mother was abandoned by her husband when they discovered that their child was disabled. The mother struggles to bring up Ashika and her elder brother. She works as a seamstress so she can work at home and take care of Ashika and jeopardises her health by working up to 15 hour days to make, at most, Rs. 180 a day. Ashika’s brother is an extremely helpful and loving son and brother and is a good student. He requires funding for A/L tuition classes.
- Dulini (name changed) has severe cerebral palsy and needs to be carried everywhere. Her mother has to arrange a three-wheeler for them whenever they come to E.A.S.E. She is to visit the centre four times a month but transportation poses a significant financial burden to Dulini’s family, limiting her visits the center. Furthermore, Dulini’s younger sister is ready to go to pre-school but the family cannot afford to send her.
