All students in the Each One Educate One partner schools are provided education at no cost. The Each One Educate One program helps fund the tuition fees of beneficiary students. In 2020-21, the program was able to sponsor the education of 3450 children in rural India. Students from grades 6 to 12 are covered under this program. It takes INR 27,000 OR USD 365 per year, to support the education of a boy or a girl in any of our 23 partner schools.
In order to support children hailing from very impoverished rural families and ensure that their weak socio-economic conditions do not rob them of their fundamental right to education, the E1E1 Foundation has embarked on this program which includes both the school/tuition fees and the hostel expenses. Additionally, other needs of the student are also covered, be it clothing, footwear, sportswear, toiletries, bedding, mess fees etc. The cost of sponsoring a child through this full sponsorship program is INR 70,000 or USD 1000 per year.
With the establishment of the Sri Sathya Sai University for Human Excellence in Gulbarga a couple of years ago; the Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Gurukulam system of education is available right until the culmination of a student’s formal education, providing a seamless transition from Secondary School level, all the way to Post Graduation & PhD.
All this is of course absolutely free of cost, with the University in fact going a few steps even further to provide not just education but each and every other necessity absolutely free to all its students. It is the only University in the world that does so in pursuit of our shared vision, to enable the spread of this unique values-based model of education across the Nation. The cost of sponsoring a university student through this full sponsorship program is INR 150,000 or USD 2000 per year.
