Donate Rs.2017/= for IDF Bal Gurukuls in India...

Indian Development Foundation (IDF) runs 200 Bal Gurukuls, catering to 10,000 plus children in India. IDF Bal Gurukuls are an after-school programme which guides and empowers the first time school-goers. IDF Bal Gurukuls are a success-proven model which helps a large number of students for nearly 12 years now.
IDF Bal Gurukuls are run on charity/ public donations. To make it a sustainable model, we feel a Corpus Fund will help in the long run. The amount donated will not be used immediately, only the interest that comes out of the donation will be used every year. Thus, your donation will be safe for years to come. This will strengthen the ongoing program and help its sustainability.
31st March is fast approaching. Donate Rs.2017/- or multipies of it. Donations to IDF are exempted u/s 80G of Income Tax Act. Do send us an email confirming your contribution as Corpus Fund so that we can send you the official receipt on time.
Every support counts. Every donation is BIG to us.
IDF in humanitarian service for 33 years.
