How you can Help
We want to do more and you can help. By committing a small
fraction of your income to protect children in need, you can help save a child and
contribute to humanity. You can donate as low as INR 500 per month.
While Save the Children appreciates monthly donations more
where you choose to donate a small
fixed amount monthly for us to be able to plan our programs for longer term, a single
can also help save a child.
You will get your tax exemption certificate within 15 days
of your one time donation (quarterly in case of regular donors, who pledge monthly
donations, after their first month’s donation). You will get quarterly updates on how you
are making a difference.
