in the career pathways program


More Child profiles will be added soon!  


what your $35 per month covers

100% of your monthly gift goes to cover your child's participation in the Career Pathways Program.

She'll receive:

  • Nutritious meals
  • Education
  • English tutoring
  • Training in basic computer skills
  • Tailoring training    

When your sponsor child goes as far as she can in her education (passing or failing 12th class), a plan will be developed for her to attend a college degree program, or a career skills training program.  Your monthly sponsorship will then go toward those costs until she has completed the program and gets her first job.  

Your sponsorship has a life-changing impact on your child.  Because of your investment, she has the chance to end the cycle of poverty in her life.  

When you sign up to become a sponsor, we'll send you a confirmation email immediately.  Then, within 48 hours, we'll send you a personal email with more detail about your sponsor child, including info about updates and the opportunity you'll have to communicate with your sponsor child.

Please Note:  There are some non-basic secondary education fees, career skills/college degree program costs, and housing costs that aren't covered by your sponsorship.  These additional costs are covered for the entire Career Pathways program through Illuminate India fundraisers, or by private donations.
