Activities in a Nutshell

Scholarships. We provide financial access to education of underprivileged children through our “Sponsor a Child” scheme. Beneficiaries are selected through an application process on a means cum merit basis. We follow through our children’s education to Class 10 (Class 12?) subject to child performance. We also augment this support, where possible, to providing hostel fees, uniforms and books. On a selective basis, we sponsor youth up to graduation.

Provide Hostels. We provide physical access to education in remote and insurgency affected areas of North East India through hostels, schools and transportation.

Enabling Centres. We provide our children and youth access to information concerning further education, career and employment options. This is done through our enabling centres in the areas where we work. Through these centres, our volunteers will also facilitate access to entitled government schemes and opportunities in the private sector.

Health and Nutrition. Education is inexorably linked with healthy childhood and adequate nutrition. Where possible, Sunbird Trust provides basic health services and a nutrition scheme to its beneficiaries.
