Helping Children In a New School

CWEF works with schools to assist needy widows in the education of their children studying in those schools. Currently CWEF is working with 29 schools in 8 provinces of India. 100% of the donations received reach mothers because the tiny overhead expenses are covered by the interest earned on emergency funds donated to CWEF by some members.

New and existing donors from US and Canada can propose a new school be added if the following criteria are met:

  1. The school Principal agrees to facilitate the process of providing assistance to mothers whose children are studying at the school.
  2. CWEF and the donor who proposes the school can arrange new donations for assistance to mothers whose children attend the school.
  3. The proposing donor volunteers to help with the simple process involved in putting the money in the hands of mothers as outlined below.

Proces of Putting Money In the Hands of Needy Mothers

Once a new school is approved by the Board of CWEF, the assigned volunteer for this school and the office administrator of CWEF establish contact by email/phone with the new school. After this contact, the following steps are undertaken once every year.

  1. The VOLUNTEER emails new application forms to the school before July 2.
  2. The SCHOOL completes the application forms and emails the completed applications to the volunteer before August 7.
  3. The VOLUNTEER uses the received applications to prepare the first Principal’s Excel Sheet (PES) for the school.
  4. The VOLUNTEER emails the PES to both the general manager and the office administrator of CWEF before August 15th
