2021 Matching Campaign-A Place at the Table
Double your Impact!
When you give for tables and benches, your donation will be matched dollar for dollar by several generous donors up to $11,000 through December 31, 2021. When we raise $11,000 we can give $22,000!
12/28/21 UPDATE: $3,520 remains in matching funds. (Two orphanages have been funded! One remains.)
Let’s give 80 more children a place at the table
In India everyone takes their shoes off before entering a home. That custom helps ensure cleanliness and shows respect for the owner. But in three orphanages, the children must eat and study on the floor. Our children deserve a place at the table. You can help provide that for these children.
The average cost per child: $68.75. These tables and benches, desks and chairs will be built to withstand the wear and tear of many children.
- PARTIALLY FUNDED – Katihar Boys’ Hostel in India needs 80 desks and benches for the children so they don’t have to sit on the floor to study (photo above). Total cost: $7,138.
- FUNDED – Nambikkai Illam in India needs 15 dining tables and benches for 80 children (photo below on left). Total cost: $7,540.
- FUNDED – St. Anthony’s Orphanage in India needs desks and chairs for 160 children in their study hall. Total cost: $7,305.
