How can you help?

Building Blocks is an organisation committed to giving each and every child a fair chance in accessing education, no matter their social standing.

They provide essential education for children from slum neighbourhoods in India, offering them a well-rounded education that enables them to be on par with middle and upper-class children. These are children who would otherwise not be able to go to school. Before the centres were set up children from slum neighbourhoods would have been unable to go, the time, effort and cost was something their families simply could not afford. Due to the dire need for free early years programmes Building Blocks constructed their first centre in 2005, and since then 9 more centres in different parts of India; educating  821 children, and is in the process of opening more. 

As well as essential academics, they also teach hygiene, character and social development, technology, physical education and more. These learning centres literally open up a new world for these children. For the first time they are able to wash their hands in clean running water, they are taught how to use a toothbrush. Things that seem so simple to me and you: like using coloured crayons, are an unbelievable luxury for these children. 

The Good News

INTO Giving are proud to be supporting Building Blocks with a £7,500 grant: this money will go directly to sponsoring the education of 15 girls for the next year. Because of the money raised by our wonderful employees, staff, student, donors and everyone in between these girls will be given the best start in their ongoing education.
