How You Can Help
Golden Avatar School is more than just a school. It’s the hub of a community of talented and caring people from all over the world, who help in a myriad of ways. We have graphic designers, filmmakers, bankers, health foodists, teachers (obviously), gardeners, musicians, artists, linguists and many other folk. Really you’re all invited to come forward and participate in whichever way you feel inspired.
Here are some ideas on how to get involved. Feel free to contact us about these or other inspirations that you may have.
Some of the ways in which you can participate are:
- Teaching (These can include academic subjects as well as skills outside of the school syllabus such as English, Art, Music, Dance, Martial Arts, Yoga, Vedic Culture or anything else which you feel inspired to teach);
- Bringing old/unused items from your house when you come to India. (These can be things as simple as old clothes or stationary, which make a big difference in the kids’ lives.);
- Donating teaching resources such as old computers (in working order), maps, globes, charts, maths and counting blocks;
- Liking us on our Facebook page where you can get all the latest news https://www.facebook.com/
- Subscribing to our monthly newsletter (via our Facebook page or website);
- Subscribing to our Youtube channel for videos of the school Golden Avatar Youtube channel ;
- Sharing our Facebook posts and Youtube videos;
- Spreading the word to your friends about the school;
- Speaking to a local business, university or cafe about sponsoring Golden Avatar (you can e-mail us for more information)
Donations are obviously important as the school is run 100% on donations. Whether a one-off or on a recurring basis, any amount will go directly to help the children. We are currently in the process of constructing a new school building – the total cost of which is estimated at US$50,000. While some funds are already collected, any additional funds would be very helpful.
Donations can be made to our Paypal account (via our website).
If you are an American tax resident, you can receive the tax benefit of your donation by making your payment through our American Partner IPBYS Outreach (email@example.com) on the Paypal website (www.paypal.com). Just remember to put a note in the message section that the donation is for Golden Avatar Trust.
