FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
 

What is the process of enrolling children in education?
Our Social workers visit slums and motivate parents to send their children to Sugam Ngo education centres. The children are enrolled in the centres in the slum itself or in a nearby centre. The child is selected on the basis of an economic criteria, namely that the family income should be less than Rupees 2,500/- per month; other factors taken into consideration are the family size, number of dependents etc. We first enroll the child and begin its education and monitor the child for regularity of attendance and parents' interest for a while before it is assigned for sponsorship.

How many children do you select from a family for sponsorship?
First we consider the annual income of the family. The criteria is that it should be between Rupees 1,500/- to 2,500/- per month. We select one child only from a small family for sponsorship. If in a large family there are more dependents, we give sponsorship to a second child and if the third child is a girl we may sponsor her also as a special case. In order to promote the girl child education we give priority for girl child. "Girl child project", in Sugam Ngo exclusively takes care of girl children's academic course and vocational training. We also give priority to the single parent child and the handicapped child.

How do you use the sponsorship amount and what is the parents' responsibility?
The stipulated amount of annual sponsorship under Integrated Child Sponsorship which is Rupees 9,000/- to Rupees 9,500/- does not suffice. We make good the deficit by asking the parents of the children to contribute around 20% of the cost as we follow the policy "Nothing is for free". This leads to their participation and ensures serious involvement; ultimately, they emerge as stake holders and tend to have a strong sense of commitment.

Do the Sponsored Children correspond with their sponsor parents?
Yes. The sponsored child writes to the sponsor parent and also sends a New Year Greeting Card with his/ her activity photograph in the month of December/ January of every year. As and when the sponsor parent send special letters/ queries/ greetings the sponsored child is encouraged to respond appropriately. In case the child is not able to write, the teacher responds on his/ her behalf along with a drawing made by the child.

Will the child come to know that I am sponsoring her/ him?
The child knows that she/ he is a sponsored child. She/ He comes to know about the name of the sponsor parent once they receive Letters/ Greetings from the sponsor routed through the Sponsorship Division. As a matter of policy we do not hand out the address of the sponsor.

Can I correspond with my sponsored child?
Yes, you can. If your sponsored child is capable of writing well, she/ he will respond or the concerned teacher will respond on the child's behalf. This will be coordinated by the Marketing Department.

I may sponsor a child. If I stop sponsorship after a few years will the parents of the child approach/ harass me? Do they know that I am the sponsor?
The parents or the child are aware that the child is sponsored but the address of the sponsor is not given to them as a matter of policy. In the event of continuous communication between the sponsor parent and the sponsored child, the child comes to know of the sponsor. Hence, we suggest that communication be routed through Sugam Ngo , which will avoid any undue demand from the sponsor. It is at your discretion that the sponsorship support is continued or stopped. Hence nobody except Sugam Ngo will correspond with you as your address is not passed on to any one.

Will I receive regular information about child's development/ activities?
We will keep you informed of the child's progress from time to time. Any special queries by the sponsor will also be replied to by the child/ Sugam Ngo as the case may be.

Can I send gift/ money to my sponsored children? Can I also send gifts for other children of my sponsored child's class/ school?
As a matter of policy we do not encourage sponsors to send gifts/gift money to their sponsored children as it creates envy and disappointment for those who may not receive something similar from their sponsor parents. However, if you are desirous of sending a gift, you are welcome to do so. Gifts in kind may undergo pilferage in transit. In case gift money is sent in the name of Sugam Ngo we shall purchase gifts as per your directives/ child's desire and present to the child on your behalf.
If you want to send gifts to the sponsored child's class/ school we will get the sponsored child to distribute the gifts on your behalf. Photographs taken on the occasion of gifts presentation will be sent to you with details of expenditure.

Do you work in Delhi only or outside in other states also?
We are working for children from slum clusters of Delhi and catering to their educational requirements and overall development. Further, we are also working in villages of Gurgaon, southcity 1 block and the neighboring areas.
