Book Drive – 2016

What is it?

Every year R.K. Foundation provides notebooks for around 700 schools in the rural areas of South India before the new academic year starts. The children of these schools are from an economically poor background. Hence they cannot afford to buy books. Watch this video to find out more. Video Link(Click here)

What are we doing?

Keeping the dire conditions in mind, we at R.K. Foundation have started a crowd funding project. We are looking to raise money to provide 1,30,000 books for this year. So, you might wonder why are we raising money via crowd funding for the first time. Previously the Book Drive was successfully financed by Multi National Companies in Bangalore. But due to the change in management and other such reasons this year we have not received any funding this year. The need for notebooks has not disappeared therefore we decided go for crowd funding.

What do we need the money for?

We need to buy around 1,30,000 notebooks for this academic year so that the 30,000 children in these schools have the bare minimum requirement fulfilled for education.We are also looking to provide them pencils(60,000), sharpeners and erasers(30,000 each). We are going to provide a combination of Single Line, Double Line, Four Line, Maths Books, Long Note Books based on the class in which the child is studying. The per child/per class requirement is as shown in the image below. The cost per Long notebook is Rs. 26 and all other books are at Rs 13.50 each.

R.K. Foundation – Our Story

An innate desire to give back to society unconditionally was the driving force that led to the birth of R.K. Foundation by two like minded family friends. The idea was to utilize the collected funds entirely to the deprived target population without incurring much administrative expenses or overhead costs. For the founding members, it was thus purely a voluntary service and the satisfaction they derived from their work was their reward. The idea was to seek and fulfill the fundamental needs of the deprived first. The organisation thus identified strategic gaps in projects that were run either by the government or by other not for profit organisations and sought to bridge these issues.

The idea was ‘to do’ rather than to think of ‘how to do’ and ‘what to do’ in closed door sessions. Thus as problems and bottlenecks of the deprived communities came to the Foundation’s notice, attempts were made to resolve them. In this manner grew a number of projects that are running successfully today. The founders continue to work with the belief that no effort is futile even if it brings relief and some happiness to one life, because each life is as precious as that of our very own.

The Foundation works through a number of partner Civil Society Organisations ranging from orphanages, old age homes, government schools etc. It operates in 5 States of India viz. Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Manipur.
