An apeal to donate in Welfare schemes

We are happy to inform our devotees and friends that we are about to launch two new welfare schemes for the service of the poor and needy. Swami Vivekananda was of the firm opinion that education is the panacea for all the evils of the society. Hence, he laid so much emphasis on education. As a humble effort towards promoting education, we are starting two new welfare schemes from April, 2009.

We wish to distribute free milk to some school going children and expectant mothers, in all one hundred beneficiaries. Each will be served nearly 200 to 250 milliliters of milk everyday in the evening at our premises. The cost of milk per beneficiary per day works out to nearly Rs. 5/- including sugar, distribution charges, etc. The annual cost would come to Rs. 1,800/- to Rs. 2,000/- per beneficiary. Hence, we are launching an endowment in the name of Holy Mother called “Sarada Milk Endowment”. Those noble-hearted philanthropists who wish to participate in the scheme may donate a sum of Rs. 25,000/- towards this endowment which would take care of one child or expectant mother for all time to come. The amount may be paid in one or more installments depending upon the convenience of the donor. You may sponsor as many beneficiaries as you wish.

We wish to award scholarships to hundred poor and meritorious students studying in classes IX, X, XI and XII. The annual scholarship amount would be Rs. 2,000/- per student. Hence, the annual amount disbursed would be Rs. 2 Lakhs. For this purpose, we wish to create an endowment titled “Sarada Scholarship Endowment”. Those noble philanthropists who wish to participate in this scheme may donate a sum of Rs. 25,000/- which would take care of one scholarship i.e. one student. The amount may be donated in one or more installments depending upon the convenience of the donor. You may institute as many scholarships as you wish.

We have targeted an endowment of Rs. 25,000/- per beneficiary in both the schemes assuming that the rate of interest per annum would be 8% and thus the investment would fetch an income of Rs. 2,000/- per annum.

We invite all noble philanthropists to participate and ensure the success of both the above schemes. You may also contribute partially for the endowments (minimum Rs. 5,000/-)
Yours in service,
