Foundation for Initiatives in Development and Education for All (IDEA) is an NGO that was originated by a team of qualified and experienced social scientists and social workers, to deal with the problems in education and developmental issues of the marginalized people, realizing the need for adopting a holistic approach to minimize school dropout. Their activities include Education assistance, Teacher training, Business development training and digital literacy. Started in a slum, its presence has spread out to 17 communities and 26 villages in Maharashtra where they have improved the lives of 10500 children, 3700 youth, and 4500 women. Such efforts of social uplifting activities had captured the attention of the Excellence Dhyas Foundation when they honored IDEA with the Social Excellence Award. Additionally, their quality of reporting was also commended by the Guide Star India Platinum certification who felicitated them with the Accountability and Transparency award. All these activities and achievements of IDEA bring them closer to their mission of providing equal opportunities to underprivileged sections of society and assist them in their holistic development.

Expenses incurred in the education of children ,Cost incurred to provide books, stationary and uniforms
This program was created to reduce the school dropouts amongst underprivileged children. Many parents, despite being poor are determined to provide their children with a good education. They enroll them in private schools even though the fees are higher.However additional expenses like cost of uniform, stationery hit them hard and these become the reason for the child dropping out of school. IDEA gets referrals from parents and schools for sponsorship support. After evaluation IDEA enrolls eligible children in the sponsorship programme. The children continue to receive support until they complete education.To ensure that parents maintain responsibility, IDEA provides only partial support. The social worker monitors the progress of the child throughout the year. Various programmes like life skill sessions, exposure visits, etc. are also planned for the child. Donate to an educational sponsorship and save a child's future.
