Sponsorship Program

Mahabodhi Sponsorship Program :

This is a program to contribute and make a meaningful and durable change in the lives of deserving children. Hundreds of poor and needy children are getting education and all other facilities, which mean new life because of our sponsorship program in Mysore, Diyun and Tawang. We request you to kindly join in this endeavour with compassionate heart and sponsor a child or a monk or an elderly orphan.

  • 1. One girl – 480 US Dollar/ 30000 INR per year.
  • 2. One boy – 480 US Dollar/ 30000 INR per year.
  • 3. One elderly man or lady – 480 US Dollar/ 30000 INR per year.
  • 4. One monk – 360 US Dollar/ 22000 INR per year.
  • 4. One nun – 360 US Dollar/ 22000 INR per year.

This is not any ordinary program. The goal of every effort is to provide an education that supports intellectual as well as moral and ethical aspects in life. In other words, the teaching of Lord Buddha is an essential part of every Mahabodhi student’s upbringing. In this way, Mahabodhi aims to help the children to become responsible minded adults and facilitate them to get a good modern school education to face their lives in fast changing world.

Through sponsorship, you may also be in contact with the sponsored child and you will receive at least 3-4 reports every year so that you can follow up the progress. And many of our sponsors come and spend time with the children, which also give them lot of confidence and encouragement. We happily welcome you to come and stay in any of our Mahabodhi centres.

We thank you from the depth of our hearts and express deep gratitude for the most valuable and meaningful help and for being together in bringing the light of wisdom and compassion to many children.

Mostly on the birthdays of our children some presents, such like cards, letters and parcels, are delivered to us. Of course this is - for the birthday child - always a very big and joyful surprise! But often this happiness is veiled by a cloud, because in many cases the parcels reach us, in India, incompletely. Not rarely the gift parcels are examined for “stolen goods” and whatever appears useful will be simply purloined. This happens not only with parcels, but with letters as well. They are opened by trespassers. If you want to send something to your sponsor child and if you want it to reach safe, we request you to consider the following points:

Don’t send costly presents!

Your sponsor child is happy with every attention he/she gets, the financial value of the gift is unimportant. Suitable are goods such as t-shirts, hairclips for girls, crayons, pen cases, and colouring models (E.g. mandalas) – Accordingly to the age. Pack everything attentively and robust! Most suitable you pack the single goods in plastics and glue it proper. Use a robust cardboard box and fix it from all sides with glue.

Don’t send cash!

If you want, we can organize a suitable present for your child here in India. In that case you simply transfer the favoured amount of money to the account of the Mahabodhi organization in your country. Don’t forget the name of the child and the reason for transfer. After the receipt of payment we will buy a convenient gift. This procedure has established well in the last years.

You can find in the respective postal address the contact section.
