What we do - divali lamps

It costs just £15 a month to cover the cost of one child’s place* at Bright Sparks (or £12 plus Gift Aid). Making a regular donation of this amount, or any amount, is  amazingly generous and useful. It keeps essential funds flowing to the school. It pays for teachers, rent and other costs. It keeps the whole place running.

Click the justgiving link. On the right side of the webpage click Donate. On this page, you can  select monthly and set up your regular donation. Please use the Friends of Bright Sparks form below to let us know, so we can track your donation.

*Sponsors who commit to covering the cost of a child are not linked to individual children – your donation is used to benefit the whole school. You can stop it at any time.

Whether its £10 or £100, every donation helps keep the school running. You can through Justgiving, adding Gift Aid if possible.

Bright Sparks School in India welcomes volunteers with skills to share. In the last couple of years, volunteers have helped by:

  • Running an in-service staff development course
  • Supporting kids’ English speaking, reading and writing
  • Running yoga sessions for the whole school
  • Collecting information and images to aid Bright Sparks UK

You can read about one visit here.

Sponsoring a named student at secondary school costs just £15 a month (£12 with Gift Aid).

Some parents would love their child to go to a nearby English-medium secondary school run by an NGO. 

Each year we organise UK sponsors for these individual students. Under this scheme, sponsors undertake to pay school fees for the student for five years (£15 a month). Parents pay the annual registration fee. Sponsors are able to follow the progress of their student.

If you are interested, pleasecontact us.
