Manjunath Kalmangi

I am associated with Vidya Chetana (a project of Youth for Seva-YFS) for quite long time (may be from year 2011).  I was also part of YFS as volunteer at the beginning when it was started during year 2007.  I know Sri Venkatesh Murthy ji in person and also know his innovative idea of building volunteers for seva.

My interest also grew to be associated with seva over the period of time and was looking for Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) who work in the area of education that truly wants to bring change in the society.  One of the factor I had observed with many NGOs is there is huge “administrative cost” that is incurred, which effectively reduces the amount reached to the needy.

I wanted to experience myself by associating with Vidya Chetana to support education needs in the society.  As my choice was to support more “Girl” children, I happen to choose list of girl children provided by Vidya Chetana portal along with my own list who were in need of such support.  I am very happy to say that with minimum administrative cost, Vidya Chetana team is able to ensure maximum amount reaches to the needy as per their education requirements.

With Vidya Chetana’s portal, I am able to know list of children who are sponsored, their regular progress reports and also facility to download amount paid receipts.  The team also provides updates about donor-donee meeting, annual event (like Chiguru), etc. through e-mail and on phone call to me.

I would like to appreciate Vidya Chetana team and Youth for Seva team for their appreciable work towards society to bring positive change
