Primary and Secondary School Scheme (VJES)

Primary and Secondary School Scheme

Our Primary and Secondary School Scheme, or the Vidya Jyothi Scheme meaning "Knowledge and Light, enables children to attend school and get an education which will provide a vital pathway out of poverty for them and their families. By sponsoring primary school students through the Vidya Jyothi Scheme, you will help to cover their school fees, uniforms, books, transport and food.  

You can sponsor five students through the Vidya Jyothi Scheme with a one-off payment of £75 (£15 per student).

You can also sponsor a 'classroom' of 30 students. If you have any queries please contact us at


We are registered with the Fundraising Regulator. Further information about how we use your money and how we work with the Fundraising Regulator is available here

Your donation will be worth a total of £75.

If you opt-in to Gift Aid this will increase the amount by a further £18.75, an overall total of £93.75.

If you are a higher rate tax payer then you may be eligible for 20% tax relief on the total value of your gift, including Gift Aid. This means the actual cost of the gift to you, after reclaiming higher rate tax, will amount to £56.25 per year.
