2) The Beena Singh Memorial
This fundraiser is in the fond memory of Mrs. Beena Singh, Board member of PPES and wife of Founder, Mr. Virendra Sam Singh. For those who knew her, she was one of the warmest people with a compassionate heart. She had a very special place for all the volunteers who came far from their homes and countries to volunteer at Pardada Pardadi. All the funds raised through this fundraiser would go towards improving the guest house of Pardada Pardadi where all the volunteers and guests stay during their visit.
3) Health and Hygiene
Support the recently opened Health Center, salary for school nurse, health education, medical camps and the expansion of facilities. This program also includes medical care for girls, medicines and supplies, vaccinations and hygiene supplies (toothbrushes, toothpaste and soap) for the girls. The Health Centre is also open to our other direct beneficiaries and their families.
4) Give a Gift for the Holidays or Special Occasion
This year give a gift that really matters. Give the gift of education and opportunity for girls to become a productive members and leaders in their community. No need to worry about the size or color or style or whether they have one already. No shipping costs or returns or driving to the mall. Please note the name and address of who the gift is for when making payment and we will mail them a gift card indicating who the gift is from and the amount.
5) General Fund
This is the general operating fund for the school to pay teachers and staff salaries, hire and train teachers, run important educational programs for our students and keep the school buildings and facilities open and running 12 months a year. We will use your gift where it is needed most.
6) PPES Green Initiative
A second Community Hygiene complex is underway, due to the success of the first one that was built in 2011. Families are making use of bathing and toilet facilities, located in Madargate, the very poorest community in the region. The Green Initiative also includes the Solar Lantern project which has provided 200 families with solar lanterns. Solar lanterns reduce fire and health risks and provide much brighter lighting than a candle or fuel lantern provides. Girls can read and do homework and women can work after dark.

7) Nutritional Enhancement
Approximately 1,400 girls are fed 3 meals a day, 6 days a week at school. Adding more protein, fruits and vegetables to the menu is needed to reduce malnutrition, improve the overall health of the girls, and reduce the risk of learning disabilities. The meals cost Rs. 12 per day per girl (USD 54 per girl per year). Rs. 6 per girl per day (USD 27 per girl per year) will take care of their requirements of daily fruits and vegetables.
8) Endowment Campaign
Pardada Pardadi Educational Society is undertaking an ambitious program to raise an endowment, to ensure the continued operation and expansion of the school. We must secure our mission to educate and empower girls, the future generations of women in rural India. Your gift matters.
