Make-A-Wish India started granting wishes in 1996 to children between the ages of 3 and 18 years, living with life-threatening illnesses, irrespective of their socio-economic status, caste, race or religion. Since then they have fulfilled over 39,243 (as on 31st December 2015) wishes across 11 divisions in India. The Foundation is dedicated to granting the most cherished wish of these children.
IIMPACT provides educational opportunity to girls, from socially and economically disadvantaged communities of India, who traditionally have no access to schooling. Their aim is to break the cycle of illiteracy that girls from such communities are mired in. This is done through local community-based Learning Centers, where they get meaningful and stimulating education up to Year 5 and are guided to their entry in to mainstream education.
Established in 2003, IIMPACT has identified a specific focus, developed a clear strategy and proved the delivery model in terms of social outcomes as well as scalability. Educating the Girl Child has been shown to transform the community.
- IIMPACT has benefited 60,000 girls in 11 States of India.
- Almost all girls who complete the Class V program go on to middle and high school
- 100% of donor funds go towards educating girls.
