Global Giving (International)

Important Note: Globalgiving is temporarily experiencing payment transfer issues with Indian banks and FCRA accounts. Please use one of the other options on this page. We will update this page the moment these issues are resolved.  Global Giving is a charity fundraising web site that gives social entrepreneurs and non-profits from anywhere in the world a chance to raise money to improve their communities. They work to build an efficient, open, thriving marketplace that connects people who have world-changing ideas with people who can support them. They undertake a rigorous vetting process for all organizations on their platform, and also facilitate accountability and transparency from the organization towards the donor.  So, we are delighted to share that VIDYA has secured a permanent position on the Global Giving Platform for our school programs. We want to grow and sustain these programs for children and adolescents in underprivileged communities by creating opportunities that bridge gaps. You can help us by donating a small amount through the website or by spreading the word around. Scroll below for direct transfers through ICA. Give Now With Global Giving
