NGO Profile :
India Sponsorship Committee (ISC), established in 1967 in Maharashtra, works towards the development of underprivileged children and women by providing education and vocational training.

ISC works with marginalized families for the growth and development of children from these families. ISC has always had a special concern for the empowerment of the Girl-child and runs number of programs for the same.

Initially, the ISC entry programs were in primary education as a basic need and right, since a large number of children were out-of-school with many ending up as child-laborers. However, over the years as the need for education became self-evident and most families sent their children at least to primary school, ISC began shifting focus to other areas of empowerment. 
ISC works with children of 0 to 18 years old with the objective of overall growth & development of child, especially girl child. ISC has Involvement of 13 local schools and 5 communities with good results covering more than 700 children annually. This has given ISC a good entry point to reach out to more children.

Their initiatives are as follows:

  • Antar Bharti Balgram: ISC’s flagship project in Pune, the campus includes a children’s shelter, secondary school and Industrial Training Institute (ITI) that trains older children in welding, electricals & technology to ensure their future rehabilitation.
  • Urban Community Development Project: The project focuses on promoting and protecting the rights of socially & economically disadvantaged children. The four main components of the project are Aarambh (Childhood Development), Vidyadeep (Education Program), Sabala (Gender Sensitization and Empowerment) and Saksham (Vocational Courses) and serve to promote child rights and female empowerment.
  • E-Teach: The program aims to help vernacular primary schools in Maharashtra teach English as per the current syllabus. The primary objective of this program is that students become fluent in English, become more employable upon graduation & have the option of pursuing higher education.
