Prayas Sponsorship Form

Here is our detailed sponsorship form if you are interested in donating

What our donors say?

I got engaged with SMCT "Ek Prayas" as a sponsor around 7 years ago when I got to know the entire thought process behind its motive to help with education and all round development to deserving kids who do not have much privileges in life. I am short of words and emotions when I see the achievement of these young people in different aspects of life whether it is education, entrepreneurship, art, dance, IT and many more. It is just amazing and I feel like, when I can retire soon and become a volunteer and share the rest of my life with the team. The word "EK PRAYAS" is so apt and this is actually an absolutely selfless prayas by Mr and Mrs Nayyar and many volunteers in nurturing these young generations into Gems. I am proud to be part of it and I always feel I am not doing much lesser than I should be doing and can I also do "ek Prayas". My best wishes to all in SMCT.

SMCT, to me is the place where an under privileged child can bring a positive, lasting, permanent change in their life. It is a rare place where students are the focus and remain stake holders even after graduation, to carry the benefit to the next generation. The ancient philosophy of “Tell me and I forget, show me and I remember, involve me and I understand” comes alive in the students through the dedication of Poonam and her team. Donating is simple but transforming lives needs continuous courage and commitment. My association with SMCT over the past years has not only enriched me but also brought an understanding of the real value of Saraswati here, which represents intelligence, consciousness, creativity, education, enlightenment and power

What our volunteers say?

It give such a rich feeling to be a part of SMCT, I was introduced to the organization around 10 years back. I still remember the young innocent, student of class 10, whose ever growing quest for learning said it all…the grip was so rigid and the bonding between students and teachers was so pure that I never could break the association with SMCT. Over the years our centre has worked hard at all corners for over all development of the students …. and the hard work of one and all is showing through the allumini settling at prestigious position in the Society…Cheers to team SMCT, Students and Teachers…for whom….” Sky is the limit” because victory is their profession.

SMCT is an organization, which thinks beyond educating children to achieve their full potential. It stands for transforming lives, not only for the children but also for the volunteering teachers. I have been in the line of teaching for last 25 years. As an administrator & teacher I always struggled to cover the syllabus than uncovering the syllabi. Here I get full freedom to teach children creatively, help them think out of the box and equip them with life skills which actually matter in life. I consider myself fortunate to have joined Ek Prayas. The founders, Mrs & Mr Nayyar are so selflessly dedicated to support children that their passion rubs into all associated with it.
