LeapForWord is a GuideStar India certified NGO for financial transparency. We are FCRA certified hence eligible to accept contributions in foreign currency too. However only donations in INR are tax exempt u/s 80G of the IT Act.
We constantly remind ourselves that “Donor money” is expensive but “Donor Faith” is Priceless. While donor money helps LFW execute its different projects, donor faith in us ensures that we stand TRUE to the reason for which we started this Effort in the first place. True measure of our success is when at some point in time during your association with LFW, you too start believing that this work is as much yours as it is ours.

What do we need your help for

LeapForWord reaches out to regional language school teachers and invites them to join a 10-day WhatsApp-based trial engagement during which a dedicated back-office team shares Videos (concept, classroom etc…), Teaching Aids, Quizzes etc. This trial engagement is designed so as to give the teachers a first hand experience of the kind of support they will get throughout the academic year if they volunteer to teach.
At the end of the trial period, we reach out to teachers and ask them if they are willing to use our techniques in their respective classes to make their children English literate. Those who agree are formally inducted into a year-long & structured engagement called The Teacher Support System

Our conversion rate over the past 2 years has been ~30% i.e 30% of all teachers who join the trial engagement agree to teach in their classes. Our target for the next 2 academic years (’18 – ’20) is ~25,000 teachers or 5 lakh students.
The cost of outreach & support per teacher is ~Rs. 350 i.e every Rs.350 of contribution enables 1 teacher and through her at least 15 students!!!

Total Requirement = 25000 * 350 = 87,50,000
Funding confident of being arranged (committed) = (40*18000) + (25000*20%*600) = 37,20,000
Deficit = Rs. 50,30,000
