Student Sponsorship Program
HCF Banner Donate Now Button Send A Check Online Donations Send a Check


We have full boarding students and day students (also called day boarders) at SMD. Day students receive all the same meals, education and after school activities as boarders, the only difference is that they do not sleep at the school. Both girls and boys need sponsorship. Very few families from this region can afford to send their children to school but they greatly value education and come to Shree Mangal Dvip School and SMD Branch School for young monks hoping to enroll their children and to find financial assistance. Sponsorship will provide that assistance.

-Full sponsorship for a boarding student is $890 (USD) per year.
-Full sponsorship for a monk's education is $480 (USD) per year.
-Full sponsorship for a day student is $420 (USD) per year.
