We need your help to be able to run the school. The advantage of a small voluntary organization, compared to big international organizations, is that no money is needed for administrative costs. 100 % of the contributions goes to the ones helped. The association subsists on membership fees and donations. We also arrange different kinds of events to collect money such as flea markets and restaurant day events. All donations go directly to the school. The founders of Canelipuu cover all related costs out of their own pockets:   bank charges, yearly fees for the internet site, and their own visits to India. We ensure that 100% of your contributions to Canelipuu will reach the school. The yearly fee to the association is 50 Euro, and we are very happy for any donations. Many of our friends have chosen to support the school with 10-20 Euros per month. The money has so far been used to renovate the school, pay salaries for teachers and coordinators, and cover costs for lunches, schoolbooks, materials and school uniforms. You can donate money with an account transfer:
