SAVE-UK with a grant (£54,165) from the Lloyds TSB Foundation of Scotland , established a Vocational Training Centre in Kolkata in 2005 in collaboration with CSP. Initially it started training young boys and girls from poor background leading to certification and placement in plumbing, Computing, electrical work, security services and housekeeping. At present it focuses on computer training for young boys and girls.
Trained health workers visit weekly all the schools run by CSP for street children, to give medical assistance and information about preventable infectious diseases. SAVE-UK has been contributing regularly to CSP to run a primary health care clinic in a slum in the Monohar Pukur area in Ballygunge, Kolkata since 2002.
Working with CSP
All grant making organisations have their own ways of working, but almost all of them approach the grant making decision process in a relatively similar way.
All funding organisations want to know certain pieces of information such as how your organisations values align with theirs, your track record and the impact that your proposed project will make on the community.
The very first thing a grant making organisation will consider upon receiving your application is that both the purpose of your organisation and your project matches their current interests.
