All the activities of Friends of Tribals Society are supported by donations received from our benevolent donors in India and abroad. We are registered under FCRA to receive foreign donations. With the support of our benevolent donors, we have been able to maintain a steady growth in promoting one-teacher schools & other developmental projects for the welfare and upliftment of villagers and tribals.

Immediately on receipt of donations, a receipt is issued to the donor along with a certificate for exemption in Tax.

Schools are allotted to the donors and complete information regarding the allotted School is updated in the website also. The donors are given user ID number to enable them to visit the website to see full details of their Schools.

The donors are encouraged to visit their schools periodically which is termed as ‘Van Yatra’. Such visits are arranged by Ekal Central office at regular intervals.

In India, corporate sectors are approached to invoke their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to sponsor schools.
