What does EDUCO mean?
- Educo is a Registered Irish Charity, set up three years ago by volunteers in Ireland, to collect funds to bring children out of poverty through education. The charity has managed to collect and distribute some €600,000 to date, and to buy or start building four schools in Mumbai and Kolkata, through a variety of charity balls, marathon sponsorships, and celebrity dinners, as well as direct sponsorship. A fundamental policy is that any administrative costs are met by the founders/organizers, so that 100% of all contributions go directly to schools in India. Educo has provoked considerable interest in Ireland. There have been articles covering its activities in 'The Irish Tatler', as well as a slot on RTÉ's 'The Afternoon Show', and a mention in The Irish Times. Educo Elders. A group of Educo supporters set up to help and support the main Educo effort. Educo Elders operates mainly as an ad-hoc fund-raising group, and focuses entirely on schools in the Mumbai area.
