Need guidence for a child charity organization

I am going to start a charity organization and a charity website in India. The idea behind this organization is to provide complete (16 years, 10 + 2 + 4) of education to those children for whom it is almost impossible to be educated. E.g. street beggar children in poor countries.

I don’t have much knowledge in the field of international banking etc. So, I have some questions.

In this program we don’t take many donations. My plan is as under.

Donators will invest money in a bank & from its monthly interest the child’s expenses of education, lodging & boarding will be paid.

E.g. 500 donators are ready to pay $500 for 5 years. So total will be $250000. At the end of 5 years their money will be returned to them. But they will not earn any interest. The interest will be used for the beggar child.

Moreover, I want to create trust in all 500 donators that all their money will be used directly in charity only. I mean the 500 donators will not pay me, but their money will reach directly to the child (or the child’s residential school).

My questions/options are:

1) Can 500 persons from different countries open a joint account in the bank of beggar child’s country?(I guess this is not possible)
2) What type of bank account can be opened in this situation?
3) Can I do a contract like all 500 donators give their money to me as (interest less) debt for 5 years & I am legally bound to pay them after 5 years. I will collect the money, open an account on my name & give its interest for child’s education.

I think Option (3) might be a solution.

Please give your views & more options (if any).

Thanks in advance.
