No part of any donation received is used for administration costs. All administrative expenses are borne by committee members. Every penny that is donated reaches the children directly


Subashini
DOB: March 28 2000

Subashini is a very bright child whose family is too poor to educate her. Her father is a construction worker and her mother is no more. If we do not help her, chances are that an intelligent mind will be lost to child labour. Help us to educate her. We would like to see her as a doctor or engineer in the years to come. Wouldn't you?
