All the children are first generation literates: their mothers are housemaids and fathers, unskilled labourers.

Programs

Our support extends to the following: Paying the children's school and college fees, Free Books, uniform, school bag, shoes, and other stationery items, Free vaccines against life threatening diseases like MMR, Hepatitis B, and Typhoid. Giving free study skills training with the help of dedicated volunteers, and running free hobby classes in Dance, Drama and Art with the help of special faculty. These efforts originate from the belief that every child deserves a holistic development. Celebrating their birthdays on the last Saturday of every month Creating happy memories by organizing trips and fun outings Creating economic independence by starting bank accounts for all the children and their mothers. Sensitizing the children and encouraging them to participate in live projects like segregating paper and plastic, recycling them, door to door canvassing of the same, and inspiring the neighbourhood to join this movement. Identifying the children's dominant intelligence so that they get a job that is closely related to their strengths thus leading to maximum productivity and mental well being. Conducting Life skills classes. Counselling the children and preparing them for life in mainstream society In addition to this we also provide training in computer skills.
