My Name is Kumar Foundation

At My Name is Kumar we partner with our Indian sister NGO to achieve our mission to alleviate poverty in the Londor community and provide access to education for children who would otherwise be forced onto the streets to beg. We believe that education is the key to improving the life of children born into poverty and begging. We also believe that children need role models to look up to; if their parents are given opportunities to improve their lives through learning new skills and alternative ways to earn a living, then the whole community can break the cycle of poverty.
