Million Dollar Smiles! :)


With a healthy body comes a happy mind. With this conviction, our organization is currently working for 41 Indian villages in the foothills of the Himalayas. We transform destitute rural youth by providing them not only quality education but also medical care & nutrition - all for free. In our journey of 15 years, we have impacted over 700 children and their economically disadvantaged families. Your contribution to our cause would be deeply appreciated.

Each of our 575 children hail from poor homes with unsanitary living conditions. In our care, they are vaccinated for various diseases common in the area. Deworming, eye tests, ENT checks and subsequent corrective measures are undertaken. Since anemia is widespread, iron tablets and sanitary napkins are provided to the girls. Oral hygiene is a priority.


Although we provide blanket health care facilities to all children under our care, our organization has no streams of income other than valued donors like you. Your contribution would add fuel to our efforts and together, we would be able to plant a flashy smile on our children's faces!

Long-Term Impact

Our current project would provide essential health care to 575 kids. Along with the academic exposure they receive under our care, they will aim to enter a mainstream life and pull themselves and their families out of the poverty-stricken conditions they were born into. Having understood the pain and challenges of the have-nots, these children will grow confident and healthy to challenge status quo and follow the motto they are being nurtured with - Life is for Giving.
