What We Do

Sponsorship

Sponsorship is at the heart of what we do. Sponsored children attend our schools all over India. Your support provides school fees, supplies, school uniforms, and more. This opportunity unlocks a new future for children and allows them to live in dignity and freedom.

Healthcare

Through our Community Health Workers, we promote health by ensuring those in need receive access to healthcare and healthcare products.

Education

We want to make sure education is accessible for children in South Asia. We help build schools and, through sponsorship, help children in need receive an education.

Subhash's Story

But when he got home, he discovered that his family had less than a month’s supply of food left.

Freedom Through Education

Samar was kicked out of his local school at age eight because he was unable to pay the expensive fees. For many families in rural India, sending a child to school is out of reach.
