Charity ProjectsFunded by charitable donations; we run schools and welfare projects for underprivileged children in Goa. We aim to give vulnerable and unwanted children the hope of a new start; using education as a tool to break the cycle of illiteracy, poverty, ill health, and child labour, which exists amongst the slum children of the migrant workers who make their way to Goa in search of jobs, money and a better life. As well as education we also provide nutritional, medical care and contribute to the children's social wellbeing, working to build a child's confidence; allowing their natural character to develop, giving them the opportunity of living and working as part of a civilised society. Ultimately we aim to register children with the local state school, continuing with our support by providing a meal after school, their uniforms, books and other school equipment, as well as continuing with their medical and social welfare needs.
