We are a Canadian Charity that connects with some of the most disenfranchised individual, families and small communities in Southern India and in disaster struck areas around the world.
In South India we have nine programs in two thematic groups improving local health care and local education. We work with several registered Indian Charitable Trusts to assist individuals, families and small communities to create opportunities afforded by better health and education. We make the most impact by directly supporting people through our series of medical and educational programs.
Worldwide we provide relief by improving health care to people trapped in environmental or humanitarian disasters. We work through accredited Canadian Organizations like The Canadian Red Cross.
We are all volunteers and every dollar donated to our programs results in a dollar being spent in South India or with our worldwide partners. We invite you to contribute your time, skills or financially to support our various programs.
