Support a Project
These are specific activities we choose from time to time to support. Contributors can donate as they are able and the funds will be allocated to the specific project.
Currently we are working on projects in urban slum areas in developing countries. We see this as a major issue for many countries as rural agricultural workers leave their villages and move to the cities searching for work.
Typically we have a project in Kolkata, India, the objective of which is to improve the socio-economic conditions for 90% of families of targeted children in Sahib Mahal, Kamar Math slums in Kolkata Metropolitan city by 2021.
