A Quick Note from Tichnor Charles, CEO & Secretary / Treasurer

* Finance is the source to sustain our work and if neglected will surely affect about 675 children.

* At present, ‘we need funds to raise funds’.

* Please go to the Funding Section of our website for more details.

* We have been advised to consider converting our residential child welfare to non-residential. While we do agree that it is a good idea, we must clarify that children admitted by us are only those who have no other alternative, are living in stark poverty and do not belong to any particular area or community. e.g., Where can the daughter of : a convict, a victim of child abuse, a street walker, an under the bridge or pavement dweller, an alcoholic, a terminally ill or handicapped parent/s go?

 

 

 

 

 

* The answer is nowhere! If we don't admit them it means growing up in poverty, socially handicapped and continuously exposed to criminal intent, the ramifications and effects of which I am sure you can imagine and understand. There are many reports and surveys, which probably indicate otherwise, however is this visible or tangible? No!

* I must also add that we do have a non-residential programme for about 375 children who live in the shantytowns (slums) around the Institution for whom we provide free education from Std I to X.

* What we take for granted like the love of a family/community, three meals a day, clean drinking water and a hygienic & clean environment is not available to these children and therefore we provide and enable them to develop by giving them all this including a happy childhood.


"WE ARE THEREFORE ONLY TRYING TO alleviate THE CHILDS SUFFERING & continuing to live IN POVERTY & SQUALOR"
