Our UK charity
Taking practical steps towards a fairer world…
We are an ever-changing group of about ten volunteers. Some of us are young professionals. Some are working and raising families, some are busily retired. Our major task is to fundraise to keep the school running. Each year we aim to raise £16,500 – which covers salaries, rent and services, just!
There is no UK office and our admin costs are minimal. People often like the fact that almost every penny raised is spent in India on the school and its children.
