Our Mission

To provide for the daily care of orphaned and other under privileged children. It is our objective to provide for the daily care and other fundamental requirements, including schooling, food, lodging and other day-to-day needs of the children on a long-term and ongoing basis. Currently we support and provide for the following;

  • REACH by the The Visram Foundation located at Survey No. 22, Vadgaonshree Pune 411 014, India.
  • Assist with other causes related to our mission such as “Mission Smile”.

About Our Charity

To seek out, explore and execute, to the best of our ability, the fullest potential in each and every child. To achieve this objective, we provide for the day-to day needs, education and extra-curricular activities in order to fulfil or exceed the expectations of life. Our children will be representatives of the societies from which they come and, hopefully, one day will impart their knowledge upon those societies. It is our intent to educate children between the ages of 6 and 18 years and to provide them with the fundamentals required to pursue a professional career.
