Help us to raise awareness & funds

In case you wonder:"Can we really make a difference?"....

Do you sometimes think: " My efforts are not able to make any difference, because there are way too many people in need and the problem is too overwhelming"? Then remember that none of us can fix all the problems in the world. It is, however, already worth our efforts if we can improve the life of one child.

We asked the question "do we really make a difference" to some of the children of our programs in India. Click here to read their response. You'll be amazed.

In case you wonder:"But I don't think I have any special can I help and make a difference?"....

By volunteering some time, each of us, including YOU, can make a big difference on the lives of others! The inner satisfaction and richness gained from this process is far beyond your expectations.
Even when you think that you don't have the right qualifications to help, then just sit down for a minute, read the inspiring Indian story about 2 pots (click here) and realize that each of us has unique abilities, and an enormous potential!

We always welcome volunteers, and are always looking for new ideas and suggestions, including new ideas for fundraising projects! You too can make an incredible difference in the life of so many children, who are so appreciative of our efforts to help.

    • food and drinks
    • a slide or movie presentation
    • a silent auction
    • a "date" auction
