We are a UK registered charity which aims to give disadvantaged children in Goa the opportunity to change their lives. We focus on education and currently support around 350 children each week.

Our overall objective is to break the cycle of poverty of disadvantaged children and young people in Goa via the support of education, food, health and welfare. We currently support around 500 disadvantaged children through our 5 projects. Our Mango House project supports around 170 children Monday to Friday through its pre-primary school, afternoon tuition classes and feeding programme. Our Colva project provides afternoon tuition classes and a snack to around 20 disadvantaged children and our latest project, based at Chimbel, supports around 170 children through a pre-primary school and afternoon tuition classes. In addition we provide around 250 school bags and uniforms each year through our Bag4School and Back2School projects which provide all the uniform and study items which a child requires to attend school.
