Family support in Mumbai

  • The Families support program is intended to provide financial aid to very poor families in order to allow the children of these families to go to school. These families are selected on different criteria. Our program managers visit these families often to verify that the money donated is correctly spent for the children’s education and nothing else. We also check how the children are performing in school and their motivation. 
  • We are currently helping 1 family of 5 people.
