In India, we work in both formal and non-formal education centres – such as railway platforms – providing a daily meal to children who are disadvantaged by caste, disability, gender, or HIV status.

We offer these children, who may never otherwise see the inside of a classroom, the chance to learn in a safe and welcoming environment.

Our work

We work in some of the poorest, north-eastern states of India including Bihar, Orissa, Kolkata, Chhattisgarh, and Jharkhand, and have a number of projects in the Delhi area.
