    Help a Poor Child

    Charity Number : 1003359
    Overall Rating

    The charity was founded in 1980, helping children in different parts of Asia and Africa. And through children and family assistance programs, we’re giving hope to children and adults affected by extreme poverty. Most of the children we work with are deprived to an unimaginable degree, as there is no education, little food, endemic diseases, high levels of disability, parental rejection and working from as early as 5 years of age or begging/scavenging for their survival. There is no help for them and no hope either, as children’s affairs have no priority.
    Our objective is to help these poor & needy children grow up healthy and educated. Today, we have built a school in The Gambia and have over 200 children attending classes. We also have plans to start, later this year, a similar programme in Kenya, East Africa.
