£300 a year, just £25 a month, pays for full time boarding for a girl who would otherwise be destined to live a bleak, destitute life. A £50 one off donation can cover the cost of rescuing a child from living on the railway, helping to reunite them with family or find alternative, safe accommodation.
By donating you fund and sponsor the education of underprivileged and vulnerable children at the residential boarding school in Odisha, India and also help to support SOCH (Society for Children) who rescue children from the railways.
