About us >> Constitution and Governance

Constitution and Governance

 We are an organization that works primarily with destitute, abandon, and severely underprivileged children.  We strive that they be alleviated from their level of poverty, abuse, and Godlessness.  Through education and awareness, we are able to help these people come up in their life, and to pull themselves out of poverty and abuse that they are into.  


Our school caters to these children and mostly children from Quarry villages in and around Bangalore.  In these areas children were previously employed as child laborers breaking rocks.  Working in these quarries is the most grueling of tasks which even governments these days don’t allow even their criminals to do.  After all this, they get a salary of just around 1 dollar per day.  We have embraced this task of educating such children that when they grow up they can break the barriers of illiteracy, tear down the walls of poverty, and shatter the chains of abuse and bondage.  Through education they will have equal opportunity as normal children, they will grow up to be brilliant young people. Who can in return influence their entire community.  We believe that kids have the right to dream, play, love, be loved, and do all things that a normal child would do.
