We often think of Charity As an Action. But I think of Charity as a State Of The Heart.

our vision to serve is like a light that illuminates through all over the world.

1) To provide accommodation, food, clothing and excellent education to the orphans

2) To impart the kind of education that gives them a broad vision of life and create a sense of belongingness with the whole world.

3) To mold the orphans into productive citizens by providing not just academic, but also skills in social, sports, spiritual and arts.

4) To spread Smile, Education, Self-reliance, and Self Esteem to everyone who has been deprived of it.
