Who We Are

We are a Registered Charity, No. 1074935 which helps those who care for and educate the children at PUSS in Odisha, India and we also help support the work of SOCH, which rescues runaway children from the railways of India.

We set up our charity in 1992 to support a school for destitute children in Orissa (now officially known as Odisha) which is one of India’s poorest states. Our board of trustees all volunteer their time and expertise, so all the money we raise through regular donations and fundraising goes to support the children!


What We Do

We help fund a boarding school for 300 girls who have been abandoned by their families or are from severely disadvantaged backgrounds. We also support a rehabilitation centre and several teams of social workers who rescue runaway and abandoned children from the railways in Odisha and help to return them home or otherwise provide safe accomodation and support. We do this with fundraising events and with support from our wonderful regular and one-off donors.

We cannot provide the support we do without help – please consider becoming a regular donor. Every penny we raise goes to the children! Our trustees are all volunteers and when supporters and committee members visit Orissa regularly, which they do, they do so either on other work or are self funded. None of the money we raise is used for this purpose.
