Further directly or indirectly facilitating rehabilitation work in the long run of the students going higher up in the ladder of education through our trust and to establish then as citizens with self-help without deviating into anti-social life style; thereby establishing healthy living for the families of poor and underprivileged. We want to extend our economic and social help not only to the children and teen age but to the adults and women (with problem of senior citizen and addiction). With few words our mission is to help the disadvantaged children and people in distress.
