Needs List

Charity - Needs ListDonate in kind to provide items for the children

For those supporters who prefer buying items themselves, here are a few suggestions which are always welcome. There are two main events during the year which really need help from our supporters, they are Christmas, when we need lots of small toys which can be added together as stocking fillers. the second is the new school year when we need a LOT of educational supplies.

Those who are flying can fill in a Luggage application form, and request extra luggage from their travel company/aitline.

Once you have filled out our lugage form with your flight and holiday details, click the SUBIMIT button which will send a request for a letter from us and hopefully one will be sent to you within 15 minutes.

If you don't receive one then please check your junk folder and if nothing has arrived within 12 hours please message us and let us know.

EducationDonate in kind to provide eduational items to the children

As we help 100+ children and young people every year we get through a lot of educational material. Each year we provide all the books and stationary that the children need and schools are very demanding with most children needing around 20 note books each, along with Pens, pencils, compas boxes, paint, sketch pens and more.

If you can help then we are happy to receive any of these as donations in kind, although just as happy to have financial donations so we can buy the tiems when required.

ClothesDonate in kind to provide health care items to the children

Clothes are really useful as the children do get through clothes quite clickly due to their outdoor living and the way the clothes are washed by beating them against a rock and scrubbing down by the local river. If you would like to bring clothes please remember that most of the children are slim so we usually require taller versions of clothes for the age. With the girls it is also important to remember that Indian girls are usually VERY modest and short mini skirts are not really suitable. Long dresses and skirts are ideal, shorts and tshirts for the boys, trousers are also good but narrow waists and long legs preferrable. Children's underwear and Football shirts/shorts are also great things to give.
