Children who have been playing barefoot in the dust and dirt of life in the back streets of Bangalore, enter into a new world when they are enrolled in a bright and cheerful Building Blocks Learning Centre. From their first day, they are immersed in a total learning environment, with many educational toys and teaching aids. They learn the basics of organised community life, discipline and hygiene when they sit down to their nutritious daily school meal. They have excellent, highly qualified and dedicated staff who are focused on helping them break out of their impoverished background, and develop into valued members of society as citizens of modern India.

For less than £1 per day, you, or your school, church, club or business group can transform the life and future prospects of a 6-year old child by sponsoring their ongoing education. You can follow their progress and achievements in our monthly newsletters, and look forward to their school reports in your email. Let us help you to set up your own fund-raising project to finance a sponsorship, or to support our General Scholarship Fund.
