TARA, an Indo-French project, works for primary two goals:. child protection and their empowerment. Working in New Delhi for the past 11 years, TARA’s mission is to protect children from vulnerability and abuse while providing them with a quality life environment. This becomes assured with the quality education that is provided to them at standard secondary schools.

To provide individual care to each child, TARA has three homes; TARA Girls, TARA Boys and TARA Tots. Children at TARA are then placed at each home, based on their age and gender for special protection and security. To make them self-reliant in the long run, TARA Big Birds comes into picture. It is an especially curated programme for young adults who are now ready to enter the world.

To prevent children from ending up in institutional care, TARA has an Outreach Centre in a vulnerable community of South Delhi. Since the beginning of the lockdown, TARA has distributed food and hygiene products to the underprivileged community of Saidulajab, providing 14 000 meals per month (2 meals a day for 50 families).

Don Bosco Ashalayam is an organization that supports marginalised youth in Kolkata, by providing them with education and professional training so that they gain social integration through employment.

In partnership with Decathlon Foundation, the French sports equipment supplier, and Mr Christophe Plais, a French resident of the city organizing their skill development, these youth are customizing diving masks, with 3D printed parts, to turn them into breathing masks, which are then distributed in the city’s hospitals.

The Annai Velanganni Orphanage

The Annai Velanganni Orphanage was established in Puducherry in 1981 by Andrea Gispert to care for abandoned and orphaned children and to impart education, in a family atmosphere, aimed at making the child autonomous.

Emphasis is laid on educating children as well as teaching them French. The children are placed in the best schools, including the Lycée Français International de Pondichéry. Activities are organized to develop the children’s creativity. Preference is given to sheltering young girls.

The Annai Velanganni Orphanage is financed through donations and sponsorships. Supporting one another in times of crisis – like the one the whole world is currently going through – is one of the ways to help others as our sponsors do.
