April 2017 – Kiran Charities
The donation of April 2017 goes to:
Kiran Charities is committed to educating the forgotten children of India. Their focus is on providing a world-class education that shapes and transforms students from socially disadvantaged children to confident global citizens.
Kiran Charities, Inc. was formed to improve the education of impoverished children by providing on-site assistance and financial support to schools in India that serve this population. The mission of Kiran Charities is to give a confident vision to the poor children through good education.
They are assisting primary and higher secondary schools in India. These schools mainly serve orphans, abandoned children, slum dwellers, scheduled caste and tribal children, as well as the handicapped. Many of these schools were started and are now managed by the Sisters of Charity of the Sacred Heart, who have dedicated their lives to living among and helping, the poorest of the poor. Often, these Sisters stepped in to create schools where none existed to serve children of all faiths who had nowhere else to turn. Together, they are providing a ray of light for thousands of bright, eager, and deserving students currently shrouded in the darkness of poverty.
