We are Paper Kite Children's Foundation, a non-profit charity working to ensure that basic necessities are available to the orphanages in the state of Bihar, India. Our work empowers the children to fulfill their aspirations and end the cycle of poverty.
Our goal is for the children to grow from love, and not fear. Fear of being forced to live on the streets and beg. They do not need to experience pain to learn.
As a not for profit charity, we are dedicated to a human responsibility - based on the belief that we are all connected. We have a responsibility to each other.
To enrich the lives of the children by providing basic needs, educational tools, and support in order to allow them to focus on their own personal growth and development. To also work in partnership with reputable orphanages and children based organizations to provide on-going support in the following areas:
