Children to Children Gifts Project

In the year 2016, we launched a project called “Children to Children Gifts Project” in Partnership with a reputed Charitable Relief Organization Samaritan’s Purse International. Samaritan’s Purse donates us these boxes packed by children with the help of their families of donor country and we undertake the responsibility of Importing and distributing them to needy children, irrespective of caste, color and religion. The purpose of this program is to provide a Gift Box to poor and needy children of India. The gift boxes contain soft toys, balls, School stationery like drawing books, pens, pencils, and some personal items like hair clips, combs, tooth brush, ribbon, socks etc. Oftentimes, poor children of our country do not have access to new toys in their growing up stage as their parents cannot afford to buy one for them. This project gives them back a little bit of their childhood and enables such children to get a gift box packet containing new items, specially packed according to their age group and gender delivered into their hands. One child, one box, once in a life time is one of the key principles we follow in these distributions. We implement this project in partnership with like minded and trust- worthy organizations in different states of India under the supervision of our State and Regional representatives.
