Words from our Founders: If there is a will, there is always a way. That’s how this story begins. Boundaries do not stop us from recognizing the remarkable challenges that many face around the world. Although living in Hong Kong for the last 20 years, we have constantly worked towards our life-long mission, carrying out various projects across India. Our vision is to build a world where every child grows up to reach their full potential; healthy, educated and protected. Every day we are working towards turning this into reality; trying to be there for every child wherever they need us. We strongly believe that every individual has the right to survive, thrive, and work towards all their dreams. We recognize that we are merely one drop in this ocean of hope and possibility. This is what inspired us to create Traceable Giving, a platform that brings together similar drops, like ourselves, to come together and wash away the obstacles that prohibit children from fulfilling their potential – now, and for the years to come.
Mentor our Projects that drive change. They show us the road that leads to growth and development of our initiatives.
