Sponsorship of a child for her studies and food:


Every child has a Right to Health and Right to Education. With Damien Social Welfare Centre (DSWC), Dhanbad, you can make it possible. With just Rs 800/- month, you can gift a child good health, proper education and better living condition.

You can join DSWC and make a difference in the life of girl children of leprosy patients. Sponsor a girl child Today.

Nirmala School, Govindpur, a unit of DSWC provides education to 487 girls children. DSWC got them from leprosy colonies in and around Dhanbad or found living on begging at railway platforms. Few of them are orphaned and some of them have faced abuse. These children are brought first of all to protect them from sexual abuse, many of them face, back in their leprosy colonies, secondly to prevent these girl children from early/child marriage and thirdly to educate them so as to assist them to shape their life and come out of the vices cycle of poverty.

You could be part of this mission. What they need is someone to believe in their dreams and give them an opportunity for a better future. Through DSWC’s Child Sponsorship program, you can be the Ray of Hope in a girl Child’s life. Just Rs 800/- per month and child has better life by having access to Good Health, clean drinking water and proper education.

Today’s children are tomorrow’s India. If we take care of these children, these children will take care of our India tomorrow. It is more so when it comes to taking care of a girl child. Every child is looking up to person like you, who can shape her life.

Would like to touch the life of a needy child every month?

Whom to Help: You decide which child to help, because all the 249 girl children in the hostel have their parents as leprosy patients and most of their parents are either begging or rag picking
