Help a poor girl child get residential care

Thank you!

This program is fully funded because of donors like you.


Every monthly donation helps more girls like Sundari with safe shelter

ACCESS' foster homes provide shelter to girls from broken underprivileged homes. Sundari's mother passed away when she was a year old. Her father, a construction worker took her to unsafe construction sites to take care of her. This became a challenge as she grew older.

She was then enrolled in an ACCESS foster home. Sundari was admitted into a school run by ACCESS. She developed confidence and started to enjoy learning. With her educational, nutritional and emotional needs taken care of, she blossomed and excelled in singing, dancing, and craft.

Sundari is now in class XII and helps the Caretaker in running the home. She plans to become a teacher to help children like her. Give girls like Sundari the hope of a better life.

About The NGO


ACCESS(Association for Community Care, Education, and Social Services) was founded to help children who are being exploited in the stone quarries of Bangalore as child labourers. At such a tender age, when they were supposed to be playing and learning, they were being oppressed; ACCESS took an initiative to rescue these innocent souls, providing them with education and health facilities.

It also takes care of the Social, Emotional, Physical, and Cognitive development of each child through a wide range of care options & prepares them to be productive adults. Various projects have been undertaken by ACCESS which includes Child Development Centers, Foster Care, Community Service, Play School and Women's Program. It takes care of women in a plethora of ways, from aiding and restoration of the women-in-crisis to providing them livelihood opportunities in its tailoring center.

ACCESS has provided daily nutritional supplements along with screening and preventive care to 700 children in the past one year. 836 children are still continuing with their schools and colleges.

This program has reached very deserving girl children in our community. Out of four girls, two are semi-orphans and two are orphan children. This help provided by GiveIndia sponsors to pay part of the school fees has given the parents a determination to educate their girls inspite of all odds. We are encouraged with the academic progress these girl children are making and it is our hope that they will rise up to all expectations.
