Adoption of Slums

Geeta Nagar, a hub of sprawling hutments is situated on a prime land in the heart of South Mumbai and has a population of over 40,000 slum dwellers. Helping Hand in Service, a registered Trust with its primary focus of covering formal and non formal education, health care and vocational skills training for under privileged children, youth and young women has adopted over a hundred families.

SAGE Foundation has started a fund raising drive to impart quality education to the children and vocational skills to their families for self sustenance. Nutritious meals are provided to the children. For most parents this is the only enticement to send them to school as they cannot afford even one square meal a day for their children. The biggest donor for the slum uplift program for SAGE Foundation has been Buy1Give1 .
