2016... what a year!
2016 was an incredible year for Kumar and his friends.
We more than doubled the number of children whose education we support, formally launched our community development projects and went on our first ever trip together outside of Tamil Nadu. It was also the year more of you became involved in our work, with lots of you signing up to become child sponsors and donating to our crowdfunder.

EDUCATING CHILDREN, EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES
My Name is Kumar supports children and families from begging communities in Tamil Nadu, Southern India.
We enable the education and development of children who would otherwise be forced onto the streets to beg and we help their families to break a cycle of poverty so that they may realise a life beyond begging.
