It takes only Rs. 6500 per child to ensure a better future for those who are engaged in the hazardous occupation of bidi rolling, for a whole year. We accept donations under our Child Support Program. Funds received from individual donors are used for providing direct support for the children engaged in bidi-rolling in Murshidabad district, West Bengal.
