My Name is Kumar Foundation is a charitable organisation based in the UK, Netherlands and India. We provide a home and education to 37 children who would otherwise be begging on the streets of Southern India.
My Name is Kumar work directly with a begging community called ‘Londor’, where levels of substance abuse, violence, child marriage and illiteracy are particularly high. As well as providing the children from this community a home, support and education we also work alongside the community to improve their lives and break the cycle of poverty. We do this through a number of projects; from building sustainable homes and installing solar power, to lessons in vegetable growing and providing a small micro-finance bank for the women of the community.
