Founded in 1970, Our Children partners with over 35 Child Welfare Institutions in Mumbai to run development programs and activities. These institutions house children below the age of 18 years who are orphans, from broken families, destitute or
in judicial custody.
Our Children(OC) acts as a bridge between a child in an institution and the outside world, opening up opportunities which enable children to grow, learn and succeed in facing the challenging world ahead. OC’s mantra has been to provide every Child with a chance to be a Child and we follow a very simple philosophy - Strive to provide as many opportunities as possible to as many children as possible.
We emphasize on not only providing basic essentials to children but also on imparting education, teaching life skills and mentoring them to decide their course of destiny.
We are essentially volunteer based. Everyone associated with OC puts their best foot forward to make this world a better place to live in for the underprivileged. Over the last four decades, many of OC’s beneficiaries have come forward and become volunteers which is their way of giving back to society.
