Help Global Volunteers Support the Homeless Children at Dazzling Stone Home for Children in Chennai, India

Nothing warms the heart like a child’s smile. But in the 20th century, children the world over had little to smile about.

In the past 50 years, six times as many people died from malaria, TB and AIDS than from all the wars during the same period, and most of them were children.

This year, 12 million children under the age of five will die (33,000 a day) from preventable diseases.

This is the reality of the world today. Most of humankind cannot afford, or does not have access to the health care required for a minimally healthy life.

That’s because half the world’s population — three billion people lives on less than $2.00 a day. (Source: UNICEF)

It can seem unconquerable. But before you decide there is nothing "one person" can do, consider what can be accomplished when we all become that "one person."

Global Volunteers works to improve the lives of the neediest, and the most vulnerable people in the world — children.

By serving on a short-term volunteer team, or making a tax-deductible contribution earmarked for children’s projects, you CAN make a significant difference in the life of an "at-risk" child.

Your donation will directly benefit the children like the ones at "Dazzling Stone" Home for Children outside Chennai (Madras) India.

Fifty-two homeless children are clothed, fed, housed, educated and nurtured at the facility in cramped, but secure quarters.A partner in development with Dazzling Stone, Global Volunteers has committed to providing three balanced meals for the children and staff each day, all year long.

Global Volunteers teams work with the children — helping them with their studies, playing with them during free time, and expand the love and care they receive from the staff. Future teams will also help improve the facility on newly purchased land.

Your tax-deductible contribution of $25, $50, $100 or any amount you can afford to Global Volunteers will be earmarked specifically for the children of Dazzling Stone. Future reports on this site will account for how your contribution is used.
