LittleBigHelp India Trust
Work to create better opportunities for the most vulnerable children, women and communities in West Bengal.
Work and Achievements
LittleBigHelp supports more than 600 vulnerable women and children directly every single day and reaches out to nearly 1000 vulnerable families.
LittleBigHelp Homes: LittleBigHelp runs Girls’ Home and Boys' Home separately for 60 street connected and other vulnerable girls and boys. In our Home, these children can start a new life away from the street with care, comfort, nutrition, education - and a place to call 'home'.
Community Centres are run in different slum areas in West Bengal where we promote education through school preparation courses for marginalsied children and create awareness about rights in the local slum communities. We work with the local communities as well as the children to promote a sustainable development and to ensure them a brighter future away from the streets.
Skills Development Projects are run with the aim of empowering marginalised women and men financially and socially, through training on different skills such as beautician, cooking, mehendi and tailoring, electrical wiring, bike repairing, jute product production, free of cost. Women and men are provided technical and soft skills training through qualified trainers and given all round support for placements or starting their individual business.
Learning Centre for Tribal Children provide English and computer training for children living in tribal villages near Bankura. Through this project we aim to provide the opportunity and learning space to ensure improved education and computer literacy among the less privileged tribal children.
LittleBigHelp is supporting the Centre for Special Education - a school for 119 children and adolescents with special needs who would otherwise not be able to attend school or receive care. The Centre also provides a home for 15 of the older students of the school and offers vocational training and life skills education.
