Don Bosco Children's Shelter

Hello, thank you very much for visiting our page. We are Team Surya, MBA students currently completing our program from St. Mary's College of California. We are working with Don Bosco Balprafulta in Mumbai, India, and the mission of Don Bosco is to work with the abused and neglected street children in Mumbai. This organization assists in raising awareness around children's rights as well as giving these children education, shelter, love, a sense of belonging, and rehabilitation in order to brighten their futures. We are trying to help raise money for this organization to help these children build a solid foundation to enrich their lives. Every little bit helps! Thank you very much, and God Bless!
