  • Care for physically and/or mentally challenged children
  • Rescue and rehabilitation of children in vulnerable conditions

By participating in Kalakaar 2015, you are supporting projects such as Door Step School in Maharashtra, India.

Door Step School believes that if a child cannot go to school, let’s take the school to the doorstep of the child. DSS seeks to educate illiterate children at these construction sites through their uniquely designed programs so that these children can have the opportunity to be a part of the formal education system. The goals of DSS are to conduct classes in basic literacy for children in the age group 5-15, educate children on basic hygiene, and provide mentorship in order to inculcate good values.
