Without your help, none of our programs would be able to serve those in need. Thank you for your generosity.

For all donations, 100% of your gift will be sent directly to the PSOC. No percentages are taken out for administrative costs so you can be confident that every penny will go towards the humanitarian efforts in India. Donations are tax-deductible.

You can specify a program or child for one-time donation instead of sponsorship. Please include a message to direct your personal donation at checkout.
You can set up a monthly donation at our Meet the Children page.
