Our special thanks goes to Amity College Boys High School, as they raised 69% of required funds for the initiative. In addition to Amity College, we also extend our appreciation to 42 other donors for their support towards this meaningful project. Collectively, their idealism and generosity improved the living conditions of the youth living in the complex.

As our partner, Bedir Trust and its self sacrificing administrators also deserve full credit for carrying out this crucial humanitarian project. Previously, orphanage buildings were in a run-down condition. After the fundraising; bunk beds, mattresses, bed sheets and pillows for 140 orphans were purchased.

Providing children access to basic needs; toilets and bathrooms have gone through renovation while water supply and solar panels were also installed at the complex. Other works and purchases include; fixing of floors and ceilings, fixing of walls and paint, establishment of an outside living area, electrical work, wiring and general carpentry for timberwork.
