Big Hug Foundation is a registered charity dedicated to providing shelter and education for underprivileged children.
The children we support are all destitute; some are orphans and others are runaways escaping a lifetime of neglect and/or abuse. Big Hug aims to relieve these children of hardship and break the cycle of poverty by providing them with clean, safe shelter, a real education and above all, a family.
The well-being and development of the children we work with will always be at the forefront of everything we do. We will always base our decisions and actions on what the children need and what is in their best interest.
At our first partner project, Cornerstone Children's Home (based in south India) we currently support 30 children and young people. The goal of the home is not to be an institution but to provide a loving and comfortable family atmosphere for the children. Click here to read more about the work we do at the home.
Big Hug has been supporting the rent for the home and the children's educational needs for four years. We are currently building a permanent home for the children on land that has been donated to the Cornersone Trust.
