We are

Children of the World (India) Trust Bombay is a non-profit, non-political, secular Charitable Trust, established in India since 1982. We work with underprivileged children and their families, regardless of their caste, creed or religion.

Our Vision is to enable every child to attain the right to well-being and happiness. We share the same goal as our parent organization - Children of the World Norway - to work in the best interests of the child. Through adoption and foster care for the children at our Child Care Center, on the one hand, and through our Sponsorship Program on the other, we provide education, health and nutrition to underprivileged children, to empower them to reach their full potential and become responsible citizens. We also support families and the elderly members of the community, through income generation activities and health interventions, with a special focus on those diagnosed with major illnesses.

Our residential center - Vishwabalak Kendra - at Nerul, Navi Mumbai, welcomes and shelters lost, abandoned or relinquished infants and children with the aim of placing them within loving and nurturing families.
