Children from a Nishtha-sponsored school in West Bengal, India

We are a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization dedicated to child development projects in India.

Our organization is run entirely by volunteers, who also bear all our administrative expenses. 100% of all contributions to us from the general public therefore go to our projects in India.

Our finances are completely public and published on this website approximately every quarter.

Our mission is:

to facilitate the sustained physical, emotional and intellectual development of underprivileged children particularly in developing parts of the world.

We were incorporated in August 1998, and we obtained our 501(C)(3) tax-exempt status from the IRS in January 1999. Donations to us are fully tax-deductible under IRS laws.
