You have probably come to this page because you would like to help by offering your services in a direct and practical way. I can empathies with you, because I had the same thoughts some 15 years ago. My first thought was to go to Ethiopia, but as fate willed it, I ended up first in Kadambogachi, West Bengal and my only regret was that I could have done more.
Sishmon Foundation is planning to establish a community based care with a network of local volunteers providing direct individual care and support. It has some very basic accommodate for visitors and short term volunteers and if you are willing to totally finance yourself (Airfares, Insurance, food etc.) and could help fund raising the children would be grateful for your assistance.
Dr. Yunus, the Nobel Laureate from Bangladesh, has seen a sharp reduction in poverty rate in recent years with the help of Micro Credit and other initiatives. "If this can be done in our country, it can be done in any other country" he said.

Sishmon Charity Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of neglected children in remote communities. It has been our experience that humanitarian relief seldom reaches the distant areas or village members, yet sometimes they are the ones who need it most. Through experience, planning and careful research, we identify areas where change can be made through a little sacrifice and great vision. We visit these areas and assess the local needs and we work with the people and other volunteers to build a more sustainable life and future, by providing necessary skills training, education and the required facilities.
Please join us in this effort by becoming a member of the Sishmon Charity foundation family.
