Giving Children their Childhood
Founded in 1970, Our Children partners with over 35 Child Welfare Institutions in Mumbai to run development programs and activities. These institutions house children below the age of 18 years who are orphans, from broken families, destitute or in judicial custody.
Our Children(OC) acts as a bridge between a child in an institution and the outside world, opening up opportunities which enable children to grow, learn and succeed in facing the challenging world ahead. OC’s mantra has been to provide every Child with a chance to be a Child and we follow a very simple philosophy - Strive to provide as many opportunities as possible to as many children as possible.

The sight of underprivileged children begging for food prompted a group of young like-minded individuals to come together to alleviate their sufferings. The group joined a couple who had engaged themselves in collection and distribution of excess food from wedding parties. This spark lead to the formation of Our Children as an NGO.
Their core purpose is that of bringing love, happiness, and identity into the lives of underprivileged children
