AWARE reaches out to children in deprived communities throughout India by using education as a way of transforming their lives for the better. It also provides street/runaway children and orphans with a protected childhood, so that they can go on to make well-informed decisions in life.

In loving memory of Joe...
Joe was a brilliant cameraman who made The Aware Foundation films for us in India, alongside Paul Kenyon. Joe did this out the kindness of his heart, for free. He wanted to help these children have a voice and tell their story, in the hope that they would get the help that they so desperately needed.
Joe sadly passed away on 22nd February after a long illness. He worked all around the world for the BBC, but India was always his favourite place to film. He leaves a wife, Lucy, and a son, Milo.
We are so very grateful to Joe for his wonderful support to AWARE and the children in our care. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this very difficult time.
2022/2023 hostel project is underway...
Our plans for 2022/23 are to launch 10 hostels in Dang reaching out to over 400 children and in addition 4 Child Resource Centre (CRCs) - which will revive 20 Self Help Groups (SHGs) reaching out to 800 families to help them improve their economic conditions
We have already made huge progress... We opened 5 of the 10 planned hostels on 26th September 2022 and are currently supporting 172 children – but this will soon increase to 250 children. The official launch of the hostels is on Monday 3rd October 2022.

Jayesh visits projects being supported by AWARE
Jayesh (founder of AWARE) has spent the last few weeks visiting some of the projects that AWARE supports in India. He visited two schools in South Gujarat district of Narmada. The children are 6-14 years old, and are accommodated in hostels on the same campus, these two schools are in the second most deprived and unprivileged areas in India.
He then went on to visit the Dang project which provides shelter, education, nutritious meals and a safe environment to children who's parents migrate for 6-7 months of the year. Over the migration period we sheltered 470 children across 5 homes last year. Such a wonderful environment is created for these children that many of them don't want to leave when their parents return.
It’s wonderful to see first hand what a huge difference AWARE funds are making to so many young lives. Thank you for all of your support.
