For Offline/Direct Transfer/Wire transfers :

Government of India has very strict regulations governing foreign donations to charitable organizations working in the social sector in India.

Please help us comply fully with these regulations:

ALL foreign donors are required by law to give us their full name and address. As documentation proof of this, we require a clear copy of the donors’ passport, front and back page, clearly showing name and full mailing address. This must be emailed to us at when initiating the transfer of funds

On the remittance form please state that these funds are for “charitable education & care of underprivileged children”.
