What Do We Do

The Foundation sponsors the education of underprivileged children, primarily blind but not exclusively, and orphaned, enabling them to earn a living for themselves in the future. It seeks to give opportunities to these children to fulfill their potential: live life with dignity and deal with issues of life with confidence.

 

The Foundation aims to raise funds by holding fundraising events and through generosity of donations.

 

We will continue to sponsor a child as long as they successfully complete each year of their studies. We will be able to increase the number of sponsorships as funds increase.

 

The foundation aims to sponsor students, as well as providing funds to undertake vocational studies, thus enabling these children to make a positive contribution to their society.

 

The Gian Foundation is a non-governmental organisation that aims to:

 

  • Provide education to nominated children
  • Run a “talking book” library
  • Provide Reader and Writer services to blind students
  • Promote cultural and recreational activities
  • Provide Books, Braille paper, slates and styluses
  • Arrange social rehabilitation of the students by providing a range of services; e.g. Audio Typing, Receptionist, Basket Weaving, Chair Caning etc.

 

We publish an annual newsletter, which details events undertaken and the names of the students sponsored, and note their progress. If you would like to receive one, please let us know.

 

We give life to your donation as YOU make a difference to these children’s lives.
