Our Mission: Giving Children a Childhood
Together We Do Make a Difference
In the last sixty years DCCW has touched the lives of over 200,000 under-privileged children in and around Delhi, through its programmes and services - providing a home for lost / abandoned children, medical care, nutrition, rehabilitation of special needs children, vocational training and facilitating education. This is no mean feat. It has only been made possible by partnering with people and institutions who believe they can bring about a change in the lives of these children, helping them achieve their potential and go on to lead productive lives.
Our Success Stories
