LittleBigHelp is a Danish NGO (non-government organisation) who work to create better opportunities for vulnerable children and women in West Bengal, India.
Through its 22 different projects, LittleBigHelp provides direct support to more than 1100 vulnerable children and women, and indirectly to more than 1300 vulnerable families by securing basic child rights such as education and protection, along with women’s empowerment through skill development - every day.
With 11 million street-connected children in India LittleBigHelp focuses its efforts on preventative interventions pushing for an end to abandonment and a life without access to their rights through it’s 7 Community Centres in slums which create awareness about rights, entitlements, health, hygiene & the importance of education.
The Boys Home provides long-term homes for 35 street-connected boys. These boys start a new life away from the street with care, protection, nutrition, education – and a place to call ‘Home’ until they reach 18 years of age.
It is especially important to offer help to girls in India, as they are extra vulnerable. Child marriage is not uncommon, and girls from socio economically vulnerable backgrounds are at great risk of being trafficked, raped or abused. In October 2014 LittleBigHelp opened a long-term home for 25 street-connected and other vulnerable girls.
SKILL DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS
At LittleBigHelps’ 10 Skill Development Projects marginalised women and men are empowered financially and socially. With a focus on tailoring, cooking, beautician training, jute production, mehendi, bike mechanics and electrical wiring LittleBigHelp equip them with the skills to start an income generating activity.
LEARNING CENTRE FOR TRIBAL YOUTH
This centre supports 75 youth’s coming from poor socio-economic families living in tribal villages through English training and basic computer skills to promote and assist with education initiatives at the household as well as community level.
As a Danish Company with its factory in Kolkata, India, we believe it is essential to give something back to the community we work in. By purchasing any dbramante1928 product, some of the profit it generates is donated to supporting activities that change lives.
A little help from you is a big help for others and while we cannot help everybody, we believe that everybody can help some. We are proud to be supporting this project and your support will get us a long way!
For example; for as little as 5 DKK / €0.67, the equivalent of one third of the average cost of a shop bought cup of coffee, can;
- Provide 3 meals for a hungry child
- Deliver 1 health check for a child
- Support a child with 3 days of school preparation
It’s in our DNA. We believe great design is driven by great values and while we can’t do everything we are committed to help make that difference for those in and around the areas we work in. And we do.
Thank you so much for your support.
