Care & Share Charitable Trust

This registered charity organization is solely dedicated to educating impoverished and underprivileged children. It came into being in the year 1997 when Carol Faison and Noel Harper found the organization at Vijayawada. The idea of beginning such an endeavor sprouted in the mind of Carol Faison, a citizen of USA, when she was visiting Andhra Pradesh and had decided to sponsor a child. When she went back, she was able to amass contributions from a lot of relations for sponsoring every child living in a boarding home at Manginapudi, on the Bay of Bengal.

This organization is dedicated to the education needs of more than 6000 children living below poverty line in Vijayawada. They focus on homeless children, children of sex workers, physically challenged children, and abandoned newborns. They have built about 9 schools in different slums which are fully operational. They also assist in the counseling of children in Observation Rooms and have rescued number of HIV+ and AIDS inflicted orphans. They have built a village by the name “Daddy’s Home” and are in the process of building another such project for HIV+ children named as “Butterfly Hill”. They run kitchens and milk Programs for the children and provide for their medical requirements as well.
