Charity of the Month
Project Sunshine is a non-profit organization created in 2002 for the rehabilitation of slum and street children. It provides day care, education and food for around 157 underprivileged children. School attendance is mandatory with tuition covered by the Sunshine Project. The success of the Sunshine Project and its children stems not only from the right balance of a nurturing and encouraging educational environment, but also the people behind the project including the support of the volunteers, sponsors and generous donations. Project Sunshine provides the children preparation and registration in schools, before and after school care facilities with tutoring help, three meals a day, school uniforms and supplies, personal hygiene training, and emergency medical care.
