Asha Santa Barbara has been supporting kid's center project by helping with the teacher's salaries, books etc.
Our mission is to empower under-privileged children with basic education and help them
get integrated into mainstream schools for formal education.
In the year 1986 Ms Dutta with the help of a group of personalities formed a
philanthropic organization for the betterment of deprived children in her community. She
first started a day-care center for generating financial support, and thereafter started the
Kids’ Centre as a free school. A few kind hearted persons extended their helping hands
to fulfill the minimum requirements to operate the school. Asha Santa Barbara is currently the main funding source for this project. In addition, Saroj Nalini, Rotary
Club of Outrum and a few individual Rotarians are providing some help.
