WELCOME TO THE KANJI PROJECT WEB SITE
The Kanji Project is a small UK charity run entirely by volunteers. It raises funds to give poor children in India the chance to have a good education and provides a safe place to live for destitute children. The charity also works in the community, helping very poor people to improve their living conditions. On average, 95% of the charity's income is used to support this vital work.
The Kanji Project is looking for one or two additional trustees to join our friendly team.
The trustees, who usually meet in Brighton & Hove, would be particularly interested to hear from people who could help us develop our use of social media and our website or who have an interest in financial management.
*** Latest News from The Rose Sisters on the Villages
The children's Parliaments in the different villages are functioning well.
In Oravadhavadi, the middle school did not have a compound wall and people were bringing in their cows and bullock carts inside the school. This made the school very dirty. The Children's Parliament handed in a petition and since that happened a compound wall has been been built and now the campus is clean. :
- Since the majority of people do not have a toilet at home, they use the open fields for toilet purposes. Hygiene is taught to students and now the Government has announced a new scheme giving 12,000 rupees for families where a toilet is built in the home.
- To improve environmental conditions a tree is being planted at each house.
- Waste Collection. The children have been collecting waste papers and other usable items from their villages in order to sell them and give money to the needy people.

Our exciting new project is now up and running! The Day Care Centre for children with learning difficulties is now named the 'Sunshine Day Care Centre.
