Phia Foundation is doing a great job of providing basic education to children of rag pickers in Ghaziabad. This is such an initiative no other non-profit organization has considered so far. Rag pickers children are always deprived of their basic education in the society and they needs to be supported. Hence, I would like to extend my support to this foundation.

Commitment, passion and sense of purpose is apparent in the many aspects of work of the PhiaFoundation. Their effective outcomes are informed by clear thinking and efficient organisation. The Foundation needs and deserves support to expand their reach and change the lives of even more people whose current situations and future prospects are otherwise bleak. It would be wonderful if there could ever come a time when an organisation like this were no longer relevant - and their principle of sustainability is important - but until we reach the end of the rainbow I wish them well in continuing to bring hope and promise to those who without their help would have little or none.

Phia foundation has been making a real difference in the lives of under privileged people who are being left out through their various services be it education, emergency support etc. I had an opportunity to visit their Jugnu education project in Bhuapur slums where they run 'Bridge School'. There has been a remarkable progress in their education and many of them have been enrolled to the mainstream government school. I wish they continue to support and provide them a life of dignity.
