GNI is the only organization that I am aware of that does 24/7 care for children and funds their education through college. My experience on the GNI trip far exceeded my high expectations! The trip was well-organized and covered a wide range of backgrounds. I appreciate that when someone sponsors a child with GNI, 100% of the money goes to that child. It is financially sound and a great investment into the lives of these kids who would otherwise have no future or hope. I recommend checking out their website and seeing for yourself the difference that you can make in the life of a child.

I have worked with many organizations offering the same type of assistance as Good News India and I find this organization to be exceptional in its devotion to these less fortunate ones. They provide comprehensive life care including completion of a college education for its student benefactors. This has a profound preventive impact in the area of human trafficking as well as a future impact for the socioeconomic development of each individual being helped by this organization. My professional meetings with Dr. Rahman have always exceeded my expectations in professionalism and personal selflessness in his dedication to those who are hopelessly trapped in poverty. I would highly recommend Good News India as an effective and transformative NGO for your donations.
