Little Acorns


In 2005 our third Day Care Shelter was inaugurated in the coastal village of Calangute, in the north of Goa. El Shaddai Charitable trust - Little AcronsTourism is the main source of income in this area and during the tourist season people from the neighbouring states migrate to Goa in search of livelihood. The children accompanying them are often sent out to work in the market. Some beg, other pick rags or rummage through bins for items that can be recycled and yet other work as hawkers. The lives of these children are dismal to say the least.

Little Acorns, the Day Care Shelter at Calangute serves as a safe haven for the street children. The children come off the streets into the Shelter for food and medical attention. Some come just because they are treated well and made to feel special. The fieldworkers who work from the shelter spread awareness in the community regarding the Shelter and so more and more children are referred to our care. We have currently few slum schools in various slum areas spread out in Calangute, Candolim, Arpora etc.

We have around 50 to 70 availing the benefits like formal & non formal education, coaching & tuitions classes, Day Care facility etc. We provide daily lunch packets called Manna Khanna for the street people and beggars. Education is a tool that opens doors to a brighter future and the Day Care Shelter at Calangute is doing everything in its power to see that the street children have a bright one. Food, clothes and basic medical care is given to these children. The shelter runs purely on donations and so your help is of much worth to keep the shelter and the great work going. Education is provided within the Shelter and at Formal School.
