The vision of Darjeeling Children’s Trust (‘the Trust’) is to:
- Provide money and support to improve the opportunities for the education of children and young people in the Darjeeling area, including through individual sponsorship;
- Improve, where appropriate, their social and living conditions where these affect the children’s ability to fully benefit from educational opportunities;
- Work with local people who identify projects and priorities for funding;
- Maximise the value and cost effectiveness of funds.
