NewBeginnings is a versatile organisation working in different social fields.

Do you know, you can make a lasting sustainable change for good in the life of a slum child? Do you know, with your little time and generosity of sharing your skills, you can build the life of a slum child?

If you are willing to share your time and skills with those marginalized target groups in India, if you are committed to make this world a Better Place for everyone to live in; if you are willing to share your SMILE with another neglected, ignored child, then, you are in the right place.
