About us

Big Hug Foundation provides shelter, education, food and healthcare to underprivileged children in India.

Unique Charity

For every £1 you give, 98p goes directly to our projects in India. Less than 2% is used in administration costs and we don't have any paid staff!

Sponsor a child

From as little as £5 a month you can bring a lasting change to a child’s life. Sponsor a child’s education and be the difference that keeps them in school.

Success story

Muthuvel, who comes from a very destitute background began an undergraduate degree in Business Administration with Chartered Accounting thanks to support of the Big Hug.

The Big Hug Foundation is a registered charity in England, Wales, and more recently in India. We provide shelter, education, food and healthcare to underprivileged children in India through our five projects: Cornerstone Children's Home, the Jugnu Pre-School and Nutrition Programme, the Early Intervention Clinic for infants with cerebral palsy, Girls' Right to Education and Action against Child Labour

We aim to help the children we support, develop socially, emotionally and excel educationally.

Each member of our team is an unpaid volunteer and is completely dedicated to making a difference to the lives of the underprivileged children we support in India.

Our Story

The Big Hug Foundation was set up in 2011 by a group of young, dedicated volunteers whose aim is to support underprivileged children with nowhere to turn.

Child Labour Project

We are working to rescue children stuck in child labour and enrol them into full time education. Help us end child labour and save children.
