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.

Millions of children across India do not have access to shelter, education or healthcare, so, how can they have dreams?

At the Big Hug Foundation we are working to change this by ensuring every child understands their rights and is given the opportunity to dream. We work with organisations across India to empower underprivileged children through education, giving them a head-start in life and the opportunity to achieve their dreams

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.
