This is the story of a meeting with Sophie, a young lady passionate about Asia, and with Simon & Tim. Moved by our cause, they decided to come with us to meet the Adivasis children and women we support in order to better understand our projects. They sang for them, played with them, shared with them, it was a very emotional trip, after which they decided to sponsor a child.
We are very proud to have Sophie de Quay & The WaveGuards as ambassadors of the CIAO KIDS
Foundation and to be able to count on their commitment to us.
you from the bottom of our heart Sophie, Simon and Tim!

Following the death of his father, Anil had to leave school at the end of the 10th year and worked for 3 years as a daily farm worker. Supported by his mother, he was selected to participate in our scholarship system and was able to join our fostership home to continue his studies. At the age of 24, he brilliantly obtained a Master’s degree in Literature. He was then trained in social work and he is now one of our field coordinators for 6 months.
We are very proud because Anil is the first student supported by the Foundation to have completed university studies and then come back to work with us. In addition, he is an example to other children and to members of his community who respect and admire him.
