We Care for Humanity Adopted a Primary School in IndiaThe founder of We Care for Humanity (WCH)Sultana Maria Amor Torres traveled to Puducherry, India to fulfill her commitment to the Little Angels Junior Primary School to be its second mother.

The Godmother program is a new Education program of WCH wherein we adopt marginalized schools by means of giving them financial support on regular basis to sustain their status or aid their critical financial situations and even uplift the economic condition of the school.”, explained by Torres. She added, “schools who qualify as our adoptees are those you may consider very poor, most often located in far flung areas in developing countries, and experiencing economic hardships, that when we come in. We not only offer financial support but other sustainable solutions so they can keep the schools going and the children are guaranteed to receive education.

Maria was accompanied by WCH Regional Director, Logesh Dhanasekaran and WCH Humanitarian Ambassador, Rajasimhan Murugavel on a 10-hour roundtrip from Chennai to Karaikal. “We are so proud of the work of WCH all over the world and even more grateful for the accomplishment of WCH that’s being carried-out in our area. As the WCH Regional Director in Tamil Nadu, it will be my duty to ensure that our WCH’s mission and vision are being implemented well and we impact the community in the most effective way,” said Dhanasekaran.

Little Angels Junior Primary School is a government approved school with affordable fees to ensure many students attain education from poor financial background. “We are grateful to Princess Maria Amor and We Care for Humanity, if not for them we would have totally lost the license to operate the school,” explained Mrs. Sumathy Thirupathy, the founder of the school. “We were able to solve the issues of improving the public toilet of the school, as well as paying the government fees to continue our operation. And now that WCH is our permanent Godmother who will support us every step of the way, it’s only fitting that we name the school after Princess Maria,” she proudly added.

The school is now named Princess Maria Amor Little Angels Primary School, located in Kairakal, Puducherry, and currently catering to 100 students. The school provides food for the students and other support other than education.

Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/embed/40LZnz9D1mw

We Care for Humanity (WCH) continues to flourish around the world. In collaboration with Zamling Buddha Foundation (ZBF), WCH founder, HM Sultana Princess Maria Amor Torres Mastura had a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) Signing with 7th G.O.D. Awards Champion of Peace and Humanity, Venerable Khen Rinpoche Phurba Dorjee.

The MOU comprises the formation of the WCH Nepal branch and the development goals it will undertake under its banner such Education, Health & Wellness, Poverty Alleviation and Youth and Children Empowerment.

The ceremony which was conducted last January 12, 2020 at Sang Restaurant & Bar in Kathmandu, Nepal, also celebrated the opening of the Zamling Foundation, a newly formed organization chaired by the Venerable Lama.

Nepal and Indian celebrities, educators, including elders and students attended the auspicious gathering.

Venerable Rinpoche Phurba Dorjee has a long track record of successful initiatives guided by his spiritual leadership and natural altruism. His compassion to the less fortunate especially the children and elders is extraordinary, there is not a single doubt that he is more than fit to fill-in the position as Country Director of WCH Nepal. WCH is very blessed to have him.” – Sultana Princess Maria Amor

The newly appointed Country Director also gave his statement: “In this chaotic world, people are engaging in war, violence, aggression, hatred and killing each other. It’s a very sad reality but we don’t need to kill people and die. We cannot survive and live happily, successfully without others so let’s build and share unity, equality, friendship, love and peace.” – Rinpoche Phurba Dorjee

Khen Rinpoche wears many caps: he is a film maker, producer and CEO of Vajrakilya Productions. Recently, he formed the Himalaya Peace Foundation in India and he is also one of the founders of the Himalaya Peace Caravan in partnership with Sultana Maria which will take off this February 2020 to Mexico.

Rinpoche Phurba Dorjee spends time between India and Nepal but mostly dispersing his philanthropic prowess in Kathmandu.
