FORGOTTEN CHILDREN was
founded in 1994 by Francoise Remington after she saw working
children in South Asia.
Mission is to improve the conditions of children living
in difficult circumstances through advocacy, research, training, and
projects, especially in the area of education. We believe that every
child has a right to enjoy childhood as well as to learn to read and

We are currently working in
Tamil Nadu, India. We work in collaboration with local
grassroots organizations that believe in children's rights. We
support basic education and micro-credit projects that will nurture
economic independence with dignity to their beneficiaries while
respecting their religious beliefs and cultural traditions. Our
contribution aims to help children and their families by providing a
means to generate income for the family in the form of a loan to
purchase an animal, tools, or seeds and by paying for the education
of the child for one year. Our work in

India, we are helping
Dalit and Tribal children, mainly
girls, and 184 landless Dalit and Tribal women. We do not have paid
staff. We work with a network of volunteers. Funding comes from
individuals and private foundations. All donations support directly
our projects. Administrative expenses are 15% of our budget.
For many years, we have been advocates for the abolition of the
worst forms of child labor. We believe that prevention of child
labor through education and empowering parents is one of the best
solutions to protect childhood.
