I am Sashini Manikandan (age 12) a voracious reader, a child author, and an innovator for sustainable environment. My favorite subjects are Science and Maths and I aspire to be in the government administration. My dream is to protect all types of life as I strongly believe that nature has created everything for a reason. COVID 19 has impacted many lives in different ways. The gift of education is a child’s right which came to a standstill for many young talented minds after the pandemic. I took this initiative to collect and contribute towards this cause. Let’s all join our hands and help them and achieve SDG#4 – QUALITY EDUCATION.
I developed this game “A RAY OF HOPE” to create awareness about COVID 19. Play this game and if you like it, please contribute to “SAVE A SMILE CAMPAIGN” organized by Gulf for Good to donate virtual masks to help support orphaned children living at Larchfield Children’s Home.

ABOUT THE CHARITY:
Due to COVID-19, we cannot currently travel to Tanzania, the home of Mount Kilimanjaro however we remain committed to fundraising for our charity projects and to providing ways for you to keep in touch with us.
Funds raised through this campaign will provide on-going support for children living at Larchfield Children’s Home.
In 2011, as a response to the desperate plight of Tanzanian children who have been abandoned by parents – either by reason of disease and death, divorce or other incapacity to maintain the family unit, a group of Tanzanian private citizens decided to register a children’s home and to call it, “Larchfield”.
Their aim is to provide a happy, safe and secure home for homeless children, to foster an environment where each child can flourish and develop to his or her full potential regardless of race, sex, religion or other defining characteristics. They would like to promote self-reliance by encouraging life sustaining water resource management and agricultural programmes supporting a nourishing staple diet and organic supplements from arable and non–arable farming; and to provide a focus for cultural community projects and to offer profitable skills and employment within the community.
