Welicar’s mission is to help combat the recurrent cycle of poverty within the slums community through the nurturing of its children. Our undertaking is to facilitate orphaned and destitute slum children to realise their full potential in life through the provision of quality education and by tending to their physical, psychological and spiritual needs. Our volunteers work with students who come from very difficult economic circumstances or are orphans.
