Giving back to the future

But we make a life by what we give.”

Contribution remains a core value in our organisation.

Children represent the origin of a beautiful life, however many are born in disadvantageous circumstances involving challenges with health, education, protection and support.

We truly believe supporting a child’s education is the best way to help break the cycle of disadvantage. By giving disadvantaged children and young people the support and resources they need to achieve their full potential, our impact will have a lasting effect on those we help today, and for generations to come.

Reni and RismaFor the month of September, Circle of Life Foundation sponsored the full years education for two sisters Reni and Risma, 12 and 14 yrs of age. Both girls are residents of the Bali Day Care Orphan centre since they lost their father in January 2021. We provided AUD $720 (IDR 7,350,000) which will go towards supporting the girls educational expenses, uniforms and textbooks.





August 2021

For the month of August the Circle of Life Foundation donated $500 to Food For Live Vrindavan (FFLV) organisation. The organisation is based in Vrindavan, a small holy town about 3 hours drive south of New Delhi, India. August is an auspicious month for the residents as it is Lord Krishna’s birthday.

FFLV is committed to educating and supporting girls education and empowerment. The organisation was founded by my dear friend and a passionate supporter of empowering children with education, Rupa Raghunath Das. Rupa, as he is popularly known, came all the way from Italy to India to set up this amazing school for the poor and neglected children of Vrindavan. He has been the true instrument of creating an amazing transformation in the children’s lives, for which they will be in eternal gratitude.

There is pure pleasure in making another person’s life a bit better.

I received these photos and an accompanying video from a beautiful 10 year old Paw Kuh who is one of the four kids of migrant parents. Paw was recovering from a debilitating Subacute Medullary Stroke. However the stroke couldn’t take the smile away from her face.

She received the iPad as an educational gift from Circle of Life Foundation that focuses on supporting the educational needs of underprivileged kids.

Would you like to join me on my mission?

I was the first medical doctor in my family, both from Mum’s and Dad’s sides. I realised the power of education and how it had allowed me to become an instrument in being of service to others. I am convinced that education can truly change lives, which is why I have committed to dedicate my life work towards this mission.

My goal is to support the educational needs of 25 children every year in underprivileged communities for the next 10 years.

I invite you be a part of this journey so together we can make a genuine difference in the lives of these needy kids.

In order to ensure that our resources are being put to use appropriately for the needy, I am ever so grateful to my network of friends, colleagues and acquaintances, who identify deserving kids for me, who we can support.

I would welcome suggestions from you regarding any children who may be considered for assistance from Circle of Life Foundation.
