Edith Wilkins Street Children Foundation, India is fortunate to work with a number of partners who support us in our vital work. Please contact our CEO Edith Wilkins if your company or organisation would like to join our growing team of partners:
The Geneva Literary Aid Society was originally conceived with the cheerful goal of marking the fictional centenary of James Joyce’s masterpiece Ulysses set on June 16, 1904, partly inspired by the memory of Joyce’s brief sojourn in Geneva a month before he died.
The organisation has become a loyal and valued partner of the Edith Wilkins Street Children Foundation, India. A number of concerts have been organised by GLAS to aid the foundation, and have been a huge success www.theglas.org
At ESB, we are committed, through our corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes and sponsorship, to investing in individuals and communities right across the country www.esb.ie
In 1997, during the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the great Irish famine, health service staff in Cork and Kerry established SHARP to help relieve poverty both abroad and at home.
Currently over 700 staff are members and have contributed €1.4m to projects which have saved and changed the lives of thousands of people who have suffered extreme poverty and deprivation. We have supported many projects since 1997. The majority of the beneficiaries are children www.hse.ie
The aim of our aid programme is to reduce poverty, hunger and humanitarian need, with a particular focus on sub-Saharan Africa. By supporting long term development and providing humanitarian assistance in over eighty countries, on behalf of the Irish people, we are helping to build better futures for some of the world’s poorest communities www.irishaid.ie
Performers Without Borders (PWB) works towards giving vulnerable children the opportunity to explore their potential. We understand that, through teaching performance skills an individual’s learning, creativity and team working skills are developed. Further, it helps to build confidence, develop empowerment and overcome social barriers. PWB’s methodology of following the tradition of travelling show, and the principle of fostering long-term relationships, is ideal in not only engaging children, but also ensuring community trust in the project.
