I first went to Calcutta in 2002 on a trip to Northern India. My last day in India I met Subir and Eunok Roy and saw firsthand the work they do in the slums around Calcutta. That day, I knew I couldn't just walk away from the need and the opportunity to help.
I have worked closely with the Roys to raise awareness and support for the work they do. I personally visit the sites in Calcutta at least annually to insure that funds are being used as designated and to encourage those who work in such bleak circumstances. There is no one I respect and trust more than Pastor Subir and Eunok Roy--they are people of absolute integrity.
The Board of Directors oversees the collection and distribution of funds. We are an all-volunteer board, currently seeking non-profit status with the State of Washington. At present we operate under the fiscal umbrella of New Hope Fellowship Church in Monroe, Washington. New Hope Fellowship provides administrative services and provides year end tax receipts to donors.
From small donations, mission trips, overseas volunteering, to local fundraising, there are many ways to actively support this work. We are a collection of volunteers who want to use our time, talents, and treasures to change the world..
We work with Good News Children Education Mission, a local educational nonprofit in Calcutta. With modest offices and a dedicated staff, GNCEM brings hope to some of the poorest and most forgotten slums
All funds donated through Calcutta Kids or Quarters for Calcutta go directly to the work in Calcutta. Administrative costs are paid for by board members or by gifts specifically designated for administrative costs.
