About Stars

STARS (Spending Time And Reaping Smiles) was conceptualized and formed in July
2013. We are a registered NGO who is focused on visiting aged homes and children’s homes every month to create an essence of love and belonging. We also believe in the importance of bridging the gap between organizations and professionals who yearn to make a difference and ameliorate the lives of the underprivileged in our society.

We identify the various segments of society like single mothers struggling to make ends meet, underprivileged children needing education, needing to improve their talents, channelizing their energy, by providing them with the assistance they require to achieve their goals to secure their future through our helping hands project. We give them hope for a brighter future.

STARS is an NGO with a difference as we work on need basis and collaborate with professionals/organizations, as we strongly believe that when we work together we can make a big difference, and bring about a positive change to people’s lives!
