El Shaddai information
Lonely Planet review
El Shaddai is a British-founded charity that aids impoverished and homeless children throughout Goa and beyond, running a number of day and night shelters, an open school and children’s homes throughout the state. Volunteers (who undergo a rigorous vetting process) able to commit to more than four weeks’ work with El Shaddai are encouraged to contact James d’Souza ([tel] 9225901266). This is an undertaking to arrange in advance, since it can take up to six months to complete the vetting process. You can also sponsor a child: contact El Shaddai in Assagao for details.
