The first charity we wanted to support with Buy One, Give One is a Shiksha Prayas, an NGO in field of education for underprivileged children, based in in Gurgaon and other parts of Haryana in India.
“Shiksha Prayas” is a hindi phrase meaning “Endeavour to Education”, the charity builds and runs free education institutions which educate and mentor children from poor families, such as migrant workers or families with no fixed abode, ensuring the children receive an education, and a future, where they might otherwise drop out of school. Shiksha Prayas offers a critical stepping stone for children at the very margins of society, to build a future for themselves.

Smock have sent out two boxes of rainbow coloured T-shirts for all children at the Shiksha Prayas school: plenty of colours for children to express their individuality while kicking off the new school season with a bright beginning.
