In 2008 a group of business leaders and concerned citizens came together to support a little girl who was saved from the harsh streets of Kolkata and found her forever family in Canada. Seeing this beautiful little girl thrive was the necessary inspiration for this group to establish a charity to help other children out of similarly desperate situations and into their forever families. The East Meets West Orphans Foundation was established in 2008 and was shortly thereafter registered as a Charity through the Government of Canada.
