In 1985 Louise founded Save a Child, a non-profit whose mission is to dynamically change deprived Indian children's lives and opportunities through long-term sponsorship. In 2010 she then founded Save a Child US, with 501c3 status. Today, about 400 children are sponsored through Save a Child. Many are first time learners; some of these achieve Class 10, Class 12 and are even attending college. It is the most rewarding and useful thing she does. Please visit www.saveachildsponsoring.org.
