Our Journey

We Come to the World for Serving & Sharing

The Common People (TCP) was formed in 2014 for the greater common good. TCP is passionate and focussed on reaching out to people in need around the globe without any discrimination of age, religion, ethnicity, gender and disability. The Common People is a registered not-for-profit organisation with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) and spent the first few years sharing our zeal with national and international benevolent institutions and organisations. We primarily seek to address the growing issue of poverty and child labour, and its consequences such as malnutrition, social exclusion, inadequate social protection and psychosocial underdevelopment.

We are passionate about nurturing children, restoring their health, providing them with formal education and improving their livelihoods.  It has been an exciting journey so far with experiences and inspirations worth a lifetime.  We look forward to the future in creating more positive difference in the world we live in. 

We are for children

Our Missions

1000 Children 1000 Stories

Every child deserves a bright future.  Our mission focuses on the all-round development of kids coming from poor and impoverished backgrounds, through education and nourishment.  We believe education and holistic support to children will help transform the communities they live in, and thereby sowing the seeds for the well-being of generations to come.  Our project spans across two districts of Kanchipuram and Tiruvallur in the southern state of Tamil Nadu in India.  We have 95 schools in our network. We work closely with school authorities and teachers in reaching out to kids who drop out of schools because their families cannot afford education and sustenance.  These provinces have higher than the national average rate of child labour.  We are in the journey of supporting 1000 children in their day to day lives for their better future.  The reality is all our 1000 children are 1000 different stories.  Some are orphans, some are living with a single parent, some are with parents who don’t have any other option but to send the kids to work, and we see all of them as 1000 hopes for the future.

We invite you to make an impact
in a child’s life.”

With a commitment of just $23 a month, you can help provide a bright future for a child and his community.  We encourage you to keep your sponsored child in your prayers. We will be regularly providing you with updates on your sponsored child. Please note 100% of your sponsorship money goes to the child, as we do not take any administration fees.
