Since the beginning of Oli & Carol, the sisters believed they had an obligation to act for the benefit of society. They wanted to help those who couldn't afford basic needs so decided to collaborate with third world countries with a mission to help provide schooling to Indian children.
With Oli & Carol's help, Kusum, Lalit, Babram, Amita and Ritu are able to attend the Baba Jodh Sachiyar School in northern India. Every morning, these three girls and two boys are picked up with the school bus and go to class from 10am to 2pm, where they find themselves in a safe and enriching learning environment. Apart from receiving the basic need of education, Oli & Carol are helping them prepare for the future. Their plan is to continue supporting the children until they finish their studies and help many others too.
The brand would like everyone who owns an Oli & Carol toy to know that with their purchase they have contributed in this social responsibility project.
