Introduction
FTS (forgive the sinners) foundation devotes its manpower and resources in performing complete free funeral and cremation services (the ultimate act of loving -kindness for the deceased who are unable to repay the kindness). It is the only foundation in the Bangalore, dedicated to assuring that people who first and foremost live on streets , who are either abandoned from their homes, or destitutes, poor without shelter,who do not have noone to care and support,,disrespected and thrown away from society due to oldage, mental illness etc FTS is founded upon the belief that every homeless,sick or aged after their death, deserve a dignified and honorable burial and we at FTS ensure that this happens regardless of their caste, creed, language, religion, race and nationality.
About Homeless
A homeless man or woman, another child of God, no fireplace or warm dry bed, no family to call their own. In the cold is where they sleep, that's where they call home. Exposed to nature’s elements, on a frozen bench they lie, while we sleep in our warm house, fed, secure, and dry, they sleep between the rubbish, forgot they had a name, woke up to live their life for a cup of rice. Walking down the street, people turn away, they see the ratty clothes and dirty faces and they have nothing to say.  People walk by like they are nothing and treat them unfair but does anyone think when you pass to say a quick prayer? Some of them have kids, a husband and a wife do you not think they feel guilty for not being part of their life ?. No one knows their stories because no one really cares its like they watch people pass them as their heart tears. Would it hurt to take some time and ask them about their day you might even brighten it instead of it being gray.
 
Founder Speak
Hello Volunteers,Well wishers & Donors ! My hope is that through FTS foundation’s “Funeral and Cremation Service Project”, every homeless after death will have a dignified, funeral and burial service regardless of their caste, creed, language, religion, race and nationality. When I  see poor and homeless people walking the street I remember they are no different from us. Their economic position is different, their problems may be of a more severe degree, but they are, after all, people. I love to Listen and make them talking, I realized the biggest thing that insults homeless people, disabled people, or people who have differences is to be ignored, taken for granted, or, worse, stigmatized. Some claim that if you are to remain right with God, forget wealth. Fulfilment in life can only happen when you impact on the lives of others through selfless service. Don’t just exist, live life and live it well.Life is about living your dreams; don’t dream of a good life, live a good life. Don’t dream of making an impact on mankind, make an impact. Thanks for reading……

From my heart to your hearts, and from your hearts to theirs,
Vijay Kumar.

VOLUNTEER
As known no Organisation can be manned by a single person. It is a team that has to be in place to execute any project be it profitable or non profitable. Hence we need DEDICATED VOLUNTEERS. They must be people with the following traits.
They are:
1. Who have a penchant for charity in the first place?
2. You must love serving the sick and homeless.
3. You must be flexible in nature.
4. You have to work tirelessly.
5. Must be willing to work round-the-clock.
6. Must have energy and enthusiasm.
7. You must not expect anything in return for what you do, as we do.
If you are interested in committing a limited amount of volunteer time, we want to hear from you. Join our team of volunteers who co-ordinate events and projects. VOLUNTEERS need not be full or part time. You can work in a project till it is completed or may remain for a period of time. As such there is no fixed remuneration for VOLUNTEERS. However we offer food,  travel and stipend if resources are available.


We would like to hear from you. For more information please contact us via mail or telephone. If you want to be a VOLUNTEER with FTS you will have to give a serious commitment.
Thanks!
To make things legal, authentic and safe, we request that you pay only by Cheque or Demand Draft favoring FTS Bangalore, so that there is no area of doubt whatsoever and also to ensure that funds are utilized efficiently.
