In these circumstances people with HIV don't have access to life saving medication needed. Our 25 acre farm allows 'untouchable' families to live together learning how to grow produce, raise cattle and live self sufficiently.

Help Educate Girls in India
 
Despite immense progress, education in India remains problematic, particularly for girls who miss school to support their families and are living in HIV care homes which only support them up to 10th Standard. We believe in equal education. Our School, IT Centre and slum classes allow our girls to complete 12 years of schooling and we also enrol and support them right through to college. Your donation helps give our girls knowledge, self-belief and hope.
