Help for Women & Girls at Jubilee Home in India

A microproject by Jake's Diapers, Inc. Vetted since 2016 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit
Help for Women & Girls at Jubilee Home in India

Summary

All children deserve forever families. In India, if a child is born with special needs, the chances of abandonment are high. This project will provide a washing machine and cloth diapers to Jubilee Home, a foster home for older girls with cognitive delays and other challenges that require the support of diapers. By providing re-usable hygiene items, our Diaper Drop is able to focus on providing specialized medical care, which dramatically increases quality of life and likelihood of adoption.

Challenge

Women & girls living with special needs deserve having their basic hygiene needs met. This project will provide 100% hygiene coverage (both cloth incontinence & feminine hygiene items), which not only provides an increase in comfort but improvement in basic health and sanitation.

Solution

This microproject will provide a washing machine and a supply of cloth diapers for 8 women & girls living with incontinence. Through the use of cloth diapers, significant financial resources are saved. These savings mean increased affordability of specialized therapies and corrective surgeries, which not only increase quality of life but also increase the chances of adoption.

Long-Term Impact

As our partner organizations continue to have their diaper needs solved, they are able to save funds and plan for future improvements in their care. This can mean adding educational programs, offering better healthcare, improved quality of food (more protein!) - all steps that set these humans with special needs up for long term survival and a decent quality of life.
