Find Solutions to Extreme Poverty in India

by Fundacion Vicente Ferrer


Fundacion Vicente Ferrer is a NGO which helps to find solutions to eradicate extreme poverty in rural areas of southern India, at states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Thanks to over 40 years of tireless and constant efforts, the organization has become a deep-rooted part of society, respecting the environment and local culture, contributing to the process of social transformation. Our goal is to ensure sustainable development with the active involvement and leadership of the communities.

We work in one of the poorest region of India, with some of the neediest and most marginalized communities, the dalits or untouchables, the backward castes and tribal groups. The dalits are on the lowest rung of the caste system, so much so that they are considered to have no caste. In rural India, they constitute a marginalized community that lives apart from the rest of society. Their work as day laborers, which is poorly paid and irregular, prevents them from accessing proper living condition


Our focus is community development, seeking to achieve a change that provides long-term solutions and helps eradicate extreme poverty on a permanent basis. We encourage the community social and economic participation, to enhance its strength, confidence, and ability to resolve its own problems. Your donation will allow carrying out our comprehensive development program. You can choose how much and when make a contribution; and destine it to our general fund or to a specific area.

Long-Term Impact

Bring about the change we seek requires working in all areas of development. We conduct a comprehensive development program focusing in 6 key areas: Healthcare, Housing, Education, Ecology, Women and People with Disabilities. On the premise of an integral development, it is indispensable that the results reverberate equally in the set of the community to guarantee the continuity of any initiative. We keep a continuous dialogue with people, to ensure our programs are useful and practical
