Support HIV+ teens for Jr. College in Pune, India

by Manavya


Since 1997, Manavya has been working diligently for the rehabilitation of born HIV +ve orphaned-destitute children and women. We believe that Education is one of the effective agent of change, hence we lay a lot of emphasis on quality education. The toddlers, who came to Manavya at very young age, have entered adulthood. This year, many of our children will be passing their 10th grade and will enrolled in junior college in different educational areas.

All the children are not fortunate enough to have their families care for them as they succumbed to AIDS. Since, we at Manavya strongly advocate for education, we want these children to attain formal education and become independent and live a dignified life. This can't be achieved without giving them qualitative education & providing training to improve their interpersonal skills. One of the main challenges for these children is to make them well versed in English & keep them motivated.


Education plays an important part in overcoming the hurdles in life. The project will help the children to pursue education as per their interest & live a dignified life. Pankaj will be able to complete his foundation course in Arts while Sudarshan & Kajal can successfully complete their junior college. We wish to continue with the spoken English classes to improve their language. Every little step taken towards achieving the goal is important. This project will bring them one step closer.

Long-Term Impact

These children are already face health issues because of being affected by HIV. Educating these children will help to make them career oriented & shifting their focus from personal health issues to creating a better future & setting up a role model for others. All three of them are now introduced to the outer world & this is leading to their Educational as well as Psycho-Social growth. The time is to leave behind the social stigma & boost these children to utilize their potential to the heights
