Train Platform Schools for Children in India

Update on Ruchika's work, we need your support now!

After the broadcast of the “PBS New Heroes” in 2005-2006, you helped Ruchika raise $120,675 for the Ruchika Platform schools. These schools are funded for multiple years now. Thank you for caring and even more so, acting.

A rare opportunity to multiply your contributions many fold is available once more. A donor has promised to match 100% of the total contributions to Global Giving by Oct 30th. This will double your contribution. Furthermore, the Global Giving “Olympics” gives a $50,000 award to the “winning” Organization that raises the most money between Oct 9th and Oct 31st 2006!

Ruchika is collecting contributions for the our “Helpline Program”. [Please see the link below for the project] This provides a 24 x 7 telephone hotline, rescue, counseling, short-stay-shelter, nutrition, rehabilitation, and repatriation for women in distress. The State Govt. of Orissa conceived this program with Ruchika and provided funding for several years, but is not able fund this program anymore. We are seeking funds to continue this project for another 3 years. Thank you for your continued support.
