WHAT WE DO
We empower women through training in tailoring. As a result, women can start their own small businesses and support their families.
By 2019, we trained 1410 women.
Educating children and youth
We run two primary schools, one secondary school, and one vocational school. The schools have been accredited by the Indian government.
We offer boarding for children from remote isolated areas so that they can attend school.
More than 1,200 children have completed secondary school over the past 20 years.
The vocational school offers courses in Computer Science and diploma courses in medical-technical assistance
Primary healthcare and community development
Our nurses look after the children in the schools, and also conduct regular health education programmes in villages.
We run a primary health care centre.
We regularly visit 40 villages, thereby reaching about 30,000 people, and offer simple primary health care.
