WE INSPIRE WOMEN & CHILDREN
TO DREAM BEYOND

We empower women and children through community programs to elevate health and livelihood in India & the US.

We are heartbroken by the current situation in India and are proud of the work we have been able to do on the ground thus far. Thank you for your generous support during this time. We are committed to serving the over 1,400 rural communities we serve in Gujarat, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. We are focused on both the current immediate need, preparing for a possible third wave, and on the long-term relief efforts that will be needed. Please join us in these critical efforts to support India in this time of need. Your continued support is deeply appreciated and critically important in this time of need. Thank you.
