“New Partner Appeal”
AKSHAYA KSHETRAM provides specialised residential care for 120 mentally challenged people (including 50 orphans) in South India and engages with the community to reduce the stigma associated with disability and mental illness.
When there is so much poverty everywhere, and India seems so rich, does India need more help than e.g. Africa?
One third of all of the world’s poor live in India. Proper access to water & sanitation, health care, education, income generation opportunities & gender equality are out of reach for hundreds of millions of people.
SO WHY JEEVIKA?
