Our strategy Improve life in the country's most isolated, vulnerable regions by supporting economic development, youth development and environmental sustainability. The context India’s northern regions are home to some of the poorest and neglected communities in the country. India’s tea-growing region and Kashmir have long struggled with conflict and are fragmented by social and political unrest that leave the economy faltering. Millions of people are also extremely vulnerable to disasters and the effects of climate change, which increasingly threaten their safety and livelihoods. Our work Women & Gender: Support the literacy of female tea workers and improve graduation rates for their children Health: Building new latrines and sanitation facilities in Darjeeling to limit the spread of waterborne disease Economic opportunity: Connecting youth in Kashmir with technical training and incentives to start business ventures Children & Youth: Fostering conflict resolution skills and community engagement among young people in Kashmir Poverty. Conflict. Disaster. These are the global challenges that we’ve been responding to since 2010, helping more than 7,000 people survive emergencies and build back better. OUR BELIEVE We believe even in the world’s most challenging places, people have the power to transform their own lives when they have the right resources. Growing more food, earning higher incomes, advocating for their needs — we leverage their local logic to pioneer innovative, sustainable solutions that build stronger communities. Now, and for the future.
