YOUR CHANCE TO FEED AND EDUCATE HUNDREDS OF CHILDREN IN INDIA FOR GENERATIONS TO COME!
Help-Kids-India is a nonprofit organization based in Vermont. It supports the work of a grass-roots organization, developed by Indian women, that provides education in rural villages of southern India for young children who do not have the chance to go to school. Four schools are up and running but one of these needs a permanent home. The foundations have been laid to build a new building that will serve 50 children, ages 3-5, each year. To complete this building, we need to raise $6,000 by October 15. The school not only provides desperately needed educational opportunities, but also nutrition, health care and family support that is virtually non-existent in the village. The families in this village are from the "Dalit" caste of citizens in India, which means their social status relegates them to a lifetime of poverty and exploitation unless someone steps in. Your gift will last your entire lifetime and beyond, as this school will serve at least 50 children per year for many generations to come.
