FRIENDS OF INDIA Giving it Back
Friends of India, Giving it Back This project has been established to provide an opportunity for a global community of friends to give something back to the people of India.
Our aim is to contribute towards the education, development, and empowerment of underprivileged and destitute children and families in the towns and villages of Uttarkhand in northern India. Our HQ is in Rishikesh.
We will be collaborating closely with well-esablished local organisations, including the Aasraa Trust, Ganga Prem Hospice and Ramana's Garden. These organisations are run by very inspiring, capable, and committed people, and they do amazing work. They each have a Facebook page and a website - please take a moment to check them out.
Our organisation has been formed by a group of friends from Byron Bay, Australia. Our man on the ground is Paulo Thiago, who already has several years experience in the Seva community of Rishikesh. Sandra Tapia and Rani Willis are also there for the next few months, in Australia our woman on the ground is Ritamba Allen. As time goes by we will need volunteers and helpers with different skills, so please keep us in mind!
For donations, our account in Australia is Friends of India Trust account, BSB 032 573, Account number 313545 or you can donate directly to the organisations we promote through their web sites. Any donatioin given to us will be forwarded to the above mentioned registered institutions or other NGOs that we might support in the future.
