I recently watched Prabha "negotiate" with a local businessman. I can promise that not a rupee thats donated gets wasted! I have immense respect and admiration for everyone involved in making Ramana Gardens what it is.
Ramana’s Garden India was founded by a dedicated and forceful American woman, Prabhavati Dwabha, 18 years ago as a result of her spiritual practice on the banks of the River Ganga. Prabhavati’s heart overflowed with compassion for the numerous homeless, destitute, and abused children she met there, and she decided to make those children her life’s work. On a shoestring budget, she has for years provided a growing number of children with education, nourishment, and a future where they had little or no hope. Through her guidance and perseverance, Ramana’s Garden India has also instituted programs to educate local villages in practices of proper sanitation, safe drinking water, general health care, as well as support for the advancement of Indian women through vocational skills.
It costs only a dollar a day to fund a child to go to school, eat, be clothed and safe for a year.
These are children who are in terrible danger of being sold into slavery or prostitution and have no other option. Every child who comes to Ramana's Garden is an outcast when they arrive and every one leaves with perfect english and endless possibilities.
$365 dollars a year can sponsor an orphan.
Please sponsor a kid. Please come to India and visit that child. Please gather 10 of your friends together and ask them for 36 dollars.
Please give what you can. Money goes a long way in India and these children need your help.
Please help us fundraise by passing this on to your friends and family.
Many blessings and Sat Nam.
