Organized by: Kali Ingerson
In May of 2015 a young boy by the name of Manish was abducted, assaulted and murdered. While crime is not unheard of in the slums of Jaipur, this case was beyond horrific and its impact was felt around the world. Manish was part of a family that was "adopted" in many ways by the local NGO Save the Souls. It was through this organization that he along with his siblings received scholarships to continue their education and had the chance to interact with many volunteers around the world. Manish touched our lives and when we heard of this heinous act that lead to his death, we knew we had to act. As volunteers we came together and decided that our first priority to is move the two families our NGO worked with, consisting of seven children, to a safer home. Currently the area that the families are living in is rife with violence and alcoholism and fearing the safety of the other children, the organization is moving them to a new home located in the Mansarovar area of Jaipur. All the proceeds in this fund is going towards raising money to pay for rent in the new home which is 15,000 rupees per month (about 234 USD). Current and previous volunteers, including myself, are donating money to help support the families but we need help. The goal is set for 2808 USD which would equal to a year's worth of rent. We are sincerely grateful for any donations we receive and thank you for helping these families thrive in the most dreadful of circumstances.
