Social

ACADEMY OF ROOT DEVELOPMENTA major problem for village communities in India is the forced migration of people to towns and metro cities in search of work. ARD is based in Bihar the poorest state in India and is working to improve social and economic conditions to enable people to achieve sustainable employment and the opportunity to remain within their own villages.  The projects they run include things such as micro financing and self-help groups where the local women create their own support network.

THE VEERNI PROJECT - The Veerni Project aims to empower and educate girls and women of rural Rajasthan, which has the highest rate of child marriages in India, so they can lead healthy and productive lives free of poverty, coercion, and disease. The project provides secondary-school opportunities at the Veerni Academy in Jodhpur as well as programs to bring about change in local communities. In Hindi, Veerni means heroine or woman of strength. The project is guided by the belief that when girls and women are educated and healthy, they will have the strength to create positive changes in their lives.

LHA – Lha plays a crucial role in facilitating the transition of Tibetan refugees from their homeland to the Indian community by providing long-term rehabilitation and education resources. Each year programs and projects are adjusted to meet the conditions and needs of the region, yet the commitment remains constant: to help the Tibetan people thrive and prosper in their new home and to preserve their profoundly unique culture. Additionally, Lha offers volunteers and students the opportunity to engage in meaningful community service and social work and also seeks to generate an atmosphere of harmony and cooperation within the community by tending to the needs of the impoverished and underprivileged.
