This Holiday Season, Will You Help the Most Vulnerable Communities in Rural India Get Back on Their Feet?
The COVID-19 pandemic hit the poorest areas of rural India hard. Millions of people from the most vulnerable communities in rural India lost their meager income. Thousands of children lost one or both parents and were unable to continue their education. Women and people with disabilities felt the pain of emotional distress and unemployment, with no means to provide for their families.
The RDT team is working around the clock to help these communities get back on their feet. They need our support to help marginalized women and people with disabilities gain skills and start their own small businesses; to build new houses for the most impoverished; to purchase new bicycles and school uniforms for girls and boys living in remote villages; to provide cows to farmers as a source of sustainable income; and so much more.
This holiday season, would you make your first step to help these impoverished communities?
Whether you are ready to give $10, $20 or $50 a month, or a one-time donation, your gift will help provide sustainable support to women, children, and people with disabilities, and begin a new cycle: the cycle of empowerment.
Are you ready to empower a village?
The Cycle of Empowerment:
Everything is connected. A house deeded to a woman provides a safe and healthy living space for her and her family, raising her status in the community as well. A gift to a hospital could build a mobility device for a person with a disability, helping them get a good-paying job. As each positive change builds on the last, the ripples continue to spread, lifting up entire villages as more and more people share in the benefits. That’s how your gift empowers a village: by beginning a cycle of impact that grows over time.
The cycle of empowerment begins with you. Donate Now!
