Sudershana’s Housing Project

This project was fulfilled on June 15th 2017.

Location: Manali, Himachal Pradesh

Gifting Partner: Radha NGO

Contribution: Due to housing restrictions from the Indian Child Welfare Department, Sudershana had 15 children taken suddenly from her care. Some of these children have been with her for up to 15 years and the majority of their lives. She had to relocate to a larger home, which costs her significantly more in order to begin the paper work to have her children returned to her. We recently gave her a small contribution to help with the costs;

  • 1 Months rent

  • Transport & installation costs for solar panels.

Reach: 22 Children

Amount: $1000.00

A little something extra: Radha NGO is a very small, remote children’s home in Norther India. It’s nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas near the Beas River in the Manali/Kullu region of Himachal Pradesh. It was started 15 years ago by one extraordinary woman Sudershana. She has managed to sustain & grow her home to care for 22 children. She understands that a child’s life potential is only fulfilled with a loving home & strong family life. That is what she offers her children.

Warm Dough Project

This project was fulfilled October 1st 2015. 

Location: Manali, Himachel Pradesh, India

Gifting Partner: Sudeshna’s Children’s Home

Contribution: Bread oven and solar panels, for alternate source of power. Our contribution will cover a plan, grid, installation, and a management tutorial.

Reach: 17

Amount: $2450

A little something extra: In May of 2015 we went back to visit Sudeshna for an update, it was clear everyone was happy and healthy. Something that had struck us during out last visit, during the winter, was that the home was without power for almost a month straight (and quite regularly). This is not only due to the heavy snow falls and poor power lines in India, but also because of the remote location of her house. We came up with a few solutions to help ease this burden: a bread oven and solar powers to provide an alternate source of power.
