The Pune collection: learn, earn, thrive, grow

Pune, India. What began with Tribal Child Health & Early Education six years ago is expanding. Now we also support income generation, over forty women's health, kindergartens and after school study groups.

Members of the Gosawi nomad tribe find themselves in the slums of Pune, India, along with those displaced by earthquakes and other catastrophes beyond their control. Our local partner, an Ambedkharite Buddhist organisation called JEEVAK provides non-proselytising care. We are impressed with their work. They have proven to be extremely reliable over the years, and we are happy to be deepening our relationship.
