Why we help
There are an estimated 10,86,625 children in India with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. Thousands of families have to face the very real possibility that their child may die and struggle to cope on a day to day basis.
Shuddhi NGO pairs each family with an expert Family Support Worker, giving them practical and emotional support. We support the whole family including parents, carers, the unwell child, brothers, sisters and grandparents.

Floods are among the most frequent and costly natural disasters.
Shuddhi’s work in schools improves sanitation and water services and promotes good hygiene practices among students. All school sanitation facilities include changing rooms for girls to provide privacy during menstruation. Teenage girls are also empowered through menstrual hygiene trainings. Through school Water and Sanitation Committees, students are encouraged to take ownership of water and sanitation facilities. These committees help maintain the facilities and promote good hygiene to their fellow students.
To further promote sustainability, we work with local water and sanitation committees that oversee the operation and maintenance of their local systems. We also partner with the to implement social art programming, using art and theater to promote safe water, sanitation, and hygiene practices.
For children (under 15), they may remain in the shelter for up to 3 months. The shelter will also serve as a food pantry for those residing in it and for those in nearby communities. We will also rent an office space which will double as a community center/food pantry.
Food pantries will be open seven days a week and stocked by farms we help develop. These pantries will also have a soup kitchen component where locals may receive one hot meal (soup, etc) or a sandwich each day, depending on what is available.
We will provide food for the underprivileged, and assist farmers as needed with tools, seeds, and other necessary items. We will fund agricultural programs in schools and educate farmers on how to use modern agricultural machinery. We will also empower local villagers to be self-sufficient by providing community family programs and by improving live stock handling. We will establish food pantries in each village as needed.
The earthquakes between Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Kodari caused extensive damage in Nepal. More than 8,000 people lost their lives in the earthquakes, and 3.5 million people were displaced from their homes. Our nonprofit partners are responding-more than 87 of them have asked for help funding their relief and recovery efforts for survivors on the ground.
All donations to this fund will support earthquake recovery and relief efforts in Nepal. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors’ immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted local organizations.
We believe that organizations that are deeply-rooted in local communities are often in the best position to provide long-term support for disaster victims. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger disaster-response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future disasters. SHUDDHI will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors and subscribers.
