More than anything,
we’re a group of people with a common interest:
to improve the standards of living in rural India.
Why India? Most of us have worked for charities, spent long periods of time in rural communities in India at different points in our lives, some times just passing through, others settling down somewhere, getting to know the local population and helping with what was most necessary.
In 2002, that place was Vedanthangal. And we haven't stopped going back since.
Why India? In the last decade or so, India has become known as one of the world’s super powers, with a fast-growing economy, one of the epicentres of technology and nuclear energy. Urban areas are expanding, with more access to wealth therefore more comfort and better standards of living. And as this process continues, the West has started to turn its charitable efforts towards other parts of the world that need them more.
However, as tends to be the case in developing countries, this process hasn’t meant a better life for all Indian citizens. India still has slums in the outskirts of cities, some Indian communities are still extremely deprived with poor access to basic needs, such as education, housing, health, water, for example. Human rights in general, and women’s rights in particular, are still being neglected.
