It takes ONE person (like you!) to make a huge difference in Nazma's life. By sponsoring her, you're creating Team Nazma and giving her a chance to break the cycle of poverty. Your $36 monthly gift is invested in her future and the lives of children like her in India. 

And supporting a teen is important because they’re at higher risk for exposure to gangs, pregnancy, drugs and more. Your encouragement will give hope and confidence during a crucial time in their lives.

Poverty in India

Kids growing up in poverty in India face many grim issues, such as very poor hygienic conditions that lead to chronic illnesses, difficulty in finding jobs due to lack of ability to get even basic skills or training, and poor educational experiences that start very young.

That's why we focus on providing access to medical and dental care, hygiene programs to stay healthy, a wide offering of career programs to prepare youth to find jobs, scholarships and early childhood development programs to bridge crucial gaps.

See how our program works and why we focus on health, education, empowerment and employment.
