Dear friends and family.
My heart has been deeply moved by the work of an interfaith centered NGO, based in Pune, India, called Maher, so much so that I am taking time out to be with everyone at Maher in November this year.
I00% of the funds I am raising here will be given directly to Maher.
Poverty, for many women in India, means death. Maher has provided shelter and care to destitute women and children in and around Pune, India since 1997. Maher is a haven of hope, belonging, understanding and empowerment to these women, irrespective of gender, caste, creed or religion.
Maher is present in over 85 rural communities around Pune as well as locations in Ratnagiri, Kerala and Jharkhand. I will be staying at one of the main sites in Pune - In Vadhu Budruk, there are approximately 220 children plus staff and housemothers, and at Vatsalayadham there are approximately 120 women with mental health challenges, 40 elderly women , 80 children, plus staff, housemothers and care workers.
Maher is in need of support to provide vital services and infrastructures that can allow the people there to live their lives with greater self-confidence, health and dignity. If your heart feels moved, I would love your support with that, in whatever way you feel able, whether that be through donating here, or through holding the work of empowering women and children, in your thoughts and prayers.
Even the smallest amount you can give will make a big difference.
I will be writing a blog post outlining my time at Maher, and will be sharing information on that as to the types of projects and needs your very generous financial gifts will go towards funding.

Thank you for your support and your generosity.
