We support slum dwellers in Delhi, India to tackle the cycle of poverty

Charity Registration No. 1085071

Story

On the 17th February 2011, a group of us from St Stephen’s Church, Twickenham, will travel to New Delhi, India, to spend ten days serving the poor in the slums of this vast city. We will be working with the Indian NGO ‘Asha’.  The aim of our mission is to help a few of the four million people who struggle daily to live in one of the worst environments in the world.
As a group, we will undertake some manual work to help improve the community clinic at the centre of the Trilokpuri slum colony in East Delhi. We will also spend time each day with individuals and groups of slum dwellers, listening to their stories, encouraging them in all they do, performing workshops with the children and generally working with the Asha team to bring hope into a seemingly hopeless situation.
The cost of the mission to each individual is approximately £1400. This includes a contribution towards a team donation of £4250 to cover the cost of the project we will undertake. This will provide for essential improvements to the infrastructure of the slum community clinic and for basic provisions for the slum children’s resource centre housed within it.
We are covering our own costs; flights, food and accommodation. We really welcome any financial help and support for the project as a whole.  If you are able to support us, or know anyone else who would be willing to, please visit our justgiving web page – http://www.justgiving.com/Asha-Delhi-2011
Thank you for your support
