Nalanda community is in the south-eastern part of India's Bihar state.

This rural community is dependent on farming to feed their families, but they face a constant battle against the elements. Extreme heat, dry, infertile soil, and many months of monsoon weather mean farmers are not growing enough crops.

Parents are forced to leave their families to find seasonal work outside their community, making living conditions difficult, and children miss out on school to help out at home.

Your support is making a life-changing impact for children in Nalanda.


276 health workers have been newly trained in maternal and child healthcare, improving the health status of children.


5,155 children attended Life School, learning to care for their health, hygiene, hand washing and other safe practices.


670 children under six now have their birth certificate, enabling access to services and reducing risk of exploitation.


1,081 adults took training on child rights and health, including child marriage, female infanticide and child labour.


Partnering together for a sustainable future.

By sponsoring children in Nalanda community, you are making an incredible difference in vulnerable children’s lives.

Your support is helping Nalanda community by improving the physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the most vulnerable children.

Through decades of experience, we have proven that the most effective way to help a child is to strengthen their entire community, caring for every child along the way. In fact, because of these community-focused solutions, for every child you sponsor, 4 more benefit too!

Together, we are tackling the hard problems, such as changing mindsets and behaviours to address the root causes of poverty. We're focusing on building skills, hope and opportunity for the children of Nalanda community.

“I’m doing well in Grade 12 and inspiring other girls to study computer skills, which they are enjoying very much. I am very happy that I have this opportunity to continue my higher education.”
