The love and care you've shown to the people of Nalanda means they can face the future with confidence. Thank you.

You’ve helped parents put food on the table and earn a stable income. You’ve helped girls and boys learn life skills and lead change in their community. You’ve helped Nalanda become a safer place for children. Today, children and their families have the knowledge, skills and resources to continue building brighter futures on their own.
 

Thank you for everything you've helped achieve in India.


You've made a life-changing difference for children in Nalanda. Change that will last. Your love will continue to bear fruit for the rest of their lives. You’ve also been part of something bigger. A global community of kind sponsors showing love-in-action to children and families across India. In just the last five years, 3.5 million adults and 1.7 million children have been equipped with the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to break free from poverty, for good. 
That's worth celebrating!

Last year in Nalanda:

 

 7,180 girls and boys are members of a children’s club in Nalanda.

Nalanda is a safer place now that kids and adults have learned how to protect children, thanks to you. Children’s clubs are giving thousands of kids opportunities to express themselves and have fun learning about child protection.

Children have a solid understanding of their rights and are less vulnerable to harm. In 2022, 3,334 girls and boys took actions to help end violence against children. Kids are growing up in safer homes where parents practise positive discipline.

 

 6,883 children from ages 6 to 18 completed life skills workshops.

You’ve helped more children get a quality education, even during COVID-19 lockdowns when schools were closed.

Outside of the classroom, children are also learning key life skills. The workshops you’ve made possible have helped children and youth make good judgements, protect themselves, manage their emotions, share their ideas with others and lead change in their community.

 

 All schools in Nalanda now have a safe water source.

Children and families in Nalanda have more sources of clean water close to home, including 65 new taps throughout the community that were installed from clean water systems last year.

Four neighbourhoods now have a safe waste disposal system, helping to keep Nalanda clean and limit the spread of disease.

 

 646 caregivers were trained in gardening and nutritious meals for kids.

Thanks to you, more caregivers from extremely poor households have the knowledge, skills and tools to secure their livelihoods and earn more income.

You also helped provide immediate assistance, such as cash and food, to make sure these families could meet their children’s daily needs as they forge a pathway out of poverty, for good.
