In the Nawada community, most people belong to the Mushar group, a formerly untouchable caste without access to resources or agricultural land. 

Families here are forced to seek other ways to earn money, including child labour and early marriage. 

Living conditions are difficult for boys and girls; access to quality education is poor, especially for girls. There is a poor understanding of preventing diseases such as diarrhoea, malaria and pneumonia.

Partnering together for a sustainable future.

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

Your support is helping Nawada 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 Nawada community.

“It would take us an hour to fetch water, and it wasn’t safe to do it at night. With the new tube well and water filters, our village now has good access to safe drinking water.”
