Our mission is to end poverty for children with disabilities by supporting, equipping, and investing in their mothers.
We run a women’s empowerment program for mothers in extreme poverty who are raising a child with disabilities. These mothers are least likely to have a support network and most likely to place their child in an orphanage.
A mother in India who is raising a child with a disability, such as autism or cerebral palsy, lives in stigma and isolation. In addition to flexible skills training and education, she will need an initial phase of extensive support and mentorship to offset years of isolation, anxiety, depression and poor healthcare.
