Women’s New Business Grant
Regular price $250.00
Ministry Partner: Sugandh
Location: New Delhi, India
The Sugandh Child Development Centre, located in a slum in South Delhi, has been transforming the lives of working children for 22 years. Before going to work as trash collectors in the marketplace, children aged 6-10 come for two hours. They receive a meal and are taught reading, writing, and mathematics. Here they also learn about Jesus. Sugandh also operates a Bible and vocational skills school where young adults and teenagers learn sewing, painting, and card making. Sugandh offers savings and loan cooperative groups to women in the slum who either don't have the documentation needed for a bank account or the cost of getting to a bank exceeds what they can save in a month. Money from savings and low-interest loans from the cooperative groups has enabled women to buy small plots of land in their villages, cover medical expenses, and fund their children’s education.
Your gift of a women's new business grant will provide the initial investment to launch a small business or income-generating project for a woman through Sugandh.
