TRANSFORMING LIVES IN VRINDAVAN, INDIA:
EMPOWERING THE WIDOWS VRINDAVAN,
NOURISHING AND PROTECTING GOVARDHAN'S LAND AND COMMUNITY
Vrindavan, India, is one of the most renowned holy places in the world. It is home to 20,000 of India's most vulnerable women who lack their most basic human rights, The Widows of Vrindavan - and its sacred land is diminishing under excess trash and unsustainable modernization.
We're on a mission to change that.
We've set out to empower an incredible team of Vrindavan's widows and local residents (Brajavasis) striving to protect, preserve, and uplift their sacred home and communities.
250 Widowed Women
provided meals, services, and security daily
meals provided to local Brajavasis in need
of trash removed from sacred spaces as fair wage community efforts
Together, we can protect & uplift Vrindavan's land and people.
Here's how you can take action today:
Meet our widows who need your sponsorship.
We empower and employ widowed women of Vrindavan to make a difference in their communities. By sponsoring one of our widowed women and her needs, you also sponsor her efforts to protect sacred temples and waterways, feed women and children, and uplift her community.
Become a monthly sponsor to a widowed woman in need.
GIVE A GIFT THAT LASTS
Vrindavan's widows are women without a family or community to support them. Coming from small rural villages, most widows cannot read or write beyond their names, struggle to find even the most modest means of employment, and resort to begging in Vrindavan's streets for their livelihood.
Sponsoring a widow ensures her employment to provide meals for other widows and local people in need and preserve and maintain Vrindavan's sacred spaces. It offers her housing and medical care and, most importantly, gives her family, community, and purpose once again.
Help Us Restore Sakhi Kunda
Sakhi Kunda is a Secret Gem of Govardhan, Vrindavan
This Kartik season, we need your help to restore this sacred bathing pool, the pastime place of the gopis (the cowherd maidens) of Vrindavan, so that it can be treasured for many generations to come.
Sakhi Kunda is one of the most sacred bathing pools in Govardhan. It's here where the gopis picked flowers for Radha & Krishna, and where Uddhava shared stories of Krishna in Dwarka.
