Hands on India

Sean and I will be travelling at the end of this year through to China, Tibet, Nepal, and India. For the last two weeks of our trip we have volunteered to work with a  charity called Hands on India. Hands On India is a not-for-profit, secular charity organisation that was born out of the dream to help children achieve their optimal potential through education, health care and empowering the community.

HANDS ON INDIA

· Runs annual volunteer trips; taking teams of 30 chiropractors and assistants for 2 weeks to provide ‘hands on’ musculo-skeletal care for those working in hard labour; breaking riverbed rocks and on tea plantations

· Funds 7 schools (over 700 children) to provide quality education for children who were previously amongst 1 in 4 children working in child labour

· Funds 2000 women in Women’s Empowerment Groups; helping women gain economic independence to further their family, and community’s education and standard of living

· Works to enhance the health and well-being of local communities in Siliguri, India

· Partners with local, community-based, Indian NGO’s who demonstrate cultural and social sensitivity and work with community and government structures when administering their NGO support strategies

Help Us By:

· Donating funds- 100% of money raised goes to the communities in Siliguri

· Volunteering to attend our next Hands on India trip

· Becoming a member or sponsor today
