takes action to bring hope, and a positive future, to girls and women in India. The aim is to change lives through a range of initiatives that demonstrate, in a practical way, the love of God to individuals throughout the country.
Primarily, Mukti provides secure homes for destitute women and children. Here, they find love, care and acceptance regardless of their backgrounds. And for some, the first home they have ever had in their lives.
Mukti also supports the communities with other essential services:
- a hospital and mobile medical clinic
- a farm
- community development projects
- schools and vocational training courses
As of July 1, 2011, Ramabai Mukti Mission (Canada), who has been in existence since 1960, has entrusted the work they have been doing to GAiN, which means that Global Aid Network will become Mukti India’s partner in Canada.
Under GAiN, Mukti Canada will have an opportunity to reach a much wider audience, grow its donor base and sponsors, and ensure that the promotion of Mukti’s work will continue across Canada in the years to come.
Since caring for the needs of widows and orphans is a very key component to the DNA of GAiN, Global Aid Network is excited to come alongside Mukti India and support their mission.
