HOW IT BEGAN
On a week-end trip to the very beautiful village of ORCHHA, Eeva passed an extremely impoverished colony of locals, en route to sightseeing a monument. Little naked children were sitting on the filthy ground, surrounded by flies and insects, and they played with cow dung, putting it into their hungry mouths.
She stopped, 'dead in my tracks', shocked and touched, and stared, tears rolling down my face.
Weeks and months later, Eeva saw those children again in my mind and decided to do something about it. She opened a shop in ORCHHA to begin financing a school.
To educate children in schools
To observe and select gifted children and
give them an education in different institutes
To support families to start small businesses
To finance a buffalo for their ongoing supply of milk
For farming e.g. giving small plots for vegetable farming
To set up a local convenience store
