In India, extremses are as visible as almost nowhere else. Especially living conditions and poverty in the slums show vast problems. Many children there do not have complete families, lack access to education or are already working in order to support their families financially.
In Ahmedabad, I will work for the organization Manav Sadhna. Its members live according to Gandhi's values and convey them to the local children. For many years, Manav Sadhna has been trying to support especially the children and young people of the slums of Ahmedabad, thus giving them more opportunities in their lives.
On site, I will support a school in the local slum, as well as another project out of over 30 in total. These are mainly focussed on education, nutrition, health, development and culture, such as English lessons, workshops and activities for children or computer courses for women.
