parikrama humanity foundation
a friend of mine works with an organization that is attempting to alleviate the cycle of poverty in india by giving the very poorest children access to first-rate education. parikrma humanity foundation currently educates 1,100 Indian children between the ages of 5 and 15 who are orphaned, have been abandoned, or are from households with incomes of less than $20 per month. In addition to the very highest-quality education, the children receive three meals a day, medical care and clothing. the education is in english, giving the children access to higher education and preparing them to compete for skilled employment. special emphasis is made to provide access to parikrma’s educational opportunities to girls.
parikrma humanity foundation is a non-profit organization based in bangalore, india. parikrma usa inc. is registered as a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt entity in the united states.
