Peace Child India
We are an Indian registered NGO based in Bangalore. We work with young people from marginalised communities, raising awareness about health, education and human rights issues and empowering young people, through educational and employment opportunities. We are currently working in 10 rural and poor schools around Bangalore, in collaboration with local NGO Arivu. We use the arts, theatre and other methods to teach about health and nutrition, basic English and maths. We also have two women's co-operatives in the slum and rural areas, where we have trained women in making products from hand made paper and hand woven cloth, which we sell to provide the co-operative members with a fair and sustainable wage.
