Khandel Light works to improve the lives of the vulnerable and disadvantaged families in Khandeland and the villages surrounding it, located in the desert state of Rajasthan, India.
Working in close partnership with the local NGC, Nirman Sanstha Khande, the charity encourages local people to help themselves, focusing on long-term development projects including access to clean water and sanitation, better healthcare, education and housing.
It also aims to raise the status of women. In this way, Khandel Light aims to make a real and lasting difference not only to families today, but also to those of tomorrow.
A collection box for this wonderful project is located in this dining hall area, so please donate as often as you can and help make a real difference to real people who deserve a better life.
Remember, costs in India are much lower, so that even a small sum of money can make a difference.
