Our projects localizations
We are ubicated in Northeast India, in Bodhgaya, within Bihar state, the most impoverished of the whole country because it has the higher illiteracy level and lower per capita imcome.
We work in serveral diferents villages in a rural zone near Bodhgaya where houses are made of clay and have not electricity nor running water. Access to villages is sometimes difficult due they do not have paved road so in monsoon season roads remain flooded. The population has dificulties to access to schools and medical centers leaving out in an absolute poverty environment, where we have our projects.
