thisvillage is hosting our first ever Indian Dinner Event!!
Get ready for an evening of chai, henna, and (of course) delicious, authentic Indian food.
Why are we doing this?
In the state of Telangana, where most people are farmers, almost 90% of households are in debt. Debt is one of the biggest reasons that farmers commit suicide. Currently, Bandanpally is home to 42 widows as a result of farmer suicide. Thought of as cursed, these widows are punished and ostracized by society for no other reason than the death of their husbands.
We want to take this time to focus on the needs of these widows; most of them do not have any source of income. (Read more about all our projects in Bandanpally at http://thisvillage.org/about/)
