Our Work in India

We at this thisvillage are extremely happy to say that we have accomplished what we set out to do. We have been able to work with small communities to help provide what was needed most.

This is why we created thisvillage, and so we can say with complete satisfaction that we will now be winding down operations.

It has been an awesome journey – from our first trip to India to seeing wells be built. And now that even more has been built and accomplished, we are happy to wind things down. Whether it was providing access to clean water or giving counselling to widows, this work will pay dividends long into the future. Thanks to everyone who has helped make this happen.
