ABWU – India
The All Bengal Women’s Union (ABWU) home in Calcutta has been operating for over 70 years and supported by Partners in Aid for more than 40 years. It is an NGO run entirely by volunteer women to rescue abused, at risk, destitute, abandoned and orphaned girls. Many need intensive therapy and rehabilitation in order to be able to begin the process of healing and leading ‘normal’ lives.
SEDS – India
We work with the Social Education and Development Society (SEDS) in India to educate communities and help protect natural resources with water management and reforestation programs. Partners in Aid commenced a Child Sponsorship program in conjunction with SEDS in southern India in 1995. Many of the local children were disadvantaged with no access to education.
Symbiosis – Bangladesh
For more than a decade Partners in Aid has worked with Symbiosis in Bangladesh on two projects which aim to build the capacity, resilience and socio-economic status of impoverished communities in one of the poorest countries in the world. The Bangladesh Technical Training and Information Support (TTIS) Program provides vocational training in sewing, with the majority of participants being women. The Jamuna River Development Project (JRDP) aims to help communities living on islands in the Jamuna River through education, improved literacy, micro-finance and health projects.
Sinangpad Healthy Village Project – Philippines
In the Philippines, the Sinangpad Healthy Village Project helps enable poor, remote communities to make the most of their human potential, capabilities and resources by promoting behavioural changes intended to reduce the incidence of environment-related food, water-borne and vector-borne diseases, especially those affecting infants. It involves in-village training, followed by helping the community with participative action planning and providing small grants to enable the purchase of materials residents need to construct small-scale health-related infrastructure, such as sanitary toilets and pig pens. Ongoing mentoring and monitoring is thereafter provided to participating communities.
