Impact

Nancharamma's life is now easier because of a donor like you!

Nancharamma is a 75-year-old woman from Andhra Pradesh. She has two daughters but they have gone their separate ways after getting married. They don't look after her or check up on her anymore.

She lives alone in a small hut and has to take care of herself. She works as a domestic help and gets leftover food to eat. She gets Rs.200 as pension but spends Rs.40 for her travel to get the pension.She does not have enough money to take care of even her basic necessities.

Asha Kiran was her ray of hope. When they found her, they decided to enroll her in their program. They provided her with groceries, blankets and a mosquito net. Nancharamma is now eating two meals a day, has basic food and clothing. She is happy and living a peaceful and secure life for few months.

Poor elderly women like Nancharamma need very little to get by. You can help them by donating to get these basic necessities they deserve. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.

Program Description

Asha Kiran runs an initiative to help elderly destitute women, below the poverty line, living alone in remote rural villages prone to natural disasters like floods and cyclones. This initiative focuses on providing the women basic necessities and rebuilding their morale.

The Asha Kiran field staff interacts with the village committee and the local panchayat and identify and shortlist elderly women. They then assess the needs of the short-listed women. Most of them don't have the money to buy the monthly rations. These women are provided with monthly groceries like rice, lentils etc as well as basic clothes and blankets. Monthly meetings with them and free medical and cultural programs are also conducted to improve quality of life.

Asha Kiran helps close to 200 grandmas with this initiative. This help is provided through donations raised. When you donate to this program, a helpless grandma finds hope in her last days.
