**UPDATE** We are partnering with YUVA Unstoppable on this campaign, so every donation you make will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $100,000.
Help us reach our goal for our most ambitious project to date:
With your help we will build and maintain 50 hand washing stations across the Indian state of Maharashtra within the communities Sundara serves, ensuring every child we distribute soap to will have clean, running water.
50 hand washing stations means we will reach over 100,000 children this year and next. Help give the gift of clean, running water to communities that need your support.
Want to know the impact of your funds?
$3000 - builds a hand-washing station in a tribal village outside of Palghar. Sundara’s stations are high-quality and last 25+ years (compared to lower grade stations that last 2-3 years); Your funds will allow our team on the ground to hire locals to construct the stations, plus train them on how to maintain them on monthly basis, increasing their longevity. Plaque with donor name will be on site; includes a traditional tribal village dedication & naming ceremony in their honor; 500 children will be impacted total.
$2000 - provides a previously unemployed woman with a fair wage salary 3x higher than the local average, as a Sundara Hygiene Ambassador for an entire year. She will be responsible for recycling used bars of soap, making them into new bars that are distributed to thousands of children each month. She will receive months worth of hygiene education training.
$1000 - provide a classroom of 70 students from an orphanage for children with learning disabilities or physical disabilities, with intensive, year round hygiene education + bi-weekly soap distributions for the year.
$500 - brings a year's worth of weekly soap deliveries and monthly hygiene educational programming to a village hospital or an urban medical clinic or mobile medical van.
$250 - supports a previously unemployed woman to be enrolled in Sundara's month long hygiene training program and leadership classes. She will have access to a community of supportive women, be paired with a mentor and be eligible for full time employment afterwards. This will also give her a stipend to be used on health care, family care and nutrition.
$100 - provides 500 bars of soap to a mobile medical clinic that reaches families in the slums of Mumbai; your soap will increase our team's ability to provide proper healthcare to the families who need it the most.
