Thanks to your support, students are back at school after COVID19. The pandemic disproportionately afflicted the lowest-income women and children, with increased threats of food insecurity, child marriage, domestic violence, and child trafficking, so we continue to provide essential community support.


Recognizing we all face a threat far greater than the pandemic - ecosystems collapse and climate crisis - we have expanded into Shakti Regeneration Institute (SRI) with advanced initiatives to protect ecosystems and Indigenous forest protectors preserving climate, biodiversity, and life on our planet. Join us, Be The Regeneration Generation.
