In late February GoPhil travelers joined us on a Journey to India in which we spent quality time with regional partner programs. Along the way, we witnessed countless positive transformations taking place at the grassroots level – survivors mastering employable skills, boys challenging traditional gender roles in their own homes, girls speaking boldly of their rights to their communities, women lifting each other up, children being provided with boundless opportunities, and so much more.
At the same time, India is currently facing many challenges, including very worrying levels of communal violence. More so than ever, grassroots partners are providing essential services and support to some of the most vulnerable and marginalized populations. All in all, we left India feeling very positive about everything they are managing to achieve.
We thought you would enjoy some highlights, stories and field updates from this recent Journey to India.
