Such good news to share!

2023 Campaign Results

Thanks to your generosity, US Giving to Maher raised $160,000 in our very first year 2023. So far we have wired $135,000 to Maher, with more on the way. (This is in addition to nearly $70,000 sent to Maher via Satyana Institute the first few months while we were organizing). Our total operating expenses were just $1740 – or about 1.1% of proceeds. This included IRS filing fees and PamTen generously donated creation of our website. We could not have done this without you!! 

Thanks to you, houses have been repaired, vehicles and furniture purchased, and bedding, clothing, food, education, for example, have been provided. Village development and outreach has been able to continue too, sharing good hygiene practices, supporting Self-Help Groups, teaching vocational skills (computers, tailoring, etc.) and so much more!
