ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Seeing what's possible. Making it Happen.
Vision Builders is a U.S. based organization that carefully selects partners from around the world who are native to and living in their regions, and who have already started small humanitarian projects in the fields of health care, children’s education and job training for women. We work with these proven leaders to plan and fund next step expansion of their efforts to better meet the overwhelming needs of extremely impoverished communities.
Our project Kutumb : “Kutumb” is the Hindi word for family. Kutumb was started in Varanasi in 2002 to attend to slum children and children abandoned at the railway station by giving them a sense of family and belonging. The Kutumb Shelter is home to 26 children rescued from the streets and railways platforms. Another 90 children receive primary education at “Kutumb Baalwadi” and 48 more attend public schools. Kutumb also provides vocational training and adult literacy to around 70 women in the community.
Vision Builders serves as a conduit, getting your help to children in desperate need. This is made possible through the tireless work of volunteers, the financial contributions of our supporters, and partnership with those who also hold a vision of a better life for children in the developing world.
