Benefiting SAHAYA INTERNATIONAL INC

Sahaya Walks is an educational & fundraising family event that provides an opportunity for  people of all ages to make a difference in the lives of HIV-infected children by providing health-care, education, shelter and food.

Click www.sahayawalks.org to learn more.

100% of the proceeds of Sahaya Walks go to the care of 21 HIV-affected children and orphans who are part of Sahaya International's programs in India. Thanks to our programs, we have not lost any child because of HIV/AIDS for the past 6 years.

How far your fundraising efforts can reach for children in India:

  • $10 provides 1 month of life-saving medications for an HIV-infected child
  • $30 provides 1 month of food, clothing and school fees for a needy child
  • $100 covers 1 year of school expenses (including uniform) for an orphan
  • $360 provides 1 year of food, clothing and school fees.
