What We Do
Our projects are designed to transform the lives of people and communities who have experienced leprosy, disabilities, and other Neglected Tropical Diseases.
Our community projects are focused on holistic care
We want people who engage with our projects to experience life in all its fullness. This means our projects aim to achieve full life transformation through supporting people with livelihoods, medical care, savings, mental health support, and the tools they need to achieve a full life.
Our Community Projects
Leprosy Friendly Village Desaku
Villages are important places for people to have community and a sense of belonging. Unfortunately, due to misinformation and a lack of understanding, patients with leprosy are marginalised, feared and discriminated against, even by the health workers who are suppose to be treating them.
Urban Leprosy, Kotaku
The urban population, particularly around the capital city of Jakarta is rapidly expanding with rural migration, as people come to the city in search of work. With the high cost of living in cities, many people end up living in urban slums, where there is inadequate housing, poor sanitation, poor hygiene and crowded living environments. These conditions increase the risk of leprosy transmission.
Integrated Mobilisation of People for Active Community Transformation (IMPACT)
You can give people affected by leprosy and disability in Nepal healing, hope and opportunities they desperately need to lead a healthier and fulfilling future.
By making a donation to The Inclusive Empowerment Project in India, you’ll be making a real difference —providing micro finance activities, vocational training or helping with advocacy and community issues.
Jhapa Leprosy Reduction
Following the successful conclusion of the RECLAIM II project, which supported 10 Self-Help Groups to become independent in eastern Nepal, the Jhapa Leprosy Reduction project has been established to increase our focus on reducing leprosy transmission in children under 18 years.
