Rikshaws: Love All
With a donation of US$ 130, we can give a great opportunity to a poor family in Puri.
The “Rikshaw Project” gives the Sisters of Charity the opportunity to help many families to buy a rikshaw for the householders.
The cost of a Rikshaw is of 8.000 Rupees (US$ 170). 130 US$ are from our donations, the rest is paid by the householders.
In this way, through their personal effort, they feel to be the real owners of the Rikshaws and therefore they give it a greater value.
In the afternoon the “Rikshaw Wala” come back to the school, so they can learn how to read and write.
Any amount of donation is welcome and of great value.
