Action Village Christmas Appeal 2017 



We are raising vital funds to help transform the lives of 2000 people living with disability in Tamil Nadu, India. The 'Disability to Stability' project run by our long-standing partner, CRUSADE, will enable these individuals and their families to lead lives of dignity.  

This project has been inspired by the work of another AVI partner, NBJK, whose Disability Rights project reaches 45,000 people in Bihar and Jharkhand. In Tamil Nadu, nearly 2 million people are disabled. Many are unable to access benefits or integrate into mainstream society and remain some of the poorest in their communities. CRUSADE is working to change this by assisting them to access benefits and employment opportunities and through providing better housing and medical care. The project also forms self-help groups for people with disabilities so they can self-advocate for their rights amongst government officials and the general public.  

Please help CRUSADE transform the lives of people living with disability in Tamil Nadu this Christmas:  

£12 pays for the work of a physiotherapist for one day
provides educational materials to support five children with disabilities
supports 100 people with disabilities to access government benefits
pays for one person living with a disability to begin a small local business
