A Gift in your Will
Your Will is first and foremost to protect those you care for, it is also an opportunity to continue to support the causes that are important to you.
Action Village India (AVI) understand better than anyone that family and friends come first in one's financial plans, which makes the gifts we do receive so greatly appreciated.
Why give to Action Village India
Enabling the poorest in India to improve their standard of living, to promote access to basic services like water, education, justice and healthcare, and to support people in helping themselves out of poverty by acting on their rights, is what motivates individuals to support Action Village India (AVI).
Any gift left to AVI will be tax-free, so the money that would have gone to the Inland Revenue will be spent on funding projects in rural India. This is the case if you leave a percentage of your estate (a residuary gift) or a lump sum (a pecuniary gift). Either amount will make a real difference to the lives of families we support through our partners.

A legacy from you could transform the lives of some of the poorest people in the communities our partners work in, well into the future.Your gift could help provide dietary supplements for malnourished children, or allow dozens of families to live in safe and secure houses.
Every gift in every will makes a very real difference, however big or small:
• £100 will provide a loan for a woman to buy a cow and begin to transform her family's economy.
• £800 will buy dietary supplements for hundreds of children with malnutrition and anaemic women.
• £2120 will buy training and materials for health workers and school teachers.
• £4666 will pay for housing improvements for dozens of families.
Such projects will continue to need our support for many years to come. By donating to AVI in your Will you can leave a lasting legacy to the people of rural India.
