We Care is a public charitable trust, registered in Bangalore, India, on 30th January 1999. We are a secular, non-governmental, non-political and non-religious trust. Our benefactors and beneficiaries include people without discrimination of religion, race, caste, language, gender or colour. We associate ourselves with individuals and associations of people of goodwill.

We Care was born of true love and concern of the poor during the 75th birthday of its founder Mrs Theresa D Souza in 1999. It was her way of showing gratitude for the innumerable blessings of God. Observing the woes of the vast multitude of poor, the impoverished and thousands of children living the life of deprivation, she established a charitable trust under the name. With the express intent of ensuring that every poor child would receive primary education and become literate, We Care provides financial assistance to children for all their schooling needs. In the logical step ahead, it also extends financial assistance to young boys and girls to pursue vocational education.

The project has started a nursery school to support the education of poor children and has also initiated a program of mid day meals for school children from poor families. Apart from its project head quarters in Bangalore, We care also has a program for providing meals to over thirty tribal school girls in a remote village in Bihar.

A decade of partnership with AIFO, started with the visit of Dr. Daisy, Dr. Ekambaram, Dr. Sunil & Dr. Jose, Who witnessed the institution and rural based programs of Shree Ramana Maharishi Academy for the Blind® (SRMAB) which aimed at providing education, vocational training and livelihood empowerment support to children and adults with disabilities (PWD’s) since 1969.

AIFO’s visionaries, during their various visits to the rural rehabilitation programs, identified that persons affected with leprosy and leprosy affected disabilities were not addressed. Thus, developed  a partnership with SRMAB, resulting in:

Malavalli Community Based Rehabilitation: since 1997

SRMAB in association with AIFO since 1997 extended the CBR programme in Mandya & Malavalli Taluk (sub division), of Halagur Hobli. The program started with 30 villages. Which was gradually extended over the next 5 years to the entire Malavalli Tq, to work with all the categories of persons with disabilities.Focusing on developing “a community participation and inclusion of persons with Leprosy and leprosy cured disabilities”.

4 more blocks (Ramanagar and Channapatna Tq’s of Ramanagara Dist, Maddur & K R Pet Tq’s of Mandya Dist) were included to address the 5 matrix of CBR (health, education, livelihood, social and empowerment) as defined in the CBR Matrix.Currently the project works in 1202 villages covering a disabled population of 11,248 (Disabilities due to leprosy, Visual Impairment, Convulsion, Learning disability, Speech and hearing, Multiple disability, Movement disability, Disabilities due to Mental Illness)

The project work towards empowering 5 DPO’s, 110 SHG’s, local government such as Grama Panchayath CBR and Sarva Shiska Abhiyana (education for all) programs of government, The 5 components of CBR – health, education, skill training, economic empowerment and right based social inclusion reflects in the daily lives of PWD’s & PAL’s associated with the project services.During 2004 -2005 a Mid-term evaluation of the CBR programs was under taken by ‘Independent Consultants. And based on their recommendation, a 5 year activity plan was designed ‘with the objective of ‘developing a aware participatory community of people with disabilities and their families’ who address their issues locally.

Nayee Asha, which, translated in English, means “New Hope”, is located in Kheri village, a lonely outpost in the district of Daurala, Meerut, a satellite township of New Delhi, the Capital of India. Father KJ Anthony is the Director of the Nayee Asha School and Hostel. With the assistance of 13 semi-voluntary teachers, unsparing efforts are made to achieve the goals of the institution that were set out at the time of its inception.

In 1985 Nayee Asha was registered as a charitable society. It’s primary aim was to be part of the country-wide effort to eradicate leprosy from India and to rehabilitate the victims of the disease along with their children.

In 1986 Nayee Asha commenced a State-wide leprosy eradication program in Western Uttar Pradesh.

In 1987, funded by Kindermissionwerk Germany, the Nayee Asha Society put up a school and hostel for the children of leprosy patients who were being treated in the Nayee Asha Leprosy Hospital. The hostel started out life with about 50 children. In the course of the intervening years, more and more such children have found refuge within the portals of Nayee Asha.

In 2001 Government of India declared leprosy to be eradicated from India as per World Health Organisation guidelines.  Freshly discovered cases of leprosy were thereafter referred for treatment to the nearest government primary health centre.  The Nayee Asha leprosy hospital closed down, leaving the Society free to focus its full attention on the serious business of educating (with the goal of rehabilitating) the children of leprosy patients who were in its care.

Today there are approximately 300 children, with the numbers steadily increasing. Approximately ten children appear for the Class X Board Examinations each year out of which at least 70% achieve a successful result. A small number of them some go on for further studies.

Set in the interior parts of the lush green state of Assam, the Manikbond project area not only faces floods and isolation from the rest of the world for a few months every year, but ethnic violence between groups.
Though blessed with nature’s bounty, the area is backward and underdeveloped where education is the last priority. All that has changed with the work of the project.The project identifies children from interior villages and educates them through its boarding school.  AIFO fund is used as scholarship for these children since their parents are no way able to pay the fees.

Apart from this, children who come from very poor families are also given nutritious food and books, since an absence of this would deny intelligent children the opportunity to learn.
Holidays are utilized for giving training in health care, career options, and values of life to the children.

Set up in 1998, the Chainpur project began with work focus-sed on children. With politics and beauracracy in the hands of the rich in the state of Jharkhand, the friar’s entry point into developing the society was through kindergarten. Children hitherto spending their earlier years of childhood without any education have been slowly and surely inducted into learning through the kindergarten.
Ever since it’s beginning in 1998, the organisation has been working mainly on trail and error basis to meet the local needs.
The children’s project which created the entry point into the villages expanded to Community Based Rehabilitation. The project has started formation of Self Help Groups of men, women and persons with disabilities.
In the project 340 Children 2 to 5 yrs disabled, and 650 persons 12 to 17 yrs disabled.

Indiranagar children project.

Situated in the outskirts of the  Ranchi town in the newly formed state of Jharkhand in north India, the project deals exclusively with leprosy affected persons in a settlement which has come to be known as Indiranagar.
With a population of 435 of which half are female, 150 families are headed by leprosy affected patients. Though most are cured, they are not able to work owing to their visible deformity. Only around 21 persons in this colony work as labourers for a living.
The project has focussed on education of the children to bring about a steady economic growth in the colony. This gains importance in the light of the fact that most of the children have disabilities arising out of leprosy.
It was in 1994 that the project took up the cause of these patients who had been an isolated part of the society with no outside help till then. A school was constructed and with the help of AIFO immediately after, the project has taken up the challenge of rehabilitation and educational upliftment of Indira Nagar. Children not only get dresses, books but also mid day meal complete with egg and milk. Apart from books and stationary, the children are given dresses on festive occasions and health support in the shape of buckets, soap.
