Our Fondation

In 2016 the Veerni Project (see www.veerni.org) was changed into a Swiss non-profit-making foundation governed by the Swiss Civil Code and subject to the supervisory authority.

 

This Foundation supports the Veerni Project, which aims

  • to facilitate secondary education of adolescent girls from rural areas in Jodhpur in the Indian state of Rajasthan
  • to help young girls gain independence so that they can play an active role in the life of their community.

The Foundation may also develop further projects aimed at supporting young girls in this part of the world.

Historic of the project

The idea for the Veerni Project arose out of an encounter with a village nurse, and the project itself began in 1993 with the aims of offering healthcare programmes for women and of providing girls in particular with the opportunity of obtaining an education.

 

Since then, Veerni has supported and educated a large number of girls aged between 10 and 18 years, granting them the opportunity of exercising their human rights in one of the world’s poorest regions.

 

Encouraged by the results, we decided to continue to help these young girls lead healthy and fulfilling lives.

We need you

 

Our Swiss non-profit-making foundation has a tax-exempt status, which would entitle you to a tax deduction for any donation you made. Upon receipt of your donation, you will be issued with a certificate to this end.

 

We currently provide 85 girls with a boarding hostel, an education, and medical care for 7 years. The annual cost for each student is USD 2,000.00. Our target is to include 100 girls each year, which is why we need your help in the form of donations or sponsorship.
