INDEPENDENT LIVING UNIT PROJECT ...$14,000
Once the girls at Mukti finish school, many will leave to go to college or work. However, they still call Mukti home, and return there during their holidays. Help us to provide an independent living area for these girls to come back to, where they can maintain their independence whilst living as part of the Mukti community. The building is available for this unit but it needs renovating and furnishing....so we need paint, bunk beds, a couch, table and chairs and a television and DVD player to make it like home for them.
WOMEN'S SUPPORT PROJECT
Mukti provides a loving community to many abandoned, abused, disabled and marginalised women. But the costs involved in supporting these women is causing financial strain for Mukti. Help us to keep Mukti going strong and supporting hundreds of women and children.
