Rebuilding lives, one book at a time.
We are seeking funds to build a library for Kinnar Maa Trust in Mumbai
Goal: ₹ 80,000/- | Raised: ₹703/- | Deadline: October 31, 2016
Kinnar Maa was established in 1995 as an organisation that works for the betterment of PLHIV, senior citizens, and handicapped hijras. We aim to provide nutritional and medical support to hijras living with HIV/AIDS and handicapped hijras and give shelter in the last stages of their lives.
We also offer counselling as well as create awareness for the HIV/STI community. We have been active in various community development initiatives such as health camps, awareness stalls, condom distribution, and participating in various awareness rallies.

Why do we need a library?
Our organization works for the development of our community by supporting the education of handicaps, HIV infected people, and senior citizens of the hijra community. We believe that education plays a pivotal role in uplifting lives. In our attempts to create a more educated and knowledgeable community, we wish to build a library which will host books about LGBTQIA.
We need this library so that we can support proper skill development and education of those in our community. Contributions will help us buy materials and pay for labor costs and buy the resources. We currently do not have enough funds to be self-sufficient, so we ask for your support.
