Project Left Behind is celebrating the tradition of Giving Tuesday this year! And we are excited to introduce to you the young ladies of TLC Orphanage. They are lovely, resilient, yet in great need of our support.
Imagine stepping out of the compound gates fearful of being approached by sex traffickers. Imagine living without a forever family. Imagine not knowing your own self-worth. These are just a few of the issues the girls of Tender Loving Care, an orphanage in Hyderabad, India, deal with day in and day out.
Danielle Livolsi, Project Left Behind’s co-founder, set out to meet these girls when she was made aware of their existence in 2014. She found inspiring young ladies, and caretakers who had hearts of gold. But she also found dilapidated living conditions and a budget crisis that could potentially keep these girls from their one way out: education. So, for the past two years, Project Left Behind has donated funds so the girls can stay in school. Most of these funds come from PLB’s for-profit partner, NuttZo.
In 2017, PLB will be responsible for the purchase of clean drinking water as well as the room/board and education tuition for half the girls. But more is needed.
The building is not prepared for the upcoming monsoon season and they do not have reliable transportation that keeps the girls safe from sex trafficking as they travel to and from school. Plus, the electrical wiring in the kitchen is dangerous.
Therefore, PLB has launched a holiday fundraising drive for these three special projects. By donating to a cause that speaks to you, 100% of your gift will go directly to the project you specify. That’s because Project Left Behind has NO overhead; the organization is run by its volunteer Board of Directors and the staff of NuttZo.
Please consider an end-of-year donation to these young ladies. Have someone on your holiday shopping list with a giving heart? Consider a donation in their name. And every donor will receive a free e-cookbook from NuttZo!
Thank you and happy holidays from the Project Left Behind and NuttZo family to yours!
