RANA is a powerful and effective voice for change in Rajasthan. Our mission is to make an impact through our Adopt-A-Village program. Our program addresses a range of issues – women empowerment, poverty, health, education, and more. We partner with communities and agencies in Rajasthan and California to increase self-sufficiency of individuals and families and revitalize communities. Our social service and community development programs in these villages work in a variety of ways to improve the lives of many.
The main objectives of Adopt-A-Village program are to:
- Serve the economic and social needs of low-income individuals and families
- Provide vocational training for employment and entrepreneurial opportunities
- Assist is setting subsidized infrastructure for potable water and electricity
- Assist in developing educational & literacy programs
- Identify brilliant minds and develop talents through scholarship programs
- Assist in setting up medical services
- Source supplies such as medical equipment, medicines, wheel chairs, eye glasses, blankets, clothing, school supplies, toys and more and distribute them to communities in need
