MISSION: To preserve and promote the cultural heritage of Rajasthan in North America


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

How it works

  • You adopt RANA’s charter village
  • Your annual financial commitment goes to fund specific programs for your adopted village
  • You build a true relationship with your village through our regular updates, live audio/video conversations and through virtual/in-person tours.
  • You celebrate the accomplishments of the village as they achieve specific milestones
