Overland To India

Go to content


JBF(Scotland) supports two projects in Delhi; The Informal School, which gives basic education to working children ranging from 5 to 15 years old and The Mobile Cattle Clinic, which provides free veterinary care to some of the thousands of stray and free-roaming cattle on the streets of Delhi. I aim to visit them when in Delhi. Check out their website for further information about their work.

I am appalled by the number of people, especially children under 5, that die of preventable diseases due to lack of safe water or sanitation. WaterAid works in 17 countries providing water, sanitation and hygiene education to some of the world's poorest people. I will visit one of their projects on my journey. Please take a few minutes to look at their website and see the excellent work that they do.
