Welcome to the new Deva-Europe!

In the heart of Benares — Varanasi being its official Indian name, Kashi for Hindu devotees – Deva-Europe brings support to Dr. Tulsi, who heads the Deva Center for mentally handicapped children.

Building on the success of other, previous projects – preparatory schools for poor children and ashrams for leprosy victims – Deva-Europe and DISCC (“Deva International Society for Child Care”) henceforth are focusing their efforts on helping mentally handicapped children. At the same time, they continue to maintain the Annapurna Center for Young Women in an Indian village near Varanasi.

Dr Tulsi created the first center for mentally handicapped children in Uttar Pradesh, the state where Varanasi is located, in 1988. Deva-Europe has supported his work since 2000. Today, educators and their families still need our help to survive and carry on their mission of bringing dignified lives to mentally handicapped children.

They will be able to benefit from their last salary indexed after 60 years and this until the end of their life. This contract was awarded with the Life Insurance Corporation of India, the insurance company founded by the state. Continue reading

For this purpose, Uphadyaji, who has known this district for more than thirty years, has taken on the task of finding those poor people who are abandoned by all and who have fallen into a state of miserable loneliness and helplessness.
