In 2008 two families, one Indian and one Australian, met by chance and realised they shared a desire to do something to help make life better for some of India’s many orphans and widows. Despite living on different sides of the world and the differences in language, culture and backgrounds, a strong enduring friendship was formed and the two families decided to work together to create Shalom, a small farming community on the outskirts of Erampatti Village, where orphans and widows could live together and grow food. From small beginings, a much larger project has grown, which is not only helping orphans and widows, but impacting many lives in the village of Erampatti. We hope you enjoy reading about our project and seeing some of the positive changes that Shalom is bringing to one small village in Southern India.
Together we can change their future.
