Dear Friends,

A message to tell you about a new group celebrating the work of the Deep Griha Society, a charitable organization in Pune, India that is transforming the lives of thousands of people living in Pune's slums.

Since 1975 Deep Griha - meaning Light House - has grown from one employee to over one hundred staff. They have three main centers operating in the Tadiwala Road, Ramtekadi and Bibwewadi slums, which have a combined population of more than fifty thousand (50,000) people.

By providing free health care, education, nutrition, self-help groups, orphan placements and HIV and AIDS counselling, therapy and treatment, Deep Griha has cast a wonderful ray of hope for India's forgotten people.

Their dedication is tremendous, their achievements amazing -and I invite you all to come join in and meet the staff of Deep Griha, learn of their work, their stories, their successes and their heartbreaks - I'm sure it will have an impact on you as it has done on me.

The group is brand new - I'm just 'arranging the furniture' for the folks at Deep Griha, who'll be dropping in soon. Until then feel free to look around, watch a film about the Society, and learn how their incredible story started.

Many thanks,
Charith
