An April Update

Dear Karya supporters,

We are thrilled to share Karya's latest updates and achievements with you. Your ongoing support continues to empower us in our quest to build a sustainable and inclusive pathway out of poverty for rural Indians.

Hear from Swarnalata Nayak, one of our many incredible workers across rural India!

Swarnalata Nayak

In Swarnalata's village, the average person makes $12 per month. At Karya, she made $60 in her first week. Swarnalata talks about Karya enabled her to contribute to her family, by "simply talking to her phone".

🌟 Highlights

  1. We have initiated a new project in collaboration with Karnataka Health Promotion Trust & USAID, further expanding our reach and impact in rural communities.

  2. The ACT Grants team visited our villages, allowing us to engage with them directly and demonstrate the impact of our initiatives on the ground.

  3. We are delighted to share that we successfully completed The/Nudge bootcamp and had the opportunity to present our work at their Soiree event, showcasing our efforts to an audience passionate about social change.
