“If you judge people, you have no time to love them”....... Mother Teresa.
My humble journey for bringing a change in lives of marginalized and vulnerable HIV positive children and women can be traced long back. Management of HIV in India has significantly improved with many international and local programmes supporting prevention and treatment. However, there are areas in India where women and children living with HIV endure a myriad of medical, psychological and social challenges.
My journey started with two HIV positive abandoned children and today we have 110 children at Palawi. The challenges, the difficulties and the hardship have no meaning when I see these children growing up to be a healthy, smart and educated children.-- Mangal Shah (Founder & Director)
Our organization is committed to strive for a just and equitable society. Palawi is a home to all the vulnerable HIV positive orphan children who are abandoned at the mercy of their luck. Though each child has a gloomy past, we at Palawi try our best to make their present healthy and happy.
MOur aim is to make them future ready and serve the society as an agent of change. The forte of Palawi is our capability to address the stigma and issues of such marginalized communities and to act upon them at grassroot level-- Dimple Palawi (Secretary)
