Niya is a non-profit focused on innovative and peaceful solutions for social and environmental issues.
For the past five years or so, my colleague Jacquie Childers and I have used our little idea/project/website called Niya as our way of coping with war, hunger, disease, poverty, and other violence in the world. Our work is just a drop compared to the vast ocean of suffering, but it keeps us from despair. Awaken India is another one of our projects. It documents some of my adventures in India.

Bal Kalyan Website
Bal Kalyan Sanstha, Pune, graced the web in, March 2005. We are proud to be working with this amazing institution that provides cultural and recreational facilities to disabled children in India. Bal Kalyan begain its journey during a time when educating disabled children was important, but the recreational needs were not being met due to lack of funds and space. Government officials, social workers, and teachers worked together in order to get the Sanstha up and running. Today 1200 to 1500 children attend the center weekly from areas in and around Pune.
