SAHAYA WALKS (previously called Hope Walks) is a family-oriented annual event to celebrate that we can make a difference in the lives of HIV-infected children and orphans in the programs of Sahaya International in developing countries.
We do a very short walk, eat snacks, drink lemonade, listen to music, play fun games and listen to people share their hopes for an AIDS-free future.
This is the 7th year we are having this event.
100% of the proceeds of this annual event directly support 22 HIV-infected children and youth, who are part of our programs with the organization READ in India.
We provide them with proper nutrition, clothing, education and access to life-saving medications.
Thanks to our efforts, we have not lost a single child because of HIV/AIDS in 7 years!
This is truly something to celebrate!
Will you join us?
DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT:
We are honored to announce that an anonymous donor has come forward to match up to $6,000 in fundraising of our Sahaya Walks event with a 1:1 donation toward our microfinance program with women self-help groups. Small loans empower these women to start income-generating activities, that benefit directly their families and the local communities.

But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop."
