A CHARITABLE TRUST SUPPORTING ORPHANS & WIDOWS, AND ADVANCING EDUCATION FOR THE POOR WORLDWIDE.
V17 Foundation is supporting the construction of a new children's home and a new community centre near Guntur in India. V17 also contributes to the needs of a number of established homes for the welfare of the children being cared for.
V17 provides to those on the periphery of society such as leper communities in India and Nepal. V17 also aims to continue the work of training widows with skills for a sustainable income, in parts of the world where men are the traditional providers.
V17 Foundation supports the education of children around the world and works with local charities to manage the development of schools for the disadvantaged in some of the poorest communities. There are currently V17 projects in parts of Asia and Africa.
