Opne Hands Education is a non-profit small organisation working in small rural village in Dadawan since 2017 about 50 kilometers far from Bodhgaya.
Bodhgaya is located in the Northern India state of Bihar, the villages around Bodhgaya have been living in poverty for multiple generations. Bihar is considered one of the poorest and most impoverished areas in India, this is where we work. Bodhgaya is one of the holiest Buddhist pilgrimage sites. Prince Siddhartha attained perfect enlightenment under a bodhi tree in Bodygaya some 2,500 years ago. Historically, it was known as the Bodhimanda or ground around the bodhi tree.
Opne Hands Education, focusing on alleviating poverty and social injustice. We do this through well planned and comprehensive projects in women's empowerment, education, livelihoods and disaster preparedness and response. Our overall goal is the empowerment of women and girls from poor and marginalised communities leading to improvement in their lives and livelihoods.
We believe that, together, we can change the way we care for children and help to get them into stable, loving, nurturing environments. We believe in them, in you and in Miracles. We believe in a world that listens closely to children and gives them a voice.
