The goal of the Ajeet Pal Foundation is to provide young handicapped beggars in Delhi with a legal trade enabling them to get off the streets, feed themselves, and above all, give them a sense of sense of selfworth that most never dreamed possible.
Tom Haig will direct all fund raising operations from Portland, Oregon and Ajeet Pal will direct the business and instructional operations from Old Delhi, India.
The funds will be used for renting a live-in workshop in the Paharganj neighborhood of Old Delhi, buying bedding and living supplies, and buying supplies and tools to make the handicrafts.
Tom and Ajeet are volunteers and will use NONE of the funds raised for their own personal use. All monies made by sold products will go back to the students. The ultimate goal of the fund is to teach the students a trade enabling them to live on thier own.
