Welcome to Back to Life e.V.Thank you for your visit to our website and your interest in our work. On the next pages, we wish to tell you more about our seven current projects in Nepal and India. Currently, our projects reach and provide vital assistance to over 75,000 people in need.
Help to self-help in the Himalayas
The forgotten people – In the Mugu district of Nepal, the life-expectancy is currently 36 years. Infant mortality is among the highest in the world. In order to change the living conditions of the local people, who currently live in destitution, we are building schools and community houses, providing training and awareness programmes, offering medical care, helping establish micro-banks and enabling people to protect their resources and immediate environment. We are also providing energy solutions like solar power and solutions for agriculture and clean water supply.
Schooling programme for girls in Nepal
Education as a springboard for a new life in dignity – In the villages of Nepal, women and girls are generally marginalised and have few rights. They are therefore not in a position to access education. By offering schooling for girls and future mothers, we can not only improve the situation of the individual girl and her family, but bring positive change to the entire region.
Basic medical care in Nepal
Fates and tragedies from Nepal - In the context of our project work in Nepal, we often come across people, especially children, who need urgent medical attention. By providing medical care services, we save lives and improve the health of people in the region in the long term.
Help to self-help for the people of Chitwan
New hope for the "Untouchables" - Driven from their homeland, indigenous people must learn to cope with the challenges of the modern world. The members of the community are despised as "Untouchables" by the wider society in Nepal. To ensure that the children of these families can grow up in a caring and safe environment, we provide training in hygiene and basic healthcare, show people how they can gain an income from trade and establish care facilities for infants and toddlers who would otherwise spend a lot of time unsupervised.
Children's homes in India
From living on the street to a life with a bright future – With two children's homes and a day care centre, we provide a safe home for more than 100 children, who now have the chance to lead a life in dignity. Most of the children we care for do come from families affected by leprosy or are orphans who ended up on the streets of Benares.
Medical aid and leprosy projects in India
Dignity for ostracised people – This is the objective behind all our projects. Since 1996 we are steadily helping those who suffer from leprosy. We provide medical treatment and rehabilitation services as well as daily medical and social care. All our efforts aim at giving people back their dignity.
Children's rights in India
Protecting and empowering children living in slums - Together with our partner organisation, we have initiated a comprehensive programme to promote the rights of children in the most desolate slums and villages in and around Varanasi. By now, our project has extended to around 60,000 people.
