Their Mission: Every day we provide essential human services–food, shelter, educational and medical assistance–because only after their basic needs are met can the destitute begin to help themselves.
Operation Shanti is an independent institutions in Mysore. Operation Shanti has the children’s home as it’s main project with 48 kids under our care. We provide education, health care and fulfill basic needs of the kids. We have kids from age 6 to 18.
Our other main project is Operation Food Project. This is for kids with HIV who may be orphaned as their parents have died due to HIV/AIDS. A food package is given to the care giver, usually a grandmother or aunt, on a monthly basis, plus a small amount of money as incentive to the adult to make sure the kid is brought to the HIV clinic here in Mysore for refill of free meds each month. I am not sure of the number of such kids we support but I know it is pretty substantial.
At Operation Shanti, all donated money is used for our programs for the kids and street women. The Board and Management do not take any remuneration at all. Please see our financials on the website for all the years that we have been in operation.
