Mission Statement

Project RISHI (Rural India Social and Health Improvement) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to develop and transform rural India villages into progressive and modern communities. In order to achieve this overarching vision, our organization aims to start with a village in Southern India, Manappakam, a village located 100 miles from Chennai. We plan to build a medical clinic to act as the main source of primary health care for the community. This clinic will be manned and staffed by local healthcare professionals but needs support of sponsors for funding and infrastructure. Our organization will use this as the launch pad for transforming this village into a progressive modern community. Other future projects include development of nutritional programs, children's recreational facilities, water purification systems, and modern sewer systems.
