Will you be upset if German parents asked to remove the history of the Holocaust in Germany from your child's history book? Something similar is happening with respect to the oppressive history of people numbering 200 million today. Please consider signing this petition.

David has worked all over the world for the past 40 years, though his main work has been in Tamil Nadu, India.

We currently work with communities in Kenya, India, Burundi, Rwanda, Ethiopia, DRC-Congo, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Afghanistan, Guatemala, and Honduras. Most of their projects are in the very poorest of communities, communities that have been virtually ignored by the larger charities, international organizations, and churches.

David will tell stories from the field in eliminating typhoid, and stopping a cholera epidemic.. Learn how you can contribute, volunteer, and make a hands-on difference.

Two Indian immigrants in Seattle sit down for open and honest talks. Each one from the different end of India's caste system. Read how the discussion transformed and educated the privileged one and opened up the path to deeper connection.

Update: The picture below shows Devi Lal cleaning drainage.

Defend DACA!

Turning our backs on young Americans who arrived in this country with family or other adults seeking a better life is morally reprehensible. The Tr...ump Administration’s decision to eliminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program places over 800,000 young people at risk of deportation and separation from their loved ones and reneges on a promise made to those young people by our government.
