A sustainable space for widows in rural Andhra Pradesh, India

Get Involved

Thank you for your interest in helping SHELTER International serve the Widows of rural Andhra, India.  Shelter International is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Our ability to employ widows comes from generous donations from individual donors.  We aim for transparency and have low running cost with the majority of your donations going to our programs.

Monthly Donations:

We have initiated an exciting opportunity to sponsor employment of one widow through SHELTER International.  The salary of each Widow is $100 USD per month. This amount of money empowers these women to have their own homes, payoff past debt, and feed and educate their families. Through a monthly contribution, please consider different ways you can sponsor:

  • One or more Widows at $100 USD per month each
  • Partial Widow salary at 25 or 50 USD per month

One-time Donations:

If you are unable to commit a monthly donation, please consider making a one-time donation of any amount or helping Shelter through: 

  • Grant Writing
  • Fundraising
  • Spreading the word
  • Liking us on Facebook

We at Shelter and our Widows depend on your generous support!  Your support is much appreciated. With your generosity our widows will be able to find a new life for them and their families. 

Please contact us if you would like to help us in any way!
