WHERE WE DO THIS

India

India is situated in southwest Asia sharing borders with Bangladesh, Bhutan, China and Nepal. India's capital city is Delhi, overall climate is tropical and the official language is Hindi. With over a billion inhabitants India is second, after China, for being the world's most populated country. About one fourth of the population lives in urban areas.

Although India has recently experienced a quick economic development, it will take lots of additional effort for reaching the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. India gives home to one third of the poorest world population and the existing financial means within the country are divided unequally among its population. Weakest groups and individuals within society – woman, casteless people, migration workers and ethnic minorities - are very vulnerable for discrimination and abuse. Although forbidden by law, child labor is still very common in India.

Varanasi

Varanasi, also known as Benares, is a city within the Indian county of Uttar Pradesh. It is a big city with over 3 million inhabitants and it was founded 2700 years ago, which makes it one of the world's oldest cities. The meaning of Rome for the Christians and Mecca for the Muslims is that what Varanasi means for Hindus. It is the religious center for Hinduism as well as Buddhism. The sacred river Ganges running through Varanasi attracts yearly hundred thousands of pilgrims. They get down on one of many Ghats, which are stairs to the Ganges, to take a holy bath in the River. According Hinduism, people dying here will go straight to Nirvana.
