pathardi e.v.

Pathardi e.V., an NGO in Hamburg, sponsors children in Maharashtra, India. With the financial support of sponsors the children are housed in boarding schools and are able to attend school. The NGO has an impressive track record.
Between 2003 and 2013 the total overhead of Pathardi e.V. was under 1% of the annual expenditure.
In the winter of 2012 I traveled to India trying to find out what has become of some of the children once they left the boarding house.
