Mass-Based Association for Social Service and Development (MASARD)
MASARD, established in 1983, focuses on poor, destitute and orphan children. In partnership with MASARD, Salt of the Earth will develop a holistic child sponsorship programme in five rural villages near Hosur, Tamil Nadu. The programme will ensure that each child goes to school and, in addition, the community will benefit from a number of awareness initiatives including Community Awareness Programs (HIV/AIDS, Environment, Water & Sanitation and Health). MASARD will also provide emergency support for those in the community in crisis.
