Caring for vulnerable children living in the slums and villages of India

Community Centers

Community Centers

Community centers are wonderful tools for nurturing communal development.

GPM built the first community in the remote rural village of Ashte in Western Maharashtra. The center hosts meetings, cultural events, festivals, and communal gatherings -- as well as visitors from all around the world.

GPM opened a second community center in the urban slum of Kalwa in Mumbai. The Joshua Jacob Greenberger Memorial Learning Center in the Bhaskar Nagar neighborhood in the heart of the Kalwa slum, is named in in loving memory of GPM-Entwine fellow Joshua Jacob Greenberger who tragically passed away in May 2017. It facilitates accessible quality educational support to children from preschool through tenth grade.
