You can definitely help Sahayta. The www.sahayta.org website is specifically designed to empower you to do so. The first thing to do is ask yourself is what your interests are. It is very important to find a project that matches your interest. While contributing to any project on this site will help cancer victims rebuild their lives, choosing a project in a field that is part of your natural interests will help maintain your enthusiasm for continued participation.
Once you find a project that matches your interest, you can donate an item by adding it to the “cart” and going to “check out”. You can e-mail Sahayta to learn more about a project or to discuss further how you might be able to contribute. You may have services that you could provide over the internet, for instance providing counselling and emotional support to families , maybe even traveling to India to volunteer some of your time. You may be able to help rally some of your friends to “adopt” one particulat project in India. That way you could pool your resources and make a more substantial contribution.
The www.sahayta.org website is a way of having you benefit from the years of volunteerism that has created a wealth of knowledge of people and projects in India that are on the front lines of empowering cancer victioms and survivors in India to rebuild their lives. We invite you to investigate more and find a way of helping thes people in a way that is both meaningful and inspiring to you.

There are a number of ways you can build faith in this project. One is to e-mail Sahayta and establish a dialogue with a member of Sahayta. Any questions or concerns you have can be specifically addressed. You could call Sahayta and speak with someone who has firsthand knowledge of the projects. You could “experiment” with a small donation to see if you are satisfied that your money was spent as intended. If you would like to take a more radical approach, you could travel to Chandigarh, India and establish a relationship with a recipient. Then, you could make donations through www.sahayta.org for years to come and get confirmation of your donations directly from the recipients. If you can think of any other way trust could be generated, please e-mail us at info@sahayta.org with a suggestion. You can also submit a suggestion through the Contact Us page.
