Our main building in Jemo

Allow us to introduce ourselves...
Gandhi Kinderhilfe e.V. (Bijoyendu Memorial Institute) was brought to life by the citizens of Bad Camberg, Germany in 1999 to make a better, more humanitarian life possible for the children, the disabled and women in need in the Calcutta region, who are among the poorest people in the world. Mr Bidhan Roy, an Indian, is the chairman and co-founder of Gandhi Kinderhilfe and has lived in Germany since 1961. All activities are planned and carried out by volunteers and members of the organization. This means that all donations, membership fees, sponsorship money and money made from the sale of goods produced in India are directly and fully used for the realization of projects in India. Mr Roy oversees the progress of work and the success of the projects on location himself. He maintains constant contact with the helpers in India and the families which are supported by the organization. Since 2006 we cooperate with the catholic Don Bosco organisation to ensure a holistic care for young people. On the following pages we will describe some current and future projects that are cared for and realized by our organization. The Gandhi Kinderhilfe is registered as a public charity and is a founding member of the Hessian State Network for Development Politics, a collaboration of aid organizations in Hessen, Germany. We work together with Pro Interplast Seligenstadt to realize the medical projects.
