OUR PROGRAMS

IHBS supports education, healthcare and empowerment programs that were designed by listening to the people that benefit from them. We continue to expand through the generous support of people like you, and through the ideas and energy of the people who need our services most. 

EDUCATION

BAL ACADEMY

In 1987, IHBS' partner, Human Benefit Services, built Bal Academy to provide the surrounding villages with access to quality education. Bal Academy is now known throughout the region for its excellent bilingual instruction. Over 100 students attend Bal Academy for free, 1/5 receive reduced tuition, and 30 students attend on merit based scholarships. IHBS has plans to continue to expand the school to better serve the needs of the children. 

SCHOOL TRANSPORT

HBS provides hundreds of Bal Academy students with free transportation to school everyday. Nine buses bring students over 10 miles to class everyday for both morning and afternoon shifts. These are children who would not otherwise receive a formal education, but through Bal Academy can access instruction for a bright future where they have the tools to compete in a global job market.​

HEALTHCARE

KALAPURNAM HOSPITAL

Before the opening of the Kalapurnam Hospital in 2001, the 7,000 residents of Khichan had to travel over 300 miles to get to the nearest hospital. Villagers can now access everything from neonatal care, to eye surgery to dialysis in a facility with over 10 consultation rooms and 150 beds. International medical brigades also perform hundreds of cleft surgeries and cataract surgeries, giving people a new chance at life. ​

H2U HEALTH CENTERS

Abandoned government health centers dot the roads between villages. Seeing the need for access to healthcare, IHBS partner Human Benefit Services and Share & Care Foundation formed  the Healthcare to Unreached (H2U) project. They renovated two of these abandoned buildlings and a doctor now provides care there to thousands--mostly pregnant women and children. We hope to continue to expand this program with your support.

KALAPURNAM HOSPITAL

Before the opening of the Kalapurnam Hospital in 2001, the 7,000 residents of Khichan had to travel over 90 miles to get to the nearest hospital. Villagers can now access everything from neonatal care, to eye surgery to dialysis in a facility with over 10 consultation rooms and 150 beds. International medical brigades also perform hundreds of cleft surgeries and cataract surgeries, giving people a new chance at life.  The hospital is run by IHBS' partner, Human Benefit Services.

 

WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT

SKILLS TRAINING

IHBS supports a Women's Empowerment Program that holds classes for over 1500 women in sewing, beautician arts, business skills and computers. Women from the program have started their own businesses selling food, or making dresses and doing hair for weddings, both locally and in nearby towns. This allows women the independence to earn their own incomes and support their families.
