The Wider Vision Foundation was founded in Varanasi in the summer 2009, and Naveen Nursery & Primary School was incorporated into it as a school project for children of financially weak families.
Besides the school education, the Wider Vision Foundation has expanded its spectrum to include giving support to individuals in need, and particularly widows and single mothers and their young children. They can be helped through crises with advice or technical and financial support, further education or training, or healthcare.
Birgit is responsible for the overall co-ordination of the project. Neel works as tour-escort. He helps in his free time and supports the school in all possible ways. Both their work is voluntary.
