  About us  

Act & Help is a French NGO (Non-Governmental Organization)

founded in 2007, with no political or religious affiliation.

Its goal is to fight poverty and homelessness
for people in greatest need. 

Act & Help actions are centered in Varanasi (Banaras), in one of the poorest states in India, where it manages:


- A home for vulnerable young girls exposed to sexwork, drugs and street violence.

- A school tuition and healthcare program for children from very poor families.

- A vocational training for teenagers from families in dire need.

- The drilling of wells and pumps for free drinking water in poor villages.

- An emergency medical assistance for the slum people.


Act & Help works in India under the auspices of its Indian Partner, the AshaDiya Foundation.


And in France, Act & Help provides support to helpless migrants and refugees by contributing to local NGOs.



Thank you to all of you who are contributing
to our efforts.
