Green Dot Trust, Mysore

Green Dot Trust started in 2008 by working with the rural and urban poor in Mysore, Mandya, Kodagu and Chamarajanagar districts in the areas of health, education, women empowerment, and community development. Through the grant, they would be able to support the expenses for increasing the capacity of transit care home facilities from 15 to 20. These homes provide shelter for mentally ill homeless men rescued from the streets of Mysore. Over 3 years, they will provide shelter, food, care, treatment for 120 such individuals and reintegrate over 90 of them with their families.
