Watch The Bandhavi Story: An Initiative To Help The Daughters of Devadasis

Bandhavi is an initiative by the Bangalore-based organization Visthar. Bandhavi is Visthar’s initiative for girls who are at risk of being dedicated as devadasis. Currently 100+ girls hailing from villages in North Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh participate in a residential school program that enables them to grow as individuals, as well as build a community that lives in love, respect, trust and friendship. Affirming the rights of the girl child to health, education and an abuse-free life, Bandhavi provides for the children a holistic environment where they can reclaim their childhood, freedom and dignity.
