Friends of Orchha takes a holistic view of development. It includes reducing poverty, providing access to safe water, sanitation, education and health care. The means to achieve these is bringing people together to assert their rights.
Our approach is a combination of mobilising local resources and talents and taking collective action to get the municipality and local government to provide essential services. Tourism being the motor of the local economy, we make every effort to ensure that the economic and cultural benefits of tourism also reach families that are below poverty line.
