We are creating a new website. It will be available in 2017!
Reaching the Unreached is a far-reaching, grassroots organisation working in rural villages in South India to help the poorest and most marginalised people, particularly children and women. As well as providing healthcare, clean water, housing, education and support to disadvantaged families, it cares for 1,000 orphaned or abandoned children, many affected by HIV/AIDS. They live with 'foster' mothers in four Children's Villages, are educated in RTU schools and supported through college until they are young adults able to live independent lives. Founded in 1978, thousands of children have been given hope and opportunities for the future.

Maharasi came to one of our Children's Villages in 2013, aged 12. Both her parents had died at a very early age and she was cared for by her grandmother, while her brother, Muthukimar, was taken in by an orphanage. When her grandmother was dying in hospital, she cared for her during the night and went to school during the day. After that she had no one so one of the doctors brought her over 200 km to Reaching the Unreached. Her greatest wish was to trace her brother and after many months of searching, we eventually found him and they were reunited in May. Now Maharsi and Muthukumar are very happy to be together with us at last and are both studying in one of our schools. Read our latest Newsletter to find out what a big difference RTU makes.
The film 'Land of Hope' is a moving introduction to life in RTU's Children's Villages.
