Supporting local artists
To show our support to local musicians struggling to make ends meet during the coronavirus pandemic, Gemini provided much needed food to 200 Rajasthani folk artists spread across 35 villages. Previously these artists had relied on income from converts to buy their food.
Protecting Migrant families:
Gemini took care of 200 migrants and their children who were discovered in a local village that we support. They had been left midway on their journey home and were taken in and looked after by one of our local contacts. They were given hygiene packs and basic food and the school where they stayed was disinfected and sanitised.
