The aim of Development+ is to improve the social condition of disadvantaged children and women in Jaipur on a long term basis!

The association Development+ development for all! was founded in 2009 by Regula Willi, who carried out development work in India between 2006 and 2008 and set up the bal krriti and shakti educational projects. All members of the association are volunteers for the association projects. We thank you for your interest and your donation.

News about current situation…

The second and ongoing lockdown hits parents and children from the Bal Krriti project very hard. No work avaliable and especially the children are hungry and exhausted. A few days ago our local partner organization Anand Bharti Care and Development Society visited many families from the area. Based on the inspection and the devestating feedback, developmentplus initiated an emergency support package of around CHF 3,000. This will provide 70 families with basic food. ABCDS will distribute the food on site. We are happy for every additional donation that these families support in this difficult time.

Our mission

Children from the area of A.B.S. School get the opportunity to widen their spectrum of creative and social skills at the Bal Krriti Project. They also get general education, thus improving their perspectives in the future. This allows a subsequent subscription to school, where they get further support and accompaniment.

Succeeding at A.B.S. School should allow the children to enter the professional world and ease their daily lives as adults. School education provides young adults with important competencies, skills and knowledge that help them to move confidently in a professional environment.

Shakti Projectopens a door to autonomy to Indian women. They are being taught sewing, thus acquiring the possibility to reach an income that allows them to improve the quality of life of their family as well as their own.

Partner organization ABCDS

Development+ works in close cooperation with India partner organization Anand Bharti Care and Development Society (ABCDS). ABCDS was created in 1997 by Indira and Mansingh Lamba. It fights against social grievances through providing a large panell of educational and vocational training programs to social disdvantaged people. A.B.S School in the quarter of Moti Nagar in Jaipur belongs to that concept, offering classes from first to twelfth grade.
