Betsy Elizabeth Trust provides small schools, or creches, for children under 5 years of age, in the bottom economic rung of Indian rural villages. The schools rescue children who are neglected, left on the street to fend for themselves, and bring them to a safe place which provides shelter, 3 meals per day, education by trained teachers, health care and lots of affection.
The aim of the Betsy Elizabeth Trust is to rescue children at risk in the most vulnerable age bracket of under fives. By establishing creches in the villages, we are able to give the children education, which is key to breaking the relentless cycle of poverty, and to develop a meaningful relationship with the community from which we can initiate other programs, such as parent education seminars in life-sustaining health issues that will impact the whole village.
The Betsy Elizabeth Trust was establised in 2000. It is a small, grassroots organization run by 6 local Indian board members, for the sole purpose of starting small schools, creches, for children from dalit villages, under 5 years of age.
