Support the Channapura Village: Why it Matters
Development Challenges in Rural Karnataka, India
Located 48km from the capital city of Bangalore, Channapura is home to a population of about 400.
Residents live in a beautiful and scenic environment, but they face day-to-day challenges due to its rough and inaccessible roads. This has led to a shortage in transportation facilities, which has, in turn, affected the accessibility to much-needed resources, including healthcare, housing and sanitation infrastructure, modern school facilities, and upgraded lighting systems.
