  • We made a substantial donation to the flood affected communities of Gayndah and Mundubbera.

  • We fully fund a Home-school in Karachi for 2013, organised by the TOS in Pakistan.

  • We provide two educational scholarships for students in Pakistan.

  • Our donation to the mobility aids project, organised by the TOS in the Assam and Arunachal Region in India, paid for three hand-operated tricycles, three wheel chairs, one walker and four pairs of crutches.

  • We contribute to the running costs of the Golden Link College established by the TOS in the Philippines. This school’s values and curriculum reflects theosophical principles -

Children should above all be taught self-reliance, love for all men, altruism, mutual charity, and, more than anything else, to think and reason for themselves. We would… devote time to the development and training of the inner senses, faculties and latent capacities. … We should aim at creating free men and women, free intellectually, free morally, unprejudiced in all respects,and, above all things, unselfish.
 - H.P. Blavatsky in “Key to Theosophy”

  • We raise funds for a village in Kitui Province in Kenya.

The TOS in Kenya is working with the community to help it become self-sustaining. The village has formed a cooperative and the TOS has put in a water bore, provided fruit trees and seeds and is teaching women skills for earning an income.

  • This year we are supporting a new project to combat violence against women in India.

This was initiated by the TOS in Bhubaneswar, Orissa, India. The TOS has been in talks with Indian government agencies and local businesses about this widespread problem and are now implementing a plan to put up 10 huge billboards in strategic positions around the city. The billboards cost $350 each and we are hoping to have sufficient donations to fund several.

The TOS in Bhubaneswar already runs projects for women in the areas of health, vocational training and senior day care and have conducted seminars on violence against women.

  • We support the Animal Dispensary at Adyar.
