Sending a Rainbow of Hope that this global vulnerability will bring us all together, united by our humanity!


Dear Chakra Project friends,
Greetings from the Chakra Project team. We hope you and your families and friends have stayed safe during these times of crisis.
Never before has the value of being community minded and supporting each other been so clear, as the coronavirus sends shockwaves through our lives. While some of us fortunate enough to stay at home safely, others are losing their livelihood, risking their life or facing the loss of loved ones. And for many, social interaction has moved largely online. As we each navigate this new reality, it’s important to keep the big picture in mind.



At a time of crisis, we know charities want and need to be able to give their all to supporting people who need it most. They cannot do that if they have to suspend their work or close altogether.

Bearing all this in mind, as well as our contingency plans for Covid-19 resilience and recovery in the short term, our long term goal to mitigate these crises includes launching the new project Nature Based Solutions in order to continue to strive in every way to support the women and their families to sustain themselves during this extremely difficult situation in Kashmir; however we need support to do so.

By providing practical support and counselling for those women and families disproportionately affected by the crisis, we will be ensuring as many women as possible and their families are protected from the hardships and hunger as a result of reduced family incomes. 

But we cannot do this without your help.

As a community project, we are heavily reliant on the ongoing support from people like you. 

In these uncertain times, help us to keep on continue to support the families involved with the Chakra Project.  

Here is what we are planning to do: Please, support us so that we can make sure the most vulnerable families survive this crisis.
