|Neighbours Aid Community Stores Inc. was created to empower communities in developing nations to reach their potential through education, medical care, capacity building, food production and the development of sustainable projects.

The Tikvah (meaning hope) Project is our newest initiative. Vijayawada is the largest city of the Krishna district in the State of Andra Pradesh. Including surrounding districts, Vijayawada has a population of 1.4 million and has one of the highest incidences of HIV AIDS in India. Children living in the slums in the Sundaryana District and surrounding tribal villages have few opportunities for schooling; women, and young girls in particular, are at extreme risk; poverty is high as is domestic violence and alcoholism. NACS, in conjunction with our In Country Partner, Phildelphia Trust, are providing Literacy programs, vocational training and health education.
Neighbours Aid undertakes development projects which include two schools, a children’s home and a medical centre in Malawi, one of the world’s poorest nations. We care for several hundred children, employ more than 40 village people in our projects and have established mushroom & fish farms, vegetable & fruit tree projects.
Neighbours Aid undertakes development projects which include a school and children’s home for more than 260 children; tailoring schools and training projects for single mothers; food growing and animal husbandry and community enrichment programs.
