OUR STORY

Reach Lives, a product of like-minded doctors, businesspersons and philanthropists, has been conceptualized and created to tackle the issues plaguing healthcare access among one of the most vulnerable populations, our children, with a specific focus on orphaned, abandoned, homeless, impoverished and disabled children in urban Bengaluru. Our intent has been to reach these children and help them reach good health to maximize their chances of success in their lives. 


We have been operational since 2019 and after being accredited as a 12A registered trust with 80(G) status of the Income Tax Act, have made considerable strides towards achieving our goal through strategic partnerships with public sector and private sector organizations, successful fundraisers and the support of thousands of volunteers from across the country.

The Reach Lives team works in Bengaluru and helps children across a network of 75 foster homes co-managed by Dream India Network and 20+ other affiliated foster homes and those living in slums, migrant colonies and informal settlements through health, nutrition and housing programming.

Reach Lives is also involved in few programs that target other underserved beneficiaries such as transgender individuals who have significant obstacles in accessing healthcare and nourishment.

 

The Reach Lives team also took a proactive approach in handling COVID-19 at the community level through the distribution of over Rs. 80 lakh in emergency health supplies and rations and the health education of over 10,000 individuals.

COVID-19 RESPONSE

Reach Lives dedicated its resources to identifying and helping the most disadvantaged individuals, especially those who lost all means of sustenance, during the pandemic. This included communities of migrant workers, daily wage laborers, domestic helps, construction workers, trans-persons in need, children, elderly and the destitute in care homes, orphanages and foster homes.

 TRANS-INCLUSION PROJECT

Our newest project has been instituted to help a marginalized and vulnerable subset of our society - impoverished transgender individuals, many of whom are forced to migrate to cities like Bengaluru to escape societal norms and find themselves in need of guidance, support and belonging.
