I am currently living in Virudhunagar, India working for a non profit organization concerning women and childrens rights. The main issues that I am working with are HIV/AIDS, womens self-help groups and children orphaned by HIV/AIDS parents. The stigma associated with HIV/AIDS is very strong but the Indian NGO whom I have been working for have made great progress and development through community organizing and educating villages. The website is www.blossomtrust.org.in. I would be more than happy to answer/direct any questions from students who are researching about womens empowerment in India, the stigma of HIV/AIDS in rural villages, Devadasi women, and life after the caste system.
