Narsinghpur's Community News

Thanks to the generous support of donors, we’re making great progress toward the well-being of children and their families. These are a few of the areas we focused on in the past year: 2017

The Narsinghpur community is located in the state of Madhya Pradesh. The area is often called "the heart of India" due to its central location. The climate is very pleasant except during the summer, when temperatures can climb upwards of 46℃ . Community members engage primarily in agriculture and livestock farming to earn a living. Most industries in the area are also agriculturally-oriented, such as those that focus on agricultural equipment and iron items. Other industries in the area include paper mills, leather goods manufacturing, and cement mills.
