Friends of The Banyan Switzerland is a Zurich-based society which aims to support the work of The Banyan in Chennai. We do this through projects in Switzerland that raise awareness of the issues that face homeless women coping with mental health issues in India. We also aim to raise funds in Switzerland to support The Banyan’s projects in India.
Mission of The Banyan
The Banyan believes in the rights of the completely marginalised sections of society – to live and to be. Our vision is for a just society in which the rights and needs of the completely marginalised are addressed without exception. We will achieve this by acting as a catalyst to increase awareness and acceptance of the issues, creating the momentum for government and society to develop appropriate responses.
