Exciting partnership with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC)

Gabriel Project Mumbai is excited to announce its partnership with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC).  As the world's largest Jewish humanitarian assistance organization, JDC works in more than 70 countries and in Israel to rescue Jews in danger, bring relief to needy Jews, revitalize connections to Jewish identity and culture, and provide non-sectarian disaster relief and long-term development assistance worldwide.

In India, Gabriel Project Mumbai is collaborating with JDC’s local office and staff to develop unique opportunities for GPM program participants to engage and interact with the local Indian Jewish community. Members of JDC's Indian Jewish youth group, JYP (Jewish Youth Pioneers), are volunteering with international Jewish volunteers in the GPM program to alleviate poverty, improve nutrition and health to hundreds of children living in the slums of Mumbai.

Gabriel Project is also partnering with JDC Entwine, JDC’s young adult platform, and starting in 2013, all GPM volunteers will apply and get placed in India through the Entwine Global Jewish Service Corps. Entwine’s Global Jewish Service Corps sends young Jews around the world to directly engage with JDC’s global mission and actively fulfill the value of Jewish responsibility through service placements in overseas Jewish communities, in Israel, and in countries where JDC is involved with humanitarian interventions.

Gabriel Project Mumbai is excited for this great opportunity to partner with such an outstanding, long-established Jewish humanitarian organization and JDC is equally excited to be partnering with this effective grassroots attempt to alleviate poverty amongst some of India's most vulnerable children and populations.
