Act & Help is a French NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) founded in 2007, with no political or religious affiliation. Its goal is to fight poverty and homelessness for people in greatest need. Act & Help actions are centered in Varanasi (Banaras) , in one of the poorest states in India, where it manages: A home for vulnerable young girls exposed to sex work, drugs and street violence; A school tuition and healthcare program for children from very poor families; A vocational training for teenagers from families in dire need; The drilling of wells and pumps for free drinking water in poor villages; An emergency medical assistance for the slum people.
Al produced a film for Act & Help's Disha House, an incredible home for at-risk young girls that is one of the most beautiful places we've had the pleasure to document. In Nov 2017 we also held our first fundraising photography auction in Paris to raise money for Disha House.
