Our Mission

JAINA's Jivdaya committee's main goal is to save animals from the slaughter house, and to provide nutrition, water, and healthcare for animals staying in panjarapoles. The Jivdaya committee also helps to build new sheds and to maintain existing sheds of panjarapoles. Each year, the Jivdaya committee receives appeals from panjarapoles all across India. The Jivdaya committee requests your support in taking care of these animals. The impact of even a small donation makes a big difference in the lives of these animals


To put it this in perspective, in India, the average cost of  saving a cow from the slaughterhouse is  $100.

To provide food, shelter, and medical care for a one cow for one year is only $200.

For $51 one hundred animals can be fed for a day.

2018 Goal - Collect and donate $70,000 in India and $10,000 in USA for Jivdaya. We are looking into several projects for donations in India. Jivdaya committee is looking forward to your ongoing support in 2018 to this worthy cause for needy panjarapoles and silent animals.
  1. $10,000 - Fund for Donation in USA
  2. $15,000 - Fund for building animal sheds in India
  3. $35,000 - Fund for providing Fodder to 35 Panjarapoles in India (Already sent $16000 to 16 panjarapoles)
  4. $10,000 - Save 100 animals from slaughter house in India ($100 per animal)
  5. $10,000 - Fund for annual maintenance for 50 animals in India ($10,000 – 50*$200/yr.)
