Chitrakoot is a small town of about 35,000 people situated on
the Mandakini river,a tributary of the Ganges and lies approximately
500 miles South East of Delhi. It is on the border between Madhya
Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, two of the poorest and most deprived
areas of rural India. It is reached from Delhi by air to Khajuraho
and then by a four hour road journey, or by a train journey of
14 hours. An air strip is currently being built which will greatly help access.

Chitrakoot is best known as a major historic religious centre of the Hindu faith and
as a centre for pilot studies in self reliance based on the Deendayal Research
Institute in the town. There are 500 surrounding villages with a total population
of over a million, all struggling with extreme poverty and an almost total absence
of health care. The Chitrakoot Project Charity aims to address a major aspect
of the health problems and understands that an unhealthy individual
is unable to be productive and self reliant.
