Trivandrum Don Bosco Veedu Society with the help of GlobalGiving donors supported 50 underprevilaged with notebooks and pens. These children are identified through our Child HELPLINE. The children belong to the district of Trivandrum, Kerala. The children were identified during the home visit by the team members. Notebooks are distributed among the needy children. Their smile and interest in studies motivated the team
The distribution were carried during the month of december, january and February. The distribution supported the children with new notebooks and pens. A student commented that her father was bedridden and her mother is an homemade and her family find it difficult to support her with materials. The timely help from Don Bosco was a reason that she continued her education.

Enlight: Empowering other Communities
By Fr. Thomas P.D - Director
Enlight sessions for fisher women from Pulluvila
ENLIGHT: Enlightening Homes and Lives
Enlight not only empowered the community of Karimadom but also it empowered two other marginalized community in the District of Trivandrum. Enlight @ School organized a half-day bulb assembling training for 10 marginalized fisherwomen community from Pulluvila. We received good response from the women. From 10 women who participated in the training three of them started a small-scale LED bulb manufacturing unit at their home
Apart from the training at the LEO XIII school, six trained students from Christ Nagar School visited Edison’s Empower center (A center owned and managed by famous Magician from Kerala named Mr. Gopinath Muthukad to empower the differently abled children and bring them to the mainstream of the society). The students from Christ Nagar School trained 30 mothers of differently abled children at Edison’s Empower center. Mr. Gopinath Muthukad had facebook post in his page about the Enlight @ school program, this created lot of attention on the enlight project.
Greetings from Trivandrum Don Bosco Veedu Society!
In this quarter GlobalGiving helped us to raise $90 for donating new clothes to the street children rescued by Don bosco Veedu society. Christmas it’s the most wonderful time of the year... unless it’s not. For many of the street children, this time of year may be depressing, stressful or simply go by unnoticed due to more pressing problems.
Your Donations helped us to provide 15 boys from the shelter home with a pair of new shirt and pants. This support helped us to maintain the smile in every child at the shelter
Don Bosco Veedu’s work continues…….. We sincerely hope that you will stay involved
