Our sincere thanks to the donors of this project!

In continuation to our project activities at Chennai with the support of donors , the activities carried out are been updated.

The residence of Giriyappa road , a slum of Teynampet , Chennai ,  covers around 300 lined households, of which 100 are asbestos roofed while the remaining are thatched houses. The houses are single roomed (approx.75 to 100 sq.ft.) and have poor living conditions. The room has to be used for all domestic purposes like cooking, sleeping and cleaning vessels. They do not have proper drainage facilities. The houses with asbestos roofing are provided with a toilet for every 8 households, whereas the thatched houses are provided with two common toilets which again are poorly structured.  As far as drinking water is concerned they are provided with common corporation taps. Major occupation comprises of housekeeping, construction labourers, and painters.

Their immediate need was cooking stoves and utensils. We are distributing stoves to the residents of this locality. The highlighted feature of this stove is that it is carbon emission free, smokeless and doesn’t pollute the environment. Provision of kitchen utensils to these residents will be distributed in the next following weeks. 

Besides, they are given an orientation programme and the points of discussion were on the various emergency preparedness aspects to be handle during disaster period, the relief measures provided by the Government and how  to approach them, the formalities involved in retrieving legal documents like certificates, ration card, etc.

We will keep you updated with the various activities we reach out in the days ahead.

Together we can provide them hope!

Together we can provide them hope.

The recent floods have brought life-changing disaster to Chennai tossing up the routine activities of its residents.   As a result many have suffered immeasurable destruction, loss, damage and despair.

Your help in providing emergency assistance to these victims we believe has been a timely help at this critical moment.

Currently, there is a tremendous need for home utensils, toiletries, and other daily survival items.  Though our targeted areas were the slum areas of Saidapet, our donations were reached out to other needy residents as we found many NGOs and Government programmes supporting them in ways and means they could afford. However your donation was utilized in purchasing mats, mosquito nets and bed sheets to 100 victims in the areas of MKV Nagar, Vysarpadi.

Time is critical and you can help make a difference. We'll continue our updates on our disaster relief efforts here in Chennai. Thank you for your caring and support during this devastating time.

We wholeheartedly thank you for your support!

Dear Friends,

We hope you are all doing well.

The primary purpose of our mission is to provide poor, less educated youth the opportunity to acquire a skill and build a prospective career.

Students enrolled for the academic year 2015-16 in Catering is 78 and Nursing 35. Donations received were spent towards these students’ book materials, buss pass and provision of free lunch to them which will help them continue their studies without any difficulties.

Over the past three months, our youth have continued to benefit from the training programmes. This will help them gain work experience by applying methods and theories learned in classes and will be a great way for them to acquaint themselves with the skill acquired as well as the confidence that they have chosen the correct career path. English coaching class was taken up.

We are constantly grateful for the support we receive from donors and look forward to updating you about our activities.

We wish you all a happy holiday season.

Thank you again and best regards!
