This project will help to construct an urgently needed building with better facilities for 25 underprivileged girls at ATMA Gurukulam Girls' Home in Thrissur District, Kerala, India, and also support their care, boarding and education.
The ATMA Gurukulam Girls' Home provides care and shelter to homeless girls, with focus on their education and holistic development. With educational, co-curricular and mentoring support from us, the girls are showing tremendous improvements in various spheres. As we are functioning currently in a leased building, it restricts the facilities which can be given to the children, and limits the intake.
This project will support the purchase of land and construction of a new building for ATMA Gurukulam. This will ensure the children a safe and permanent residence until they complete their education, get a job and can stand on their own feet. This will also help us to give the children better facilities for holistic development, and support more children in need.
This project, once able to provide all the envisioned facilities, will help them grow into responsible citizens and leaders in their chosen fields. The facilities can also be expanded to accommodate more children in need. Every few years, as some children move out after being suitably placed in life, new children will take their place. So, over the years, hundreds of homeless children can be given an opportunity to spread their wings and fly.
