Support a Home for 20 Homeless Girls in India

by ATMA Foundation


This project will support the care, boarding and education of 20 homeless girls at ATMA Gurukulam Girls' Home in Thrissur District, Kerala, India.

total goal


Institutionalised care of destitute children in India is often limited to providing them food, shelter and clothing. To get out of the poverty cycle, these children also need access to quality education, opportunities for sustenance, and individual mentoring support.


At ATMA Gurukulam, we facilitate regular schooling, extra academic support, remediation for learning difficulties, leadership training, value clarification, and regular training in dance, music and martial arts by experts. They are mentored by trained volunteers and professionals. Their physical health is improved through wholesome meals, daily yoga and regular health check.

Long-Term Impact

The ATMA Gurukulam Project is now in the first phase, with a girls' home for 20 children. Once successive phases are completed, it will provide a home to atleast 150 children who are homeless, helping them grow into responsible citizens and leaders in their chosen fields.
