Summary

The needs in the community of Kerala are great and varied. Our aim is to reach and offer assistance to as many people as possible. We work with a number of local partner organisations- schools, a relief settlement, vocational schools and a charity supporting abused children. Our aim is to offer help to people who are stuck by their circumstances. We seek to empower them to create a new future for themselves by offering education, women's empowerment and health care services.

Challenge

Welfare in the state of Kerala is limited and even though development is increasing and minimum wage is good, there are still those who don't benefit. Alcoholism is a common problem. Migrant workers struggle without family or government support. Young women from poor backgrounds lack encouragement and guidance so they get stuck in the cycle of poverty. Local slums are home to families that live on less than $1.50/day and can't send their children to school. We aim to help all of these people.

Solution

We aim to provide quality education and English tuition to those who otherwise couldn't afford it. We will provide continued assistance to members of the local slum, assisting them with vocational training, creating better living conditions and ensure that there is access to health care services. Our mission is to empower the members of the Kerala community to create their own future. We want to encourage people and provide them with opportunities that they might otherwise not have access to.

Long-Term Impact

Through constant communication with our local partners and beneficiaries, we will be able to access our impact and pinpoint needs. In the long-term we aim to increase capacity at vocational training centres so that more people will have access to skills training. We will grow our women's empowerment programs and provide educational opportunities to children. Our mission is to utilise funds on maximum impact projects identified through community collaboration.
