  • To extend a helping hand to these orphan’s families by way of providing financial assistance to the education of children

Scheme Details

  • The statistics reveals that in Kerala, around 75,000 children below 18 years are living in orphanages.
  • Around 1500 orphanages are functioning in Kerala. Almost 80- 90% of the children in orphanages have families and relatives. Many orphans and vulnerable children slip further into poverty once the family’s main bread winner stops working or dies
  • They are not properly fed; they have no shelter, nutritious food, health care, education or any recreation. Most of them are facing economic and social exploitation. They are deprived of love and affection of the family and are often unwanted by the family members.
  • The mission has initiated the project that aims at bringing these children to the main stream of the society.
