60 x 30 x 12 = 21600 meals. Help us to serve better!


I, Edwin Livingston, and my family (Sani - my wife, Ryan - my 5-year-old son) have been working in Wayanad for many years, by the grace of God. In 2011 we started a Food Program for the 6 tribal children in Thottamoola village of Wayanad district in North Kerala, India. The kids were going through starvation and were dropouts from school. The tribal colonies in this village have numerous kids in the same condition or worse. A large number of children go for day labor for not more than 20 rupees.


We registered an organization for the children and youths, the next generation, and started adding more kids and involving their parents in the development of the kids. At present, 

  • We have 60 children in our project
  • 50 of them are tribal children
  • We provide one nutritious meal every day
  • Give classes and tuition every day
  • Provide new clothes, hygiene, and educational materials
  • Give arts and sports training
  • Do all possible things to develop the children

    Paniyar, Naykkar, Kurumar, and Kattunaykkar are the tribes in which our children belong to. Parents are illiterate and unskilled day laborers. They get work very rarely and struggle to provide food (not at all nutritious) at least two times at home. 

Through our YUVA CDC, we have been transforming the children and community. Our kids changed a lot from health, dress, manners, to education. All our 60 kids attend school now. We wish to make them healthy and confident to remove the stigma and oppression over them. We want them to be role models by achieving success in their lives in all realms. 



One of our main needs is food supply. We give one nutritional meal per day for all children. It costs Rs. 40000 ($606) per month. Through this fundraiser, I desire to raise one year support so that it will be effectively used to provide food for kids from April 2019 to March 2020 without ceasing.  I encourage and invite you all to participate in this effort through big or small contribution and to help the children to grow strong. Every rupee is important for their life and growth and we are accountable for the same. I also invite you to visit our children or contact us for getting more knowledge on our kids. Thank you for reading and considering to support, for changing the lives of many children!

Thank you,
Edwin Livingston.

Once again thank you very much for your sacrificial support. As you all know we use this amount to provide food for all our kids. Every weekday evening we provide dinner and on weekends we give lunch and snacks. Daily visit to the project help the children to keep the school attendance above 85%, be healthy and improve in Education.

Once we use this fund for their food expenses, we will update you all. Thank you very much!
