Help 60 Children to have nutritious food

I, Edwin Livingston, and my family (Sani - my wife, Ryan - my 4 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. All our 60 kids attend school now. We wish to make them healthy and confident to remove the stigma and oppression over them. 

One of our main needs is the food supply. We give one nutritional meal per day to all children. It costs Rs. 40000 ($606) per month. Through this fundraiser, I desire to raise 6 months' support so that it will be effectively used to provide food for kids from January to June 2018 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.

Dear Supporters,

Thanks again for your valuable support. By the grace of God, we bought a piece of land by making a payment of a portion of the total amount, for our children and trying to have constructions for kitchen, classrooms, dining, and meetings. We are supposed to make the full payment on or before 28th February 2018. We had been in a rented building and had to vacate it due to the difficulties our children were facing. We are thankful to God and you for being an encouragement to us.

Dear Supporters,

By the grace of God and through the support of many wonderful donors, we could provide food to our kids without ceasing. Happy to say that we could improve the quality of food and the way we serve. Purchase of some kitchen utensils made us able to provide different kinds of food.

It is another joy that we increased the number of children from 49 to 60. We took 11 more tribal kids from colonies of worst conditions. We see great changes happening in them.

Thank you for the support.
