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


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 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.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you very much for your past support. By God's grace and your support.  We have completed one more year and looking at 2019 with hope and expectation. The past years were wonderful and coming years are going to be glorious, we are sure. Our children are growing fast and we are excited to help them more to achieve their dreams and visions. At present we are looking for a kitchen and dining space so that we can prepare food in a quality environment and can serve it adding more dignity to our little princes and princesses. Expecting your help, prayers, and support. I am adding the last Christmas video herewith, which is another product of your generous support.

We monitor the children who need special attention regarding their health. We have monthly medical check-ups and constantly follow up on the BMI of children. For the last six months, we give special food for selected children to improve their health. We also give more emphasis to the hygiene of children through classes, demonstrations and awareness programs for the parents.
We have monthly parents' meet and we visit the children's houses once every month. We use these occasions to communicate the health and hygiene of the children with parents.

We are pledged to make a tremendous change in the lives of our children and with your help, we know that it is possible. Thank you!

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.
