Hi  there,
My name is George J 36 years old from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, I am here to raise funds for Geo India Foundation, I am here to raise funds to help Families of Tribal villages.

Thank you for reading my appeal on behalf of Geo India Foundation, I am one of the trustees of our NGO.

Construction of a multipurpose center-for (Irula) tribal community which will bring skill development, empowerment, and community-driven approaches to gender and culture-sensitive employment and entrepreneurial initiatives.
Skill development and employment are some of the primary agents of transformation towards the development of the Irula community. It is an activity, or a series of activities, or a process that will improve the immediate living conditions and increase the potential for future living.

Based on the survey, conducted by Geo India Foundation the major job along the Irula community living in and around Rettamangalam village - jobs are tree cutting, and few members are part of the 100 days employment scheme. More than 84% of people are earning less than 24000/- per year and about 16% are earning more than 24000/- per year in these tribal community colonies.

The main purpose of the project is prepared to address the root causes which hinder the growth and self-empowerment of the community and thereby implement employment and skill developing solutions through our skill development training.

Beneficiary: More than 800 people from Irula tribes and other backward community people from rettamangalam, mangalam, ozhailur, perungozhi and vellpothur villages are the direct beneficiaries of this project.
Our humble beginnings.

We need your support for us to complete this project for the Irula tribe/ backward communities living around the Rettamangalam, Kancheepuram, Tamilnadu.

  • Funding for the cost of the 1500 sq. ft building project.
