Deepavali Greetings from all the kids at Vanavil!!!

Vanavil is an alternative residential school working closely with two of the most marginalized communities in Tamil Nadu.

Thanks to your overwhelming and continued support, we are back again to ask for your support to make another beautiful memory of colors and light in our kids' lives.

As is our tradition, we give a new set of clothes and a festive breakfast with a sweet box to all the children. Despite rising costs, we are trying to provide this magical experience at Rs. 1000/child.

Children at Vanavil come from nomadic tribes who are traditionally very poor and extremely marginalized. Most of them beg for a living. Without Vanavil, these kids would go out begging for crackers and sweets during Deepavali time. Vanavil has been providing a safe haven to such children since 2005.

Please join us in creating another magical day for all the beautiful children of Vanavil. Your contribution will add color to the kids.

About Vanavil:
Vanavil is an alternative school working closely with two of the most marginalized communities in Tamil Nadu. Boom Boom Mattukarars and Narikuravars are ancient nomadic tribes who have been forced to eke out a living through begging and selling minor wares. Vanavil was started in 2005 in the aftermath of the Tsunami by a handful of youngsters and has grown with the help of individual donors and foundations who are committed to the cause of education of marginalized and underprivileged children.
