Wayanad Girijana Seva Trust works towards re-schooling school drop-outs among the children from the impoverished tribal (Aboriginal) communities in Wayanad district of Kerala India.
The school is located in Mattilayam, one of the most backward and the most remote areas having a sizable tribal community population. It was started with a view to contributing to the education process on re-schooling school drop-outs and simultaneously giving them vocational training. The organization runs a residential tribal Vidyalaya where children from depressing backgrounds with alcoholic parents are sheltered and provided with all needs free-of-cost.
Mr. Baburaj, the Chairman hails from an orthodox family. He leads a simple life and has been serving this tribal community for 20 years. A graduate in commerce, he left his job at Mumbai to dedicate all his time to serve these people. According to him, this service is a dedication to God as these children are God's own.
