Ranjith's life is now filled with possibilities!
Ranjith is from a poor tribal family. His father works as a daily wage labourer and his mother as school help.
The family of four lived in a hut and struggled to put food on the table. Ranjith’s parents did not send him to school as they could not afford to pay for the education or the travel to schools outside the colony.
When Wayanad Girijana Seva Trust offered to pay for Ranjith’s education, his parents agreed to send him to their school. The school also takes care of his shelter, food and all other needs.
Ranjith is now in class V. He is a well disciplined student who enjoys learning. He also like to sing and dance and knows that there are now different possibilities for his future. Seeing his progress, his parents have sent his sister to school as well.
You can pay for a child like Ranjith to keep going to school. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED. Education is the only chance for children from tribal families to escape poverty.

Wayanad Girijana Seva Trust's Update
The re-opening of school after summer vacation this year was delayed a little because of NIPAH virus fever in this district.
208 child beneficiaries were enrolled this academic session. They were comfortably housed, fed 3 times with Kerala dishes, and provided casual wears and medical care.
The recent flood mishap lasted for 10 days across this district. This caused heavy losses to the parents of these children. The children were safe in the school as it is located in a safe location. Because proper care is given to them, they enjoyed happy and cheerful days here in the last quarter.
For the next quarter, will serve fruits as supplement as there are only vegetarian dishes in the menu.
