Support the educational requirements a tribal child

Thank you!

This program is fully funded because of donors like you.


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.

Owing to Covid-19 pandemic our school closed for summer vacation in March 2020 has not yet reopened for resuming classes except students of class X reopening around the corner for resuming to complete their practical classes towards appearing in a public exam to be held after a few months. Children in roll of other grades are safe in their living colonies and are provided with essential dry food kits, study materials etc. as and when required by this trust and online whatSapp classes by their teachers concerned to complete their lessons as per syllabus. The Managing Trustees make frequent visits to distant tribal villages from where our 200 plus school children belong, interact with them & parents with consent of each colony chieftain. Teachers will also visit their colonies once in a week by rotation,  assembling  in an open-spot in their village after observing all covid norms & clear doubts on lessons  especially to the students of UP-High schools. The excellence of learning through direct contact with teachers is missing in online classes but almost all our students will enthusiastically respond even online. Few photos our children attended regular classes in different grades from files are submitted.

Program 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.
