"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

This NGO aims to train the tribal youth in Gudulur district of Tamil Nadu. They already run a hospital in the region, the Gudulur Adivasi Hospital, which provides secondary level curative care.





Being a remote area, this hospital has provided much needed access to health services. They have had tremendous success in reducing the infant mortality rate in the region, even beating the national average.





This project aims to provide training to tribal youth in paramedical courses. 6-10 boys and girls will be supported to get higher education with a hope that they will return to the region and help with running the hospital.
