SOS Children's Village Project [Project ID: SOS]
The SOS village
currently supports about 275 children. More than half of them (who are at high schools and
colleges) stay outside the village. A family consists of 9 to 10 children and a mother.
One can sponsor a child or sponsor his education and the sponsor can also decide the
sponsoring period. The rates for sponsoring the complete expense of a child is Rs: 250/-
per month and that for the education only is Rs: 50/- per month.
The project has started on Jan 1, 2000. Currently Kripa is sponsoring 7 children.
We are planning to enhance and continue the support with your help. The project
coordinator in US is Giri (firstname.lastname@example.org) and local
contact will be Sujeesh (SujeeshCK@yahoo.com).
SOS will update Sujeesh and Kripa with the details of the sponsored children regularly.
Members of Kripa can visit the children whenever possible. This will give us more
realistic picture of the needs of the children. SOS also welcomes this.

Yakkara Sravana Samsara School [Project ID: YAKKARA]
Yakkara Sravana Samsara School started in 1982 for the deaf and dump. School is running with
the help of Central and State Governments. The funds from the Government are not enough to
meet the complete expenses. The school is kept running with the help of donations from
the general public and parents of the children studying there.
This project is meant for helping disabled kids. We have promised to set up a fully equipped
computer lab for the high school kids to learn and practice computer skills. As a first step,
we provided one computer to the School. Now there is a plan to start courses with the help
of LBS for students after high school.
SHILPA [Project ID: SHILPA]
SHILPA is a special school where 45 children of varying ages and with differing degrees of
mental and physical disability, are taught basic self-help skills. Things that come
naturally to normal children are extremely difficult for these youngsters.
Shilpa need funds to carry on the good work. . It takes around Rs 2000/- only to sponsor
a kid for one year in Shilpa. They also need funds to set up infrastructure. Kripa is
planning to sponsor 5 kids in Shilpa during next one year.

GECT IEEE magazine subscription [Project ID: GECT IEEE]
Kripa has provided the
financial aid to subscribe seven relevant IEEE magazines to help and improve the technical
skills of the students in Govt. Engineering College Thrissur.
Provide Technical Access
This is an area where Kerala's students are lacking direction. Poor, but brilliant students are not getting sufficient directions for their future due to unavailability of information. Kripa would like to initiate a study and would like to help those students or schools. We will provide the information or books to the schools, which can be saved in the library for future reference.
Provide food and drinking water
Even now people in certain areas of Kerala are suffering from shortage of drinking water. Kripa will put some effort in identifying a few locations where this help is absolutely needed.
