Pragadeesh is the son of a fisherman....and his dreams when he was 5 years old was to become a Doctor! He joined Gurukulam when he was 4 years old. Today - Pragadeesh is doing his 10th standard at Gurukulam. His dreams have changed over the years, but he is well on his way to becoming whatever he wants to be. And it is thanks to each and every one who supports Gurukulam, that children like Pragadeesh can dream of a future and have a chance to make it a reality. Read more about it at...


Rehabilitation of Pannayur and Annamalaicherry, Tsunami hit villages, a grand success story...


In wake of the recent Tsunami calamity that hit our country, the volunteers of Trust Children along with those of Yogoda Satsanga Society of India immediately took up the charge of providing relief across the affected coastal areas.

Within a few days, 8 villages and about 4000 people were provided relief with more than 5000 kgs of Rice, 1500 kgs of dal, utensils, safe drinking water, medicines, blankets, sleeping mats, toiletries and many more. As relief work was underway and people were recovering from the trauma of Tsunami, Trust Children initiated rehabilitation of villages through its "Adopt a Village" program.

Trust Children & Yogoda Satsanga Society of India have adopted Panayur Kuppam with the permission of the Collector of the region. Along with rehabilitation, it is our endeavor to provide people a new life through improved infrastructure, better social integration and self reliance.

It gives us immense pleasure to announce that rehabilitation of Pannayur is now completed with:

  • 37 fibre boats, 20 engines repaired
  • 88 bundles of net material distributed for repair of nets
  • Group accident insurance with hospitalization benefit provided to 315 fishermen through United India Insurance Co. for Rs. 100,000 each
  • Construction of Public toilets for better hygiene.
  • Construction of dispensary/community hall.
  • Debris of the collapsed houses cleaned by bulldozers
  • Volunteers and villagers themselves cleaning the beach and the village
  • A warning system in place to help fishermen
  • Village Youth formed the Sea King Sports Club to undertake the responsibility of maintaining the improved infrastructure of village
  • Two huge overhangs have been constructed on the beach for the fishermen to do up their nets, etc. away from the scorching heat.

Fishermen back to sea  

Overhangs for fishermen 

With Pannayur on its feet, we took charge of Annamalaicherry, one of the worst hit coastal villages. To start with, 650 families were supplied with dry ration.

Tsunami had silted the river that connects this village to the sea and there was hardly ankle deep water in the river. To get them back on their feet, around 1.5 km stretch of this river had to be desilted. 


Trust Children, with Yogoda Satsanga society of India, took the initiative and the entire stretch of river has been de-silted. Fishermen are already back to the sea and the good news is their catch is now even better than ever!

Construction of dispensary building at Panayur has been completed (thanks largely to the funds raised by UWCSEA, Singapore). Our special thanks to the doctors from Ramachandra Medical College who organized the first medical camp at the dispensary. 

The dispensary building has been duly handed over to the Panayur village Panchayat for the benefit of the village community.

Medical Camp 

Public Toilets  

The construction of public toilets has been completed (special thanks to the Yogoda SatsangaSociety of India, who have borne most of the cost).

A grand ceremony was organized on 

11th Oct, 2005 to officially handover the village amenities to village Panchayat, as part our Tsunami Rehabilitation work. 


Our special thanks to Hon’ble Minister Thiru D Jayakumar, Minister for Law and Information Technology, who not only appreciated our work but also extended full support to our future endeavours.
