Bikes for School Children


As presented by Tency Alapatt at the Onam Program, we identified a Government LP School in an impoverished tribal area near Kalpetta (GLPS Vrindavan) with 18 students, all of whom had to walk long ways to come to school. We bought bicycles for all of them and delivered them right before Onam. Our own Suraj Sukumaran was present at the occasion, and, as he stated, it was truly a precious and eye-opening experience. The cost of the project was $956, and the benefit was truly amazing. The funds for this project came from the General Charity Contributions of $1,440 at the Onam function.
