KERALA : Jithin Philip from Manayil in Kerala is the son of an agriculturist studying to become a MBA. So are other students like Chinchu Babu from Arunkannil, Jinumol Raju from Parackal or Akhila Susan Issac from Paikattu with different ambitions.
All are young students from poor families of Kerala’s Idukki, a backward district. They have lofty aims to complete professional degree courses like CA, MCA or B Sc Nursing but their parents are from below the poverty line like farmers, helpers, tailor and drivers.
These determined and promising students are banking on the help of the rich and well-to-do for sponsors to complete their studies.
These students are from the lowest strata of the society. By supporting them with their education we are extending our Christian compassion and hope.
This is an educational assistance programme for poor students. Students from financially disadvantaged families are selected and listed on their online site.
The students need further support and sponsorship. From the IOH readers, those willing to support such under privileged kids with any amount, in your name or in memory of your loved ones or just anonymous can get in touch. These children need the help of one and all to break the generational cycle of poverty and misery.
As a Christmas gift, IOH readers are requested to mail their cheque to:
