The 2004 Tsunami led to the genesis for H.E.L.P (“Human Education and Liberation for Poor”) as it stands today. HELP Trust is an NGO registered under Trust Act in 2005, we are an 8 year old organization.
Mr.Ganapathirajan, a social activist, started a makeshift school for children who lost everything in the Tsunami. The plight and miserable living conditions of women and children in rural villages of Tiruneveli moved him and he formally started H.E.L.P.
H.E.L.P took shape as a non-profit, non religious, non-political, charitable organization (NGO) registered under Govt. of Tamilnadu, with an objective to save underprivileged children who are not enrolled in school and have limited access to basic education in India from prostitution, bonded labour and unskilled employment. The trust works with children, women and youth who are in agriculture, fishing community, daily wages labour and Beedi rolling, living in the slums and very remote villages of Tamilnadu.
Providing access to education, skills and raising awareness in these children and their families are the main themes that H.E.L.P focuses on to bring about sustainable changes in their lives. Most projects are run with the help of churches, women, youth and local leaders and funded by large hearted individuals and organisations.
