We are a non-profitable Indian, UNO member organization providing support to the neediest people of Tamil Nadu, specifically to
the Poor Children
9 years providing care & school access
Since our creation in January 2010, we have permitted dozens of poor children to access education in good conditions by giving:
-free uniforms, material and scolarships
-free diner and medicine each night
-English lessons & homework support
-emergency support against marriage and labour
It is important to note that all our actions are undertaken regardless to the religion, cast, gender or ethnicity of the child.
Our Projects & the Plan
Besides saving children, we also plan 2 other projects for neglected women and seniors. For the moment, we lack space to create the facilities required to welcome destitute women and elders.
As soon as we will be able to buy the neighbour field, we will build a Destitue Women Center and an Old Age Home to provide dignity and protection to each needy person.
Spread the word about our program. Even a small donation will make a huge difference.
Join our team and share your skills for the needy people welfare

Quick Sum up on our location and situation
Vivegam Godfrey Trust was founded by Mr. Edwin Prabu Kumar in January 2010.
Vivegam Godfrey Trust is situated near Danishpet, in the middle of two Districts, namely Salem and Dharmapuri, in Tamil Nadu India. Salem is the 5th largest city of Tamil Nadu located in the central part of the southern most state of India. The area ia almost completely surrounded by hills. Salem is also known as the Mango city in Tamilnadu.
This region went through terrible droughts in 2016-17, that destroyed most of the crops and led to many casualties. It has not been raining for 6 months, including during the monsoon, and there are good reasons to believe we will have to pass similar or even worse conditions during the coming summer, as the wells are getting empty; and the river and lake are totally dried out!
Danishpet is surrounded with 291 villages, and the population is approximately 1,150,000. The majority of the people are Hindu in religious belief and less than 1% are Christians and Muslims. Mostly these village people are working with daily wages like agriculture and brick making. Most individuals receive a monthly income of around 50 Euros. Only 4% of all children have access to higher education (college or university degree). Most girls end their studies up with the 10th grade.
Vivegam Godfrey Trust cares for children, school dropouts, young girls, destitute women and elderly individuals in the villages surrounding Danishpet, India.
