About Our india Foundation
Rural India especially the villages of north India lags behind in all social indices like health care, education, sanitation and livelihood opportunities. It is in this backdrop that the activists working in various NGO's have come together to extend an helping hand to their fellow country men through Our India Foundation. The earnest attempt is to pass over all the positive achievements kerala have made on the human development front to the needy villages of India. On the educational front , the first of the schools it plans to set up in north India is coming up in Kandla , Western Uttar Pradesh. A human resource development centre and a teachers training centre is also in the offing. A hospital catering to women and children is also in the pipeline. The organisation hopes the interventions at kandla becomes a successful model for development and worth replicating in other needy villages of India.
I don't believe in charity. I believe in solidarity. Charity is so vertical. It goes from the top to the bottom. Solidarity is horizontal. It respects the other person. I have a lot to learn from other people.
