In Korukonda, on India's eastern coast, most people make a living working in agriculture. They are almost entirely dependent on monsoon rains for irrigation, which leaves them vulnerable to crop and food shortages. 

To help overcome malnutrition and diseases, families need to improve their livelihoods to better provide for their children.

Families in Korukonda need access to skills training and ways to generate additional income.
 

Partnering together for a sustainable future.

By sponsoring children in Korukonda community, you are making an incredible difference in vulnerable children’s lives.

Your support is helping Korukonda community by improving the physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the most vulnerable children.

Banyan Tree

The Banyan Tree is the national tree of India.

As the national tree, the Banyan or Indian Fig Tree is a symbol of pride that's integral to the nation's identity. For centuries the banyan tree has been a central point for the village communities of India. Even today, the banyan tree is the focal point of village life, and the village council meets under the shade of this tree. 

Its branches root themselves like new trees giving rise to more trunks and branches. Because of this characteristic, the tree is considered immortal and plays a significant role in myths and legends of India.

The tree is often a symbol of the fabled 'Kalpa Vriksha' or the 'Tree of Wish Fulfilment'. It is associated with longevity because it has important medicinal properties.
