The main goal of Alamelu Children's Homes (ACH) is to support the children at the Sri Kanyakumari Gurukula Ashram (SKGA)just outside the town of Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu, India. We are a small volunteer organization, so that virtually all the money we collect goes to the children to support their daily needs, health care, and education. SKGA is a registered charity in India and houses about 150 destitute and homeless children, and often their mothers.
About 15 years ago SKGA started a school on their property; it has an excellent record and also serves neighbouring villages. SKGA has also organized free daycare centres in villages closeby. Alamelu Children's Homes(ACH) has a Agency Agreement, sanctioned by Canada Revenue Agency, allowing us to officially support the work of SKGA.
