1.2.b. Sponsor education to dropout children:
Students from low socio-economic backgrounds are at much higher risk of dropping out which could be due to several reasons such as inadequate parenting, inability to afford the educational expenditure, poor schooling infrastructure, remote area, de-motivated teachers, pressures to augment family income, accompanied by a view that schooling has limited economic returns; peers with low aspirations; poor nutrition and health. VMMK is running Special Schools for 200 such dropout children. In this schools the children are provided with free accommodation, food, protection, clothing etc. Every child needs Rs. 1500 per month to continue his/her studies in our special school. So, please pick up a child and sponsor this child.

VMMK is working among Transgenders for their HIV/AIDS risks and to prevent them from the occurrence and risks of HIV/AIDS. During our intervention VMMK found that the Transgender are at significant risk for HIV as a result of greater risk of violence and discrimination in health services. VMMK have identified 335 Transgenders out of which 89 are affected by HIV/AIDS and they are positive. They are very vulnerable to poverty and they are struggle for their day to day livelihood.

1.2.d. Sponsor a senior citizen:
As a result of changing economic conditions and scarce employment opportunities in rural areas there is continuous migration of young and the abled to urban centres within the state and outside in search of work. This has resulted in them leaving their older and invalid parents in their rural homes and they are leading a lonely life without any one to take care of them. They find it difficult to get daily food, health care and other basic needs. According to a VMMK survey in its working villages it was found that 42% of senior citizens are living alone. They need somebody to help them to give food and health care. So, VMMK started a Home named KALPA THARU (A holy tree which gives all needs for the human beings) to look after these senior citizens. In this home the senior citizens are provided with free accommodation, food, health care, entertainment, get together facilities. This home is run by the donations given by well wishers and philanthropists. A senior citizen needs About 90 INR or 1.5 USD daily for his/her daily food, accommodation and health care. We humbly request all of you to support this noble cause with your kind contributions. Please pick up a senior citizen and sponsor him/her.
