Palliport and Puthuvypu
Between 1998 and 2021 we supported orphanages in Palliport and Puthuvypu. Since 2021 our entire focus is on constructing houses for indigent families, our school program for children as well as our employment programs for for women living below the poverty line.
With donations and the support of Dach überm Kopf a large number of girls were supplied with school uniforms, school books, and daily meals. In addition, Dach überm Kopf provided valuable resources and education to the young girls so they are skilled and able to afford a life above the poverty line once they leave the orphanage.
Since orphanages do not get financial aid from the government in India, the sisters of the Carmelites who run the orphanages were previously dependent on continuous donations and support from Dach überm Kopf.
