What we do

The Venkat Trust provides and improves education for the children of Kovalam. This includes buildings, equipment, teachers, school fees, scholarships and sponsorships. The Trust has a University Fund, which pays for the village’s young people who do well at school to go on to university. It also provides support for those who choose to go onto college and vocational training

We’ve made four short films about the Trust’s work.

The most recent is Goodbye poverty. It’s called education

Thanks to Salim Salam, who took our rather shaky footage and turned it into Learning Lessons in Kovalam.

And to Mike Mirams for editing Changing Lives in Kovalam
