Supporting Nutritional, Medical, Educational and Environmental Outreach in South India.

Many of our program themes in Nutrition, Health Care, Education and the environment are centered in and around the small village of Thirumalaikodi in The Vellore District, Tamil Nadu, South India.   Program venues are in schools and hospitals in Vellore City, rural villages around Thirumalaikodi, or even in the remote Ghatt mountain ranges to the south and west in Vellore District.  We reach over 400 villages.

Growth Of Our Impact In India

The changes we have witnessed in the village of Thirumalaikodi and  throughout the entire Vellore and Tiruvannamalai Districts have been simply amazing to see over the last two decades we have been engaged in charitable work.

  • Better quality and more available nutrition is improving the health and lives of people.
  • Job skills acquired through vocational training programs have resulted in increased family stability and an increased family income in the area.
  • The average temperature has dropped by about 4 degrees as the multi-year reforestation program refreshes and re-energizes the local environment.
  • Villagers now benefit from cleaner water, better sanitation,  less disease and a more comfortable physical environment.
  • Student nurses are continually being trained and encouraged to practice their profession locally so that better health care can be available for everyone
  • Good quality grade school education is now within easier reach for disadvantaged local children, up to 70% of whom are first generation learners.

Join Tens of Thousands of Caring People

Our charitable partners in South India also organize various outreach programs to provide clothing, blankets and other basic personal supplies and amenities to impoverished individuals, families and differently abled individuals in small communities in this district of South India. We assist at risk families and groups with special needs in the area, with particular attention to families with only one wage earner, often in very remote areas. 

Canadians Sharing Locally + Globally provides medical, nutritional, educational and environmental outreach in India. As an entirely volunteer-orientated organization with no employees, every donation is invested efficiently and directly into our impactful humanitarian programs.
