What Is 'HELPS (Higher Education Ladder Promoting Students)'?

‘HELPS’ is a new Charitable endeavour of the SHARE & CARE CHARITABLE SOCIETY with its Head Office at Kaipuzha, which functions as an institution and seems as an embodiment of charity, humanism and brotherhood for executing the charitable deeds for the deserving and needy in a different and exemplary manner. “There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up” -this famous quotation of great John Homes is the guiding principle and the source of this charitable society.

This institution functions as the source of solace and hope for the hopeless, downtrodden, people suffering from incurable disease, mental retardation and physical handicap by providing financial help to such people for educating their children and those children who become orphans after the death of their parents. In other words, this charitable venture is for providing higher education for the orphans and helpless children whose parents are unhealthy and unable to pursue the education of their children.

Functions of 'HELPS'?

To open up a new venue for financial help for the higher education of the orphans, destitute children whose parents cannot earn their livelihood due to ill health or physical handicap, HELPS provides new vistas and horizons of a new world of hope, in spite of their limitations leading to new dreams to be fulfilled.

Consequent to the strenuous effort, during the last three years of a group of people with the common motives of performing, charitable deeds out of their humanitarian outlook gave birth to this venture to serve the educational needs of children of ailing parents or families without an earning member who cannot earn for their livelihood owing to health problems.

The project of the ‘HELPS’ is intended to support financially the poor and the downtrodden so as to enable their children to pursue higher education and to become self-reliant and support their families by securing a job suitable to them, with the help of the financial aid provided by this charitable institution which imbibed its inspiration from the patronage of blessed Mother Teresa, the symbol of love and charity.
