Kinder Membership Drive

"Turning Walls To Doors"

So as to make it a larger success, we are undertaking a membership drive. In the process of the drive, we are searching for volunteers who wished to spread knowledge amongst the students. To take part in this initiative fill out this form: Volunteer Drive Form

Christmas Celebration

We at Helphen believe in spreading happiness through the torch of goodwill. This belief got aggravated along with the closing of the festive season of Christmas and so we planned to celebrate Christmas amongst the kids of Sacred hearts orphanage, Vellore. We distributed chocolates and stationaries amongst the kids, conducted games for them and hence justified to our belief.

Old Age Home Visit

To get into the depth of what old age is, our team organized a visit to Vallar Mudhiyor illam old age home, Vellore. What we deciphered from our visit was that the elders long for the love from their young ones. It was a satisfying experience for each and every member of our team as we were successful in filling the void in their hearts by conducting a number of activities.

Career Counselling and Stress Management

Career decisions are one of the most crucial decisions in a student’s life. With an understanding of the importance of this part of a student’s life, we decided to conduct a career counselling session for the students of 10th ,11th and 12th grade of St. Marks School, Vellore. It was a great experience for us and also an enlightening session for the students. We collaborated with a faculty of VIT University who conducted the session.

Mother's Day

Mother is not the one who has never struggled. She is the one who never gives up, despite of the struggles. In order to express our gratitude towards all the lovely Mothers, team Helphen India decided to give surprises to some special mothers nearby VIT. We went to 10 random slum houses and celebrated the day. We had cake cutting ceremony with beautiful mothers and their family members to make their day a memorable one.

Our Projects

Kinder

Project Kinder

Project Kinder is a project initiated by Helphen India, Vellore with the objective to teach English to the government school children. Through this project, we aim to develop English speaking skills among young minds and guide them to better opportunities in life. Currently, under the project the students of old PUMS school are taught by the Helphen India members regularly. Till date the school children are being taught basics of English grammar. We are planning to expand this project to other schools soon.

Kinder

Project Prayaas

Millions of children are deprived of their basic right, The Right to Education. Due to the financial and social status of the family the children are not even proper education and on the top of that may be indulged in child labour. Through "Project Prayaas" we are aiming to provide education to such unfortunate children. We go to different places and villages nearby vellore to convince their parents to send them to school. We have an ultimate goal that one day they will be able to read the morning newspaper and be updated with the current affairs.
