IVPT provides aid and comfort to the suffering, and at the same time, conducts projects to resolve the source of suffering. The Isa Viswa Prajnana Trust envisions a world where every human being is capable of achieving total consciousness—in other words, total happiness.
We work directly in the local communities to provide aid and assistance.
Some of our recent programs include:
Kerala Flood Relief: As of April 2019, more than 9 tonnes of relief materials have been collected and distributed by IVPT to victims of the 2018 floods which devastated the State of Kerala. Volunteers were on the ground to provide hot meals, water and clothing during the floods. Later we provided materials like new beds to flood-stricken houses, and educational materials to damaged schools.
Slum Outreach: The Trust’s ’Mobile Knowledge Unit,’ initiated with the Government of India’s CRWC, is a project which serves disadvantaged housing colonies (slums) of Thiruvananthapuram by providing free healthcare, health tools, counselling, and skill development classes. Classes for children and adults include filmmaking, computer literacy, soap-making, and yoga.
Free Medical Camps provided integrated healthcare to low-income people, where Allopathic, Ayurvedic, homeopathic and all types of specialists provide check-ups and medicines free of cost.
Free Food, or ‘Annadhanam,’ is provided on a daily basis to members of our community.
“One House, One Fruit Tree” project is a grassroots campaign to encourage people to plant fruit trees on their property and to educate them about organic food and the role of trees in mitigating climate change.
March 2019: This project has now been taken up by the Govt. of Kerala, and will be initiated in Veli and Akkulam tourist villages.
Student Sponsorship - The Trust provides the education for free to all needy students of Isa Viswa Vidyalayam, including tuition, books, uniform and transportation.
Natural Disasters: IVPT collects and distributes a variety of forms of aid to victims of natural disasters such as the Chennai Floods, the Kollam Temple Fire, earthquakes, and landslides.
Several other innovative environmental, agriclutural and renewable energy projects are also conducted under the IVPT’s Global Energy Parliament.
