    In its underprivileged neighborhoods, Samatha finds many elderly citizens who need support and care.

  • Education Aid

    "The cost of educating a child today is immense. But the cost of not educating a child is incalculable."

    Several children give up education, as their families find it difficult to financially support the child. With the poor socio-economic conditions of the community, this is very common. The child then will be forced to do unskilled labor for petty earnings, which will not support the family for long. Then it continues as a vicious cycle for generations. Samatha understands this and started the Education Aid program for the underprivileged students in 1999, by supporting a couple of the most needy students.
    Currently the Education Aid program supports 5 students, taking care of all expenses of their education. And, we can proudly say, the results are exceptional.
  • Complete financial support to students
  • Learning assistance

    Computer Literacy Program

    "If we teach today's students as we taught yesterday's, we rob them of tomorrow."
                                                                                                                       -John Dewey

    The prospect of the cyber technology reaching to the lower layer of the society is rare, though the necessity of being aware of it grows rapidly. To help out Samatha envisioned and started a much needed Coastal Computer Literacy Program in 2012, in association with Micro objects Pvt.Ltd, Cochin, opening up an opportunity for the people of all ages. We anticipate it to be a complex, but worthy task. Awareness seminars are intended to break the ice for the community which otherwise diffident towards anything that is cyber.

    Family Congregate

    "The family is both the fundamental unit of society as well as the root of culture."                                                                                                                                       -Marianne E Neifert

    Samatha is essentially a family of families. We share together and grow together. The annual Family Congregate is a obligatory occasion where all the member families meet to share moments are have fun. The occasion is for everyone in every family, young and old alike.


    "The library is a temple of learning, and learning has liberated more people than all the wars of history."

    Considering the essential role Books and Literature play to lift up people's spirit, Samatha started a library for the public in 2011.
