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 happiness.
We work directly in the local communities by providing aid and assistance.
Some of our recent programs include:
Covid Care: Providing free sanitary kits to most the vulnerable people, especially slum areas. Items distributed include N95 face masks, homeopathic medicines and hand sanitizer. Teaching free educational programs about how to build immunity through dietary and lifestyle interventions.
Educational Materials: IVPT provides mobile phones and laptops to students and teachers to help them attend classes that are held online due to Covid since March 2020. It also has a 20+ year history of providing free books, uniforms, and other learning materials to students from underpriviledged backgrounds attending our own school, Isa Viswa Vidyalayam, as well as other schools.
Kerala Flood Relief: More than 9 tonnes of flood relief materials were collected and distributed by IVPT during the Kerala Floods of 2018. Food, water, clothing, sanitary items, medicines, beds and educational materials were distributed. In the initial days of the floods, our volunteers were on the ground to provide hot meals, water and clothing to stranded houses and in relief camps.
