Project Hope also took on the reconstruction of the village of Pattincheri in Karaikal. This project included the construction of 350 houses, a school, community center, vocational training center, computer center, medical care center and more.
On the 2nd of April, a team of twenty Rotarians from the USA and UK, led by Rotary Governor Elias Thomas III, joined us in Karaikkal (as they had come to do hands on labor for the orphanage construction in Cuddalore). They were so touched by the plight of the people and also so impressed by the design of the new model village, that they have offered to sponsor at least 32 homes from their side!
This project was also made possible by the assistance of generous donors including Shri L.N. Mittalji from London, UK.
