    We are a charity running in Varkala, Kerala with the mission to feed the needy and underprivileged on the streets and in the hospitals. Our work began in 2002 and we achieved charitable status in the spring 2015. Twice a day, in the morning and again in the afternoon, we collect around 216 food parcels prepared at nearby train station and distribute them throughout the local area.

    You will be involved in Karmic Yoga - the simple act of helping others, altruism. In making such a direct impact on the lives of the less fortunate and to witness a shift in their well-being, you will hopefully find a sense of peace in yourself, allowing you to forget your own problems in the focus on the needs of others.

    We provide free accommodation in a vibrant guesthouse in one of the most blissful parts of Kerala, seconds from the beach. Varkala is known for its many idyllic, tropical beaches, luscious flora, diverse fauna, mouthwatering local cuisine and Kathakali Theatre and ancient temples.
