Mrs. Annamma, head teacher of Ampalavanar Memorial Tailoring and Embroidery School runs classes at Eluru on regular basis for women. Awareness programmes for eradication of illiteracy and child labour are being conducted regularly throughout the diocese.
We are badly in need of a four wheeler (car or jeep) for the transportation of Social workers and animators to go around the rural habitations as there are no proper transportation facilities.

The ICM has launched a project at Komati Lanka Lakes to provide 15 fisherman and their families with a boat and nets. This enable them to reap the reward of their fishing without having to pay rent for boats. The families will be uplifted and children better fed and educated.
To date, USD2300 has been raised form Canada for this project. If more funds are available, we will assist more families witht he boats.
