Society in Kottayam

Kottayam is a multi-layered society. It has a good number of Hindu and Muslim population but the Syrian-Christian Society predominates over all the facets of its general atmosphere. The greatest asset of the Kottayam society is its religious tolerance and coexistence without any untoward boundaries of religion. In fact, Kottayam had always been at the forefront of all the liberal movements that started in Kerala. That is why even today the society encourages only liberal views and a tolerant general behaviour. It is heartening to see that the shrines and temples of all the religious communities coexist close to each other with reverence to all and enmity with none.

Society in Kottayam

Due to the presence of the under-current of religiosity, there is a large number of charitable organizations serving the needs of the weaker and downtrodden people in their midst. These organizations run programmes for children, manage orphanages and work for the old and poor people.

Prison Fellowship India

This is a non-profit organization. It is working towards the care of children whose parents are in prison for some crime. The greatest contribution of the society is the recognition of the rights of a child as an individual. If the parents have been lost to crime, the child does not need to become a collateral damage. The precious children project is to improve the future of the children. It runs a home for such deprived and loveless children. It is as per the law of the land that criminally incarcerated mothers are allowed to keep their children with them till they reach 5 years of age. This is criminal neglect by the state in its duty towards those children who have to remain in jail for no fault of theirs. The prison fellowship India looks after such children. Its Kottayam address is given below.

The Faith Mission India

It is the story of one man giving back to a society that was very kind to him in his young age. The mission was founded in 1999 by an ex-orphan Mr. Girish. One day he heard about a school kid who had committed suicide due to poverty. Being raised in an orphanage, he was able to empathize with him. He decided to begin helping the needy and founded the mission.
