Students are starting school in July and need your help! 


Please consider giving a donation to the Friends of Kalangarai to support the children of the widows who are trying to get an education. The children and young adults would not be able to attend school without our help. Your contribution can be sent to the following address: 


Friends of Kalangarai, Inc

P.O. Box 5366,

Louisville, KY 40255


*Friends of Kalangarai is a 501(c)3 charitable organization



St. Joseph’s College was established by Kalangarai after the Indian Ocean Tsunami and offers three Vocational Diploma Courses in Electrician, Refrigeration and Air-conditioning, Desk-top Publishing, and General Duty Assistant.

Thank you for your support!

With our two fund-raising campaigns in 2017 (Mother’s Day and End-of-the-Year Appeal), Friends of Kalangarai enabled 69 children to attend school. We raised $2,388 (161,235 INR) which provided scholarships ranging from $15 (1000 INR) to $75 (5000 INR).  Ten students received scholarships to attend St. Joseph’s Community College, 3 students received scholarships to nursing school, and 56 students received scholarships to various colleges (vocational diploma, bachelors’ degrees, or masters of engineering) and secondary schools (10-12 grades).
