About Us

PUNYAM is a US-based, secular, volunteer-run non-profit organization working to ensure food, education and economic support for the less fortunate. Our mission is to empower underprivileged youth and women through relevant education and innovative healthcare to positively transform their lives and the lives around them.

Let us rise against hunger and make the world a better place!




  • Hunger – We are on a mission to make Kerala a hunger-free state. “No one, nowhere at any time should go hungry.”


  • Education – We sponsor childrens’ education and provide school supplies to the less fortunate.


  • Women/girls empowerment   To all the women/little girls: never doubt your value. You are invaluable, powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams. We do cancer awareness programs in schools, provide supplies, and teach rural villagers about the importance of personal health care, hygiene, and illness prevention.
