Tharavadu

Tharavadu : a home for homeless people – Punyam’s dream project!

Tharavadu can be simply defined as a place for the homeless in the heart of Alleppey, Kerala. You may believe this to resemble an elderly, nursing home or an orphanage. Quite the contrary, place where youth or adults can get off the streets and find a temporary, safe haven. A heritage home where people of all ages can live and relax among the calming nature and cooling river banks.

As of 30th June 2018, Punyam wrapped up its contributions and affiliations to the Tharavadu Project (working to create a better environment for all). Punyam is no longer taking any donations for Tharavadu due to a successful mission accomplished.
