Working Towards a Brighter Future
DAIA at a Glance
Our Distinct Identity
DAIA knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but through the actions of our initiatives. Founded in 2002, our Non-Profit Organisation works to create healthy, thriving communities in low socio-economic areas of Tuticorin and Kovilpatti.
Ways We Help
Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences.
Educating Our Youth
Education is of utmost importance in a child's life. At DAIA, we're working with families who need an extra hand financially, so that children who come from humble backgrounds can experience the joy of schooling. Our after-school tuition centres also give students opportunities to create learning hubs, and form friendships too!
Empowering Our People
With access to the right resources, a whole host of pathways open up for those living in low socio-economic areas. DAIA's Empowerment Scheme strives to fulfill the potential inside every person hungry for an opportunity, by facilitating and offering ways for independent income generation.
Embracing Our Elders
At DAIA, we're dedicated to supporting our elderly, especially those who are living alone, or have limited means of income. We seek to love, care, and offer companionship to these citizens, and ensure they feel safe and heard in their communities.
Our medical camps were established to offer general check ups and basic healthcare to HIV/AIDS patients and senior citizens. This initiative is our longest running program, and remains one our most successful, too.
DAIA's awareness programs focus on the vitality of health and hygiene in low socio-economic areas. We offer valuable information for disease prevention in small communities, as well as important do's and don'ts of dealing with illness once it's present.
Operation Christmas Child
In partnership with Samaritan's Purse, DAIA conducts Operation Christmas Child every year. Gifts that are donated and wrapped by children all over the world, are given to children in struggling communities - homes that may not otherwise receive presents during the festive season.
