Charitable Trust Kerala
When Kathy Miller decided to travel to Southern India with Projects Abroad in 1999, little did she realise how much it would change her life. Five years on, Kathyâ€™s charity, The Neem Tree Trust has gone from strength to strength.
After spending a month teaching near Madurai, Kathy was given the opportunity to spend time at The Society for the Care of the Handicapped where she was touched by the boys and their mutual respect and love for each other despite their situation. Most of the boys have suffered from polio and all come from very poor family backgrounds so Kathy decided to set up The Neem Tree Trust to help with the boysâ€™ education and to generally help to relieve child poverty in the Tirunelveli area.
On her return, Kathy, her husband Ken and the two other trustees â€“ John Hoskins and Patricia Kinzett worked hard to achieve charitable status for The Neem Tree Trust and were granted this in November 2003. In the last year alone they have raised Â£6,485 from starting a lottery club, Â£5,266 from sales of goods made by the boys themselves and over Â£800 from friend, Graham Dove who ran the Bath Half-Marathon in aid of the trust.
Kathy visits the boysâ€™ home at least once a year to meet up with the boys, to donate money and collect their crafts to sell back in the UK. This year she presented Dr Karuna Chelliah who runs the home with a cheque worth Â£8000 to pay for boysâ€™ corrective surgery, vocational training equipment, the creation of a sensory garden for the boys to play in and meet their families, a special oven to make body braces for the severely disabled boys and an educational trip to Kerala for the boys amongst other things.
The Neem Tree Trust has been so successful that Kathy and the trustees have decided to expand their support to St Lukeâ€™s Leprosy Hospital at Peikulam, by selling the ladiesâ€™ colourful woven baskets with all profits going back to the hospital.
If youâ€™d like to find out more about The Neem Tree Trust, buy products made by the boys, greetings cards designed by them or donate to this good cause then please visit the web-site at www.neemtreetrust.org.uk.

Fundraising Ideas For Non Profits
Question: Im really wanting to start up a non profit fundraising type thing….?
My whole family is against the fact i even want to do this and i dont get why. I heard about these women who started collecting donated prom dresses for unfortunate girls who just cant afford them. I want to start that in my town, but im not sure quite how, I have a few basic ideas, but im getting no help from family since they think im crazy and im young and never have attemted anything like this b4, any unique ideas would be just great….Thanks so much…
i have no idea what you mean by that.. Write my check? shut up.
i dont live in a very big town, and i just planned on keeping it small, we have an entire master double room type thing upstairs going to no use, i figured i could keep stuff there. Its not like im going to have a million people or anything. I would also travel to bring the right sizes to the girls who need them.
thats a fantastic idea- there are not enough people trying to do good. If you start informally, theres not much to do. If it grew, you would need to comply with not-forprofit regs from your state and the irs. I would try to find a friend who is interested as its good to have someone to talk to and go thru problems together, Think about visiting other organizations in your area and discussing your plans with them. They may have suggestions or at leat encouragement.
