Nambikkai - House of Hope plans to become a self-supporting (self-sustaining) ministry through purchasing and cultivating farmland. A spice farm was purchased in Idukki which produces cardamom, coffee, black pepper etc. The profit that the farm makes in the future can hopefully support the following projects. 1. Job opportunities for the unemployed 2. Education 3. Training 4. Micro-Finance 5. Development Assistance 6. Woman empowerment 7. Enable children to go to school 8. Literature and Knowledge
Nambikkai is a Self-supportive Project

Idukki District, Kerala, India
Our focus is mainly on the Dalits (Untouchables) and migrants who are an oppressed and ill-treated community in Idukki. Many of these people are working in the tea plantations or other spice estates. They work too hard and are paid less than 4 dollars a day. Dalits are considered to be the lowest class of people in Indian society. According to Hinduism, they are born to be enslaved by other castes. The word Dalit means broken and crushed. In Indian society they are treated like animals in some cases worse than animals. Many of these Dalit children have no access to education and many are trapped as bonded child labour. Due to unemployment in the neighbouring states, may people come to Idukki as migrants looking for jobs.
Nambikkai – House of Hope works mainly in the state of Kerala, in the region of Idukki in South India. Idukki is known as one of the most backward and poor districts in Kerala. Idukki is also known for its natural beauty and plantations of tea, coffee and cardamom etc.
