In March 2015 the Bishopston Kuppam Link (BKL) merged with Friends of Vellore, a larger charity working in the K V Kuppam area. We are now proud to be working alongside the Vellore Rural Community Trust (VRCT) under the umbrella of Friends of Vellore.

These web pages were set up by Pam Morris to introduce people to the Indian village of Kilvayattanan Kuppam (known as K V Kuppam) and to the projects supported through the Bishopston Kuppam Link (BKL): the One Candle Project, the Pachaikili Play Centre and the Pachaikili Centre for the Elderly.
