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.
Join the people of Kilvayattanan Kuppam in Tamil Nadu, South India, to learn more about life in an Indian Community. Work through the menu items or use the links below to find out more.
The goals of the Bishopston Kuppam Link, are to advance education and to relieve poverty and sickness in K.V.Kuppam. Just 25 pounds can send a child to school for a whole year! To make a donation online or to download a donation form, please click here.
The women of the village self help group helped with setting up the One Candle Project in 2004.
