The Vilpatti Village Project (VVP) operates in a remote village at a height of 2000 metres in the Palani Hills, Tamil Nadu. The project focuses on the most marginalised sections of the community, in particular impoverished women and children, designing its programmes to meet their practical needs.

ICT India has worked with VVP, at project level, to build on VVP's own capacity to provide the practical tools for self-reliance: e.g., education for local children, a crèche, literacy and numeracy programmes and training in tailoring and carpentry. A VVP health clinic has improved upon its strategy to immunise all children and provide for the primary health needs of this community vulnerable to rapidly changing temperatures in the Palani Hills.

ICT India also empowers people on an individual level: young impoverished parents are helped to help themselves through supported income-generation schemes at VVP, enabling a number of local women to become financially independent via the production of candles and cards for the local market. .

ICT continues to raise funds for the poorest and most vulnerable children in VVP both through one off grants and through child sponsorships and ICT is exploring new ways to expand this support.
