41 tribal families from Kulathur estate at Muthukadu in Malabar region now own houses of their own. Thanks to the laborers of Uralungal, without whom the dreams of those families would have been unfulfilled.
When Kozhikode district collector proposed the project as part of tribal rehabilitation, the amount allocated for each family was a paltry Rs 75,000. For a less committed organization, that was reason enough to retract from a bigger cause. Although we were aware of the financial burden, we had decided to move ahead. Profit was not the only motive, as we wanted to send a message on the importance of contract labour and social commitment. Santhigram built on the shores of Vellayil near Kozhikode using tsunami rehabilitation fund stood testimony to our dedication. ULCCS began its journey by fighting the evils of unemployment. Our unity helped us to grow. Now we feel it’s our duty to pay back. We invariably apportion a percentage of our profits for charity. A common justice funds are maintained to meet educational commitments or serving common social needs. We always co-operate with social welfare programs of the government and are always at the forefront to support ailing patients. Through Vagbhatananda Edu Project, UL Foundation strives for Social development through education.
