Vallakottai in Kanchipuram district has over 2,500 residents and HMIF, have invested over Rs. 80lakh on various developmental activities since November 2015. With revamping and upgrading the existing facilities being the focus, HMIF trained residents in skills such as driving, EDP, embroidery and tailoring, catering, papad making, dairy farming etc.,  and took up  community activities like village main pond rejuvenation, building sanitation complex, etc. In addition, the villagers were provided complete assistance to set up commercially viable projects in dairy farming, catering service and papad making, making 40 families economically independent. Various camps were also held to promote health & hygiene related practices to school children and the community impacting over 1000 individuals.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. YK Koo said that “We do not believe in charity, we are focused on facilitating change. The Dream village project has been designed on the pillars of sustenance and empowerment and I am really happy to see the transformation of both the amenities and its residents. Our skill training programs have given hope of economic independence to the community. There is a marked change in their confidence levels, which I hope only grows.  We have rolled out plans of developing more such villages in the immediate future”. HMIF’s first Dream Village project in Mevaloorkuppam, also in Kancheepuram district, was successfully completed with a total investment of Rs.95 Lakhs. Apart from sanitation and upgradation of village facilities, especially schools, the villagers here were trained in income generating projects like pickle and candle making, tailoring, driving etc.  This aside, HMIF has upgraded sanitation and civic facilities in over 64 villages in the Kancheepuram - Sriperumbudur block.
