Friends of India
 

Ms. Pamela Walsh OBE celebrated 25th Anniversary of her English Language school in Geneva. Instead of bringing flowers and chocolates, she asked her guests to contribute money to support a Computer Lab for poor children at Vellore, India. Friends started giving money as they were motivated to help the poor in need! This inspired her to start Friends of India (FOI) and register it in Switzerland in 1999. Dr. Priscilla Nirmalakumari, Founder of SUEB, who was working in Geneva at that time, was privileged to serve on FOI Board till she left Geneva 2008..
 
From its inception till date, FOI has supported SUEB in Women Empowerment and Educational Programmes.  Play Equipment, Educational Aids and Toilets were built for the Village Schools. We were able to form Self Help Groups, nurture them and give Development Education, Vocational and Entrepreneur Skills Training. They also assisted us in building Community College buildings at Medavakkam and Chennai.
In 2014, in collaboration with Lions Club, Geneva, FOI supported SUEB in offering Advanced Skill Development and Business Development Training to help women to improve their individual and group businesses. (More: see case studies)
