About IVDP Founders

Mr. Kulandai Francis , Founder – President, IVDP

Late Mrs. Koselay Mary, Co-Founder, IVDP

 
There was little wealth in his family, so funding even the most basic education for Mr.Francis was a struggle. His parents, however, understood the importance of education, so sacrificed the small piece of land (considered to be the family’s only property) to enable him to graduate from Annamalai University. He continued to educate himself in order to advance the charity, completed a Social Development Course at Coady International Institute, Canada, and a Rural Management Course in the Philippines.

As Mr.Francis, personally experienced early age poverty, he started IVDP to help the poor and needy. This early impact of his parents’ immense sacrifice stimulated him to dedicate his life towards helping the poor.
