The International Center for Study and Development has 70 members, including Christians, Hindus, Muslims, and Dalits. Their dream is to "uplift the downtrodden and diseased masses of Kerala."
Past projects include starting a hospital for addiction treatment and rehabilitation, founding a home for the elderly, and having family counseling centers. They run 32 childcare homes in different regions of Kerala.
In honor of the URI 10th anniversary, the ICSD is planning to run a Help Line for 24 hours a day to provide counseling for the needy.
