The regional diet consists of bananas, chicken, fish, rice and potatoes. Common health problems in this area include skin diseases, malnutrition, fevers, coughs, malaria and waterborne diseases. Most adults in Palayamkottai work as laborers and earn the equivalent of $90 per month. This community needs potable water, improved sanitation and vocational training.

The center staff will also provide meetings and skills training for the parents or guardians of Vadivookarasi.
India, the world's largest democracy, has a tropical climate in the south and a more temperate climate in the north. The cool season is from November to March; the dry, hot season is from March to June; and the weather is hot and rainy the rest of the year.

In southern India, languages spoken are Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. In this region Christianity dates back to the first century when St. Thomas the apostle landed in Kerala and established a church there. He was eventually martyred in Chennai, where Compassion's southern office is located.

India is home to one of the world's oldest urban civilizations, dating to about 3500 B.C. This civilization declined around 1500 B.C., and soon after came the Aryan invasion and the gradual establishment of Aryan rule. In 1192, Arabs invaded, bringing with them the Islamic faith. British influence came with trading companies in the 1600s. British rule over India was established in 1757 and lasted until 1947, when a peaceful independence movement, made famous by Mohandas Gandhi, achieved its goal. The country now has a federal republic, and Pratibha Patil was elected the first female president of India in 2007.

India's diverse economy encompasses traditional village farming, modern agriculture, handicrafts, a wide range of modern industries, and a multitude of services. The country has capitalized on its large numbers of well-educated people skilled in the English language to become a major exporter of software services and workers.
