Sebastian Indian Social Projects (S.I.S.P.) is a non-profit organization working in the coastal region of Thiruvananthapuram, the capitial of India's south-western state of Kerala.

S.I.S.P. was founded by two Belgians, Paul Van Gelder and Werner Fynaerts in 1996. They strive to accelerate social and economic change in a rural context by collaborating with local community members to build a better society where all people have easy access to education, health care, and employment opportunities.

S.I.S.P. has an explicit commitment to remain disassociated from any religious activity and to work both for and all side the poorest among all communities. The staff members and beneficiaries of S.I.S.P. belong to all the different communities in the area.

We are so excited to have SISP on board as our first Global Partner in India as part of our Marine Conservation Masterplan for the region.

 

The Kovalam Surf Club is located in Kovalam, Kerala, India and was founded in 2005 as a part of the bigger NGO SISP. SISP is active in the area since 1996 and tries to improve the harsh living conditions of the poorest by offering them free education, medical care, food support, old age care, micro credit unions, literacy classes, training and work in handicraft units.

he idea behind the Kovalam Surf Club was to get the children of SISP off the streets outside of the school hours and to act as an extra motivation to keep these kids going to school on a regular basis. The main rule to participate in the surf classes is:  "No school - No surfing!"

We are so honoured to be partnering with Kovalam Surf Club and SISP to address the incredible environmental issues facing the ocean and the local community in the region as part of our Marine Conservation Masterplan.
