Vallakottai and Mevaloorkuppam were two other villages in Kancheepuram district, which had undergone similar transformation in 2015 and 2016, respectively. Speaking on the occasion, Mr. YK Koo said that “The Dream Village Project has been designed on the pillars of sustenance and empowerment. I believe that those living in villages are as capable of making a difference to the society as their urban counterparts, provided they are given the right infrastructure and support. Hence we have focused on making these villages self-reliant. The villages of Vallakottai and Mevaloorkuppam are a proof that self-reliance spurs further development and growth.” Madhuramangalam is a 418 family strong village. The South-Korean automaker also planted 200+ trees in the village to green it, while villagers were taught to harvest rain water.

Moreover, dairy farming, quail & country chicken rearing and Ari embroidery were taught to different groups as part of skill training and social enterprise. Nearly 84 families are expected to benefit from these initiatives. Hyundai had invested nearly 2 Crore Rupees to upgrade Vallakottai and Mevaloorkuppam. The pickle making unit started in Mevaloorkuppam is successfully supplying pickles to around 10 factories nearby to give the 14-member SHG a monthly income of Rs. 4,500. The catering group, started for 15 women in Vallakottai, has also received an overwhelming response with several bookings helping them earn a monthly income of around Rs. 7,500 each. This aside, the company has upgraded sanitation, health, hygiene, education and civic facilities in over 64 villages in the Kancheepuram - Sriperumbudur block.
