What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
After the Tsunami the fish catch was reduced and educated women from fishing villages need alternative sources of income generation. This project will address long term sustainable solutions through skill training- entrepreneurship, seaweed cultivation, nursery raising, and soap making for 200 women to strengthen their livelihood sources. We provide life skill, sexuality and vocational training for 300 adolescent girls in 11 fishing villages of Tamilnadu, India.

The project will provide alternative livelihoods skills training for 200 women to improve their incomes. We also provide life skill, sexuality and vocational training for 300 adolescent girls to improve their education and quality of life.
