Help underprivileged girls in India

Summary

Janani Home for Girls aims to support and transform the lives of underprivileged young girls by providing their needs that range from food, shelter to an excellent all-rounded education.

Challenge

In many parts of India, the birth of a girl child is not welcomed. Right from her arrival, she faces discrimination, humiliation, and oppression at every stage of life. When it comes to healthcare, education and growth opportunities, she is neglected because of her gender. Some manage to survive and foster new paths to follow. Most, however, surrender hopelessly to the sad fate assigned to them. In a country rife with gender inequalities and an underlying nature of patriarchy, girl children often find themselves at the short end of the stick. Discrimination against girls is rampant and due to the fear of abuse and exploitation, they are kept at home and not sent to school. Child marriage is yet another glaring issue due to which girls are forced to give up going to school at an early age.

Solution

Janani home, which is authorized by the Government of Puducherry, provides proper shelter, food and structured day for the young girls living there. We make their stay comfortable, provide clean and neat environment. Opportunities to get tuitions, extra-curricular activities such as dance and music, tailoring and embroidery, yoga are available. Guidance and Counseling, awareness generation program on child rights, health and hygiene are provided on a regular basis.

Long-Term Impact

The girls living at the Janani Home are living in an environment that will equip them with the tools to lead a self-reliant life. We remove the children from neglectful and abusive mindset and give them a chance to be surrounded by loving individuals. The nutritional, medical and educational care they receive will create a structured and safe life. The Janani Home also provides a safe place where they girls can be nurtured, as children, and become productive members of society, when they reach adulthood.

Empowering women through Micro Credit Program

Summary

Empower 100 women start or expand small businesses of their own by providing micro-credit loans or grants and also by providing training.

Challenge

From the history, it is very well understood that just by charity, the poverty can’t be eradicated. It could be achieved only through empowering women by making them self reliant. The women face societal ills such as low literacy rates, unemployment predatory lending and the resulting into `debt trap` restrict women from having expandable income.

Solution

This project aims to provide small grants or loans (free or low interest) to women pursuing small businesses of their own. The awarding of loans and grants will be based on established small businesses or clearly outlined new ideas. Prime Trust contacts banks and facilitate women groups to get credit. Prime Trust already has a fair trade store in Puducherry that sells products that are made by women from our self-help groups. Prime Trust takes initiatives to provide them employment opportunities so that they can find a job or they can earn independently.

Long-Term Impact

This project empowers women to become self-reliant and self-sustaining. It gives them the financial independence that they rightfully deserve. With our training on tailoring, embroidery, jewel making, door mat weaving, paper bag making, the women can have a decent income. Through their financial independence, they are equally respected in their families and get chances to take their own decision.

Updates

Recently, Prime Trust took initiatives in setting up the folloiwng training/income generation programs: Jewel making, paper bag making, embroidery work. 

Periodical training programs for Accounting were conducted. Through our resource person, an orientation program on how to run a successful business by applying simple logics was conducted.
