This project aims supporting underprivileged young girls living at the Janani home by providing for their needs that range from food, shelter to an excellent all-rounded education.
Many children in Pondicherry are not provided the resources they need to acquire a good education, live a safe life, and overcome the many obstacles that women in India have to face. The girl children are discriminated from their borthers and they are not provided equal opportunities. Additionally, many come from poor families that do not have the financial resources to take up their studies.
Janani home for girls, a program run by Prime Trust provides proper shelter, food and structured day for the young girls living there. Their stay is comfortable, clean and supervised by several adults. They attend evening school daily and various extracurricular activities such as art, dancing and singing. Prime Trust also provides the girls with access to quality medical care. This consistence and active work being done at the Janani home is sure to leave lasting and positive impact on the girls who call this place home.
The girls will be brought up in an environment that will equip them with the tools to lead a self-reliant life. We remove the children from neglectful and abusive homes, 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. The home provides them an opportunity to have vocaional training skills on tailoring ad embroidery. The children also get training on yoga and meditation.
