Janani Home: Help underprivileged girls in India

Summary

This project aims to support underprivileged children by providing education, safe place to stay, health care and all-round development.

Many girls in Pondicherry and neighboring districts of Tamil Nadu are not provided resources they need to acquire a good education live a safe life and overcome obstacles that women in India have to face. The girl children are not given an equal opportunity to have education and healthy food.

 

Solution

We, at Janani Home provide safe place to stay, healthy food and structured days for the children. The children will have opportunities to have extracurricular activities such as dance, music, tailoring and embroidery etc., In addition to that they will have a doctor’s visit every month to take care of their health. Regular counseling session will be offered to the children to come out of their stress.

 

Long-Term Impact

The girls will be brought up in an healthy 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.

 

Updates

With the help of our volunteers, the children are getting computer classes. One day program was organized for the children to visit few of the historical places, temples and churches in south India. The children had the opportunity to celebrate Hindu and Christian festivals.

Homeless Project, Puducherry

Summary Prime Trust is trying to help those living in the shadows of society in Pondicherry. Our long term goal to establish a shelter home for the homeless and to provide them services to improve their quality of life. This home will provide empowerment, counselling, de-addiction and vocational training to help these individuals transition from a life of poverty to integrated members of our society. Challenge The challenges for this community are that they raise their children on the streets and their income is picking up rags in the trash bins. The male members are addict to alcohol, unable to raise their wards on par with other members of the society. The children do not get education and follow their parents. Their lack of financial resources, education and home stability result in them living in cycles of poverty and homelessness. Solution Since, the inception of this project in 2017, we are aiming to support 10 homeless women with children at our Homeless Centre. The women will get supports such as counselling, domestic violence protection, de-addiction and rehabilitation support. We will also arrange access to vocational training and micro-credit opportunities to help them achieve financial stability. Children will be provided proper education and access to any of the evening schools of Prime Trust. Long-Term Impact To empower and support these individuals reintegrate into society without having to live on the streets. Updates Prime Trust with its team supports the individuals by providing awareness education on Saturdays provides counseling, support the children with school supplies. The children are motivated to attend evening remedial classes at our center. Updates Miss. Asha Autur, a volunteer from the Netherlands who was the key person to initiate this project visited and interacted with the community few weeks ago. The children were given stationary and women are motivated to attend our tailoring classes. Additional Documentation This project has provided additional documentation in a DOCX file (projdoc.docx).

Children's Parliament Program

Summary

Prime Trust organizes Children’s Parliament Program to empower children in the slums and for the children in our Remedial Schools and the children of our women from Self Help Groups. These parliaments are designed for children between the age of 9 and 17 and encourage them to engage in local, national and international democratic processes. Essentially these children are discussing issues that directly affecting their lives. Through these parliaments we believe that every child should be able to express themselves openly and without fear.

Challenge

It is clear that the children in the slums do not have good access to quality education as their parents are unable to provide them. The children living in vulnerable condition are not raised well and they do not know their rights. The children are forced to discontinue their studies and sent for employment to support their families thereby losing their opportunity. The children pick up bad habits at a very young age

Solution

Through this program we aim to provide an opportunity to acquire leadership qualities, personality development. The children are taught about their rights and they are getting knowledge on the prevailing political system. It is an initiative to make good future citizens.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact of this program would be to create a potential society who will be assets of our nation.

Updates

Monthly meeting for the children were conducted through our Project Manager. General medical check-up thourgh a medical college was conducted on 10th November 2018 for all the children of our Parliament
