Poverty Alleviation Program
Poverty Alleviation Program

Poverty Alleviation Programmes aim to reduce the rate of poverty in the country by providing proper access to food, monetary help, and basic essentials to households and families belonging to the below-the-poverty line.

According to the World Bank, Poverty is pronounced deprivation in well-being and comprises many dimensions. It includes low incomes and the inability to acquire the basic goods and services necessary for survival with dignity. Poverty also encompasses low levels of health and education, poor access to clean water and sanitation, inadequate physical security, lack of voice, and insufficient capacity and opportunity to better one’s life.

As per the Planning Commission of India, the level of poverty in a country can be estimated based on the consumer expenditure surveys that are conducted by the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) under the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation. This article will talk about the various Poverty Alleviation Programmes in India and the initiatives taken by the Government of India toward poverty alleviation.

As part of Prime Trust's mission to empower underprivileged women, today on 09/08/2022 two sewing machines were donated to two women. The women can do the stitching for their families and also work for their neighbours to earn money.

Children's Committee Meeting
Children's Committee Meeting

                                                                Children’s Committee Meeting

A group of children takes part in our committee meetings each term. One meeting is held per month with the aim of giving the children a voice and the opportunity to give feedback on their nursery experience and initiate change where appropriate. Children are more motivated to learn when the environment, activities, and resources interest them: involving the children in the decisions we make ensures that we are ‘in-tune’ with them.

The children are invited to contribute their ideas on the items set out in the agenda in a meeting held in the office, around a table with nibbles and refreshments. We ask families to take a little time to talk to their children about nursery and write any comments on the agenda points provided as well as make suggestions for other agenda topics to be discussed at the meeting. It goes without saying that we are happy to talk about anything that interests/worries/excites the children. The overarching aim is to improve our setting for your children.

Today, on 25th August 2022, the meeting was organized by Mrs. Mary Slessor, Program Manager. The children had a chance to come out with their views.

                                             Setting up of a production unit at a Tribal village

With the support of GlobalGiving, we are happy to share that we have started our production unit at a tribal village, Varagapet, Villupuram District, Tamil Nadu. We plan to make bags of all kinds and uniforms.

Prime Trust is planning to adopt this village and initiate programs such as Evening School, Awareness Generation, Health programs, etc.,

We formed a women group who will be trained to make the products. They will also be given a microloan to buy the raw materials required and to meet immediate expenses.

We are now sourcing job work from companies. We hope that the women will be paid a decent wage and it will improve the economic status of their families.
