Shelter of Hope: Empowering the Homeless


Let us help those living in the shadows of society in Pondicherry. We aim to establish a centre for the homeless and offer them services to improve their quality of life. Our project 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.

The urban poor and homeless individuals of Pondicherry suffer many challenges. The photo above shows children, sitting in what is their home. Entire families raise their young and live off the scarps they get from the streets. Though there is some government support available, these individuals struggle to find access to these limited resources. Their lack of financial resources, education and home stability result in them living in cycles of poverty and homelessness.


In 2017, we aim to support 10 homeless women with children at our Homeless Centre. At our Centre we will provide them services 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 centre.
