Homeless Project, Puducherry

Summary

This project aims to help those living in the shadows of society in Pondicherry. The long term ambition is 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.

Challenge

The urban poor and homeless individuals of Pondicherry suffer with many challenges. The picture above shows children sitting on the street 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. Their inability to shower often and maintain good hygiene often adds to existing health issues. People who are homeless are often at risk of infectious diseases—like hepatitis A, B, and C, tuberculosis, and HIV/AIDS—due to compromised immune systems, poor nutrition and hygiene, and frequent overcrowding at shelters.

Solution

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. We try to find support for them through the government.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact would be that they will reintegrate into the society without having to live on the streets. Providing awareness generation on health and hygiene, alcoholism, HIV/AIDS will help them a lot.
