Many girls 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. Young women are discriminated against, so they are not given the same type of educational opportunities as their male counterparts. Additionally, many come from poor families that do not have the financial resources to support them. Most are unaware of resources that could help them with their struggles.


Janani home 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.

Long-Term Impact

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.
