Rehabilitate 370 Prisoners in Trichy, India

Can you support us, please!

Dear Donors,

The trainings given to the inmates of the Special prison by us, have given them courage and confidence to face their future and the community once they get released. The trainings have also helped them keep themselves busy and engaged instead of idling away the time in prison and dwelling in the past/fearful thoughts.

Rani, who was selling liquor earlier and the trainee in our first batch is released a year ago. Once she returned back to her village she started stitching with a minimim investment of Rs.3000/-. Now she is earning Rs.150/- per day on an average. She is very happy now besides being a self-righteous person. All this is possible only because of the support of donors like you.

You made this happen and your continued support both financially and morally will help other women inmates who want to change like Rani. So kindly spread words about this project to your friends and relatives. For the last six months we have not received any donations for this initiative, which had made our initiative slog.

We require generous donors to support us continue working for this cause. The organisation has planned to give training on Kundan Jewellery production and Vermi-compost production to the inmates. Kundan Jewellery is the art of making jewels with gem stones. The women are fond of these jewellery as they are cheaper and it comes in vibrant colours that match their attire. Hence it is a profitable venture.

In the prison the raw material for producing vermi-compost is in abundance and is being wasted. Hence if vermi-compost production is taught to the inmates, they can use the compost for raising their kitchen garden.

The total amount required for giving a kundan jewellery making for a batch of 20 inmates will cost $920 and vermi compost production training to 20 will cost $520.

So dear donors, kindly continue supporting the project by donating and spreading words to your friends and relatives.

With regards
