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.

Distribution of micro-loans to the members of SHGs in Puducherry
Formation of SHGs, providing micro loans, linkage to the banks, and offering vocational training skills are core activities of Prime trust. Prime Trust raises support through GlobalGiving to empower women in poverty through a micro-credit program.
Microcredit is a common form of microfinance that involves a minimal loan given to individuals to help them become self-employed or grow a small business. These borrowers tend to be low-income individuals, especially from less developed countries
The Founder Director, Mr S.M. Arasu, along with Mr Denish Kumar, Country Director, LACIM, France were present while disbursing cheques to the women who are willing to start their own business or to invest money with their existing business.
A sum of Rs. 20,000/- to each member was distributed. A small session was conducted on how to use the funds and make a successful business.
Prime Trust together with Vel dental clinic organized a free dental camp for the people at Rainbow Nagar and TV Nagar today. Regular dental visits are important because they help to keep our teeth and gums healthy. Dental check-ups prevent plaque, tartar, cavities, and tooth decay. Routine dental visits keep gum disease at bay.
The camp started at 10 am and ended at 1:30 pm. One of the doctors demonstrated the way of brushing our teeth. The individuals were given dental check-ups, the doctors gave the information regarding the precautions and the regular dental care to be taken, and those needing treatment (cleaning, scaling, etc.) were given the needed treatment in the mobile van. Some people were referred to the Vel dental clinic. About 65 people benefitted from the camp - children, women, and men. The participants were given free toothbrushes and toothpaste. The staff was given a free dental kit with toothpaste, mouthwash, toothbrush, gum gel, etc.
