Support for the Homeless
The urban poor and homeless of Pondicherry suffer many challenges; systematic disparities based on caste and gender, lack of governmental services, lack of job and educational opportunities, urbanization and migration. These all contribute to an environment whereby individuals can become trapped in a cycle of poverty.
Prime Trust has supported 10 homeless families through our Homeless Centre and Outreach Programs. At our centre we provide them with services such as counseling, domestic violence protection, de-addiction and rehabilitation support. We also arrange access to vocational training and microcredit opportunities, helping them to achieve financial stability. Children are also provided with access to a quality education and attendance to our free Evening Tuition classes.
Long Term Goal
To empower and support the homeless, enabling them to reintegrate into society without having to live on the streets.
