Building lives creating positive influences delivering smiles
One of the major impacts or landmark achievements of the project has been the effective prevention of the children becoming child laborers. The covid pandemic rendered a substantial number of persons belonging to the region have lost their livelihood. The unorganized sections such as daily wagers, small vendors, inter district migrant laborers etc form the majority of the population of the region.Financial Inclusion through facilitation of credit linking with bank and other financial Institutions.
The loss of livelihood is further worsened by the children of these communities missing the free noon meals they used to have when the schools were functioning prior to Corona pandemic period. These causes have led to children being sent for work in many families. Nutritional food kit being given by Give India to the children has gone a long way in preventing this.
The villages falling under the project belong to the taluks of Musiri, Thuraiyur, Lalgudi TPet and Srirangam and Keeranur of Pudukottai districts of Tamil Nadu.
As many as 1500 children belonging to the villages of the project area have been the direct beneficiaries receiving the monthly food kit sponsored by Give India. Similarly, well over 6000 persons being the family members of these direct beneficiaries are the indirect beneficiaries of the project.
Similarly, the plight of the children living with HIV and the children of persons living with HIV in this Covid pandemic times got worsened in our region. The help they were receiving have got stopped due to total focus help towards Covid interventions. For want of covid protection protocols the peer meeting etc. which used to be conducted during pre-covid days for the persons living with HIV etc. too had to be called off.
Under such pathetic circumstances these children were protected by the distribution of the nutritional food kits and their CD4 count could be maintained properly.
