Expectations exceeded for South India project
Over one thousand men and women and their families in Tamil Nadu have had remarkable improvements to their lives, with increased incomes and savings, reduced household indebtedness, and regular school attendance for more of their children.
This project brought together 1158 Dalit (untouchable), Tribal (indigenous) and Narikuravar or Gypsy workers under five cooperatives and four microenterprises, supported by extensive occupational and business training courses.
These skills have given the impoverished workers the ability to manage and build their enterprises and put them firmly on the road to economic independence.
These achievements are due to your monthly Solidarity donations which allow us to plan long term projects; and which the Morgan Foundation has generously matched over the past three years.
Our full project report tells the personal stories of the men and women who have been involved in this project, accompanied by photos, and supported by evidence.
