Sarojini Naidu Rural Welfare and Education Trust (The Trust) supports old people and develops employable skills in the youth, marginalised farm workers and students. The Trust received financial support from NABARD for some of its skill imparting activities.
Its activities include:
Old Age Home: Sri Annai Old Age Home houses 20 abandoned elderly from the region. The inmates are provided meals, shelter and medical support. Often the elderly suffer from depression and the Trust arranges for counselling sessions to support their mental well-being.
Training Centre in Tailoring: Teenage girls who have dropped out from school and young widows are offered a 3-month tailoring course run by 2 teachers to enable income generation.
Computer Training Centre: The Trust conducted a survey and identified school drop-outs who were encouraged to attend a short computer training course. Skills imparted at this centre enable the students to find better employment opportunities.
Training Centre for Farm Workers: The Trust groups the labourers into Self-Help Groups and provides training in manufacture of soap powder, soap oil and other small scale industry products.
