Jeevana is focused on the empowerment and education for underprivileged women in Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu, South India and their children of all religions.
In our Tailoring Institute they learn in a ten month course sewing skills, and women are therefore able to reach independence. This sets women up to earn their own income to care for their families.
Thanks to our Kindergarten, the women have the chance to bring their children to a safe place during their school hours or during their working times.
The stories of hardship told by these women are tragic and many have experienced extreme deprivation of liberty.
But the stories of hope that have emerged since we have started our endeavour are motivating and inspiring.
