Target Communities

Our target communities are fisher folk and palmyrah tappers of Gulf of Mannar region. Both fishing and palmyrah tapping are seasonal activities. It is vulnerable to climate change. Both the communities are exploited by money lenders and depending on out siders for their immediate financial resources. The general awareness on education, health is very poor. The region is deprived of economic development, which is witnessed by other side of the state. The  in all our working villages. poor infrastructure, difficult train, semi arid climate, combined with social, political and economic backwardness forced the people to migrate to other part of the state. The migration is deprived the children to access to education, safe shelter, basic health and nutrition.  The women and children are worse victim of the region. The lack of alternative livelihood opportunities forced women and children for exploitation. Thus the people of the region are vulnerable, most exploited and neglected.
