Tackling Poverty and Empowering Communities
The Trust supports initiatives to develop, train and empower women’s groups in the agricultural villages. This work is essential to support the children and families.
Ananda Ashram has a regular programme to provide employment and support to agricultural workers and to help landless agricultural workers lease land in their own name so that they can gain dignity and the chance to improve the income for their families.
The Trust also helps fund the construction of new houses built of brick and cement, with tile roofs to replace the mud wall and thatched cottages in the villages when they become derelict.
