1. Home for the Aged:
Rosary Trust is running a home for the aged for last 20 years. About 200 neglected aged have been sheltered and taken care of. Now there are 50 aged. All the aged are from the nearby rural villages. The home is run in the village style. They are given simple food as to avoid any stomach problems. Medicines are also provided. They are clothed as well. All are done with the help of little donations locally got. Now from July, 2007, Give India is supporting the home for the aged.
Background of Activity:
Many aged are abandoned. They come to our home for the aged. But we are not able to take them because of lack of donations. We need to build more halls and more fund to accommodate them. The rural situations are becoming bad to worse. There is no rain for the last 35 years due to global heat. The village farmers can not cultivate anymore. The families are growing poorer and poorer. Poverty is creeping into the area like earth worms.
The aged are more vulnerable to the poverty situations. They are made to work. They are not respected. They are not given food. Finally they are driven out. They can not go to the cities. If they go to the city, the homes there do not take them. Thus the rural aged persons are twice driven out. Rosary Trust is running a village home for the aged to take care of the rural neglected aged. This is a twice challenged problem.
2. Winter Clothings for Poor Aged
In the rural area the aged are not taken care of. They are poorly clothed. They do not have even a single sheet to cover themselves and have nothing to protect from cold in winter. So Rosary Trust is giving winter clothings which consist of a blanket, a monkey cap and sweater. So far 510 aged have been gifted with winter clothings.
3. Empowerment of Women
(i) Tailoring Center
A Tailoring Center is started this year to employ poor women tailors. This is to create job opportunities for the rural poor women. They are given training in tailoring and then given tailoring works. 25 women have been trained so far. They can earn more than a coolie woman laborer.
(ii) Sewing Machine to Poor Women
This project is started 10 years back to empower rural poor women. Through the help of Give India, 117 poor women have been given a sewing machine each. They have been given training in tailoring to stitch different clothes. Now they are happy that they can earn a living for themselves.
(iii) Cow to Poor Women
This project was started 10 years back to empower rural poor women. Through the help of Give India, 11 cows have been gifted to 11 poor women. Now they are happy that they can earn a living for themselves.
4. Education of Poor Students
This project was started 10 years back to help in the education of poor students. Through the support of Giveindia, 200 students have been helped so far. They are given school uniforms, books, notes, bags, fees, etc.
5. Free Medical Camp in Poor Villages
In the villages around the trust, many of the people are poor. They are hard workers but unable to save their earnings due to their vast medical expenses because, everyone has got some disease or other. The trust has planned to conduct free medical camp once a month in poor villages. With the sponsorship of Give India, 46 free medical camps have been conducted.
Diseases like headache, fever, cold, leg pain, knees pain, skin disease, ulcer, gastric problems, neck pain, asthma, urinary trouble, neurotic problems, stroke, sugar and pressure problems, and bodily wounds have been treated. All are tested for temperatures, pulses, pressures and sugars. Appropriate tablets like Paracetamol for fever and headache, diclofanec for pains, and sugar and pressure tablets have been given to the patients. Trips have been given for weaker patients. Apart from the camp the villagers also come to the trust office dispensary for free medicines. Now the villagers are happy and confident in their health. They work hard and save the money for their future life.
6. Free Tuition Centers
The dalit villages are poor and backward in the project area. Most of the village adults are illiterate. There is primary school in each village but the children soon get dropped saying they are not capable of studying. The parents accept it. The teachers do not persuade and educate them.
Rosary Trust made a study and found that children need good teachers and tutors. The trust started free evening tuition centers in 20 villages. The children are encouraged to come to the tuition by many ways. The children realize that they could study and get progress in life. Many of them are going to high school now.
7. Home For The Handicapped
Rosary Trust is running home for the handicapped at Tirunelveli Town. There are 50 handicapped persons sheltered. Most of them are blind. They are from 4 districts of Tirunelveli, Tuticorin, Virudhunagar and Kannyakumari. There are schools and hostels for the handicapped in these districts, but after their studies they are not settled properly due to lack of proper rehabilitations for them. This home is a boon for them.
As adults the blind and the handicapped could not run along in normal life in the society. Still they need some sort of support. This home for the handicapped is providing such support. Adult handicapped are sheltered and are given opportunities to work and earn. They are given food, clothes and medicines as they could not earn enough for themselves.
