The Dindigal area has a literacy rate of 31%, and most of the people are agriculturist or coolie workers. This project plans to provide supplementary education for rural hill area children in 10 villages of Natham. The 10 villages were selected by a BaseLine survey conducted. The objective of this project is to reduce drop out rates in this area and provide at least primary education for these children.

The project aims to benefit 261 children. Since there is no one who can guide these children there is definitely a crucial need for this project.

The project component that deals with supplementary education for children, is located in Natham block, Dindugal District of TamilNadu, and is currently being funded by Asha Stars through Asha-CO.

The SAADOW project started as a vocational training project for women. Now it has various components like Women’s welfare development, street center rehabilitation and supplementary education for children.
