Dhanvarshan Charitable Trust is making an important contribution towards strengthening the identity and visibility of internal migrant workers and their families. Dhanvarshan is a Thanjavur based non-for-profit focused on community development and capacity building within the local migrant and low-socioeconomic community. Their mission is to ensure a sustainable living environment for migrant and poor families through the provision of nutrition, education, health, vocational and life skills training and counselling services.
The problems of poverty, illiteracy and homelessness seem to fall hardest on the children of migratory families, these families struggle to find basic child care and nutrition let alone guarantee an education for their children. In our experience, most parents tend to become helpless and hopeless while others settle for very mean options, some parents even turn violent and abusive; leaving these children in spaces they don’t feel safe.
Dhanvarshan believes in looking at these issues from the source. Not only do we provide children an enabling environment but through family counseling we build a safe space for them at home through Family strengthening and economic strengthening. It’s only when a child is happy, healthy and loved that we have achieved our goal.
Three meticulously designed verticals achieve this goal- Income Generation, Child Development, and Educational Sponsorship. Each of these programs is evidence based and closely monitored. We ensure that every child who calls Dhanvarshan home is reaching their full potential.
We aim to preserve family by meeting their needs through community programs. We aspire to develop these programs and reach the wider migrant communities of India, bringing awareness and advocacy to this population.
