In 2017 VM Tarm gave financial support to a local Indian education centre in the state of Tamil Nadu.
The centre Women Workers Training Center aims through schooling and training to help girls and young women be prepared to cope with adulthood.
The centre also has a farm, where new farming methods are trialled and the surrounding villages are trained in agriculture.
In the villages there is also training in health issues, children’s rights and the start-up of local financing groups.
Current projects supported by VM Tarm:
- Training of trainers in reproductive health, such as contraception, family planning and women’s rights.
- Eye tests, glasses and eye surgery.
- Installation of solar panels to save electricity costs.
- Drilling of a new well and installation of a new drinking water tank.
Emergency humanitarian aid
When people around the world are impacted by wars and disasters, the foundation of their lives is ripped out from under them – and perspective on life can almost disappear into unpredictable chaos.
Once again this year, VM Tarm is supporting people who are experiencing such difficulties. The support is channelled through DanChurchAid which works largely through local partners. It provides responsible, timely, coordinated and effective emergency response in both acute and long-term crises – always targeting the needs and priorities of the affected populations.
Specifically, the work encompasses everything from the development of local disaster preparedness to the distribution of cash for people affected by disasters – including trauma treatment, food delivery, conflict mediation, shelter and water and sanitation. And in the longer term, education and income-generating activities, which can provide the basis for a new and better future.
