other Teresa Charitable Trust (MTCT) and its execution wing Mother Teresa Forum (MTF) has emerged as one of the most effective poverty alleviation organization in the country. Starting with relief and rehabilitation role, we have vastly expanded our programs and proved to bring effective changes in the society. We are mostly involved in design and implementation of direct action oriented projects at the grassroot level, often combined with research, training and other components. Our target populations are generally the poor and the downtrodden.
To achieve a unified and ultimate goal in poverty alleviation and human resource development, an ideal sacrifice and service is needed in this fragile situation.
Awareness and Implementation of Govt. Programs for Rural Development.
We work in coordination with the state and Central governments for the protection and promotion of the rural public thereby developing the community as a whole.
An Entrepreneurship Development Program (45 days free training) on food processing sponsored by Ministry of Food Processing Industries, Govt. of India was conducted at Dharmapuri , Krishnakiri, Chennai Madurai and Kancheepuram in Tamil Nadu.
We reached around 250 young people (Male/Female) in the region and all our beneficiaries were unemployed youth.
We work on the need for basic health care in villages – housing primary health clinics, safe drinking water, latrine facilities etc. Knowledge on basic health and hygiene are taught for women and adolesant girls.
