"Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment" - Maria Montessori

'No child in India should remain malnourished and be deprived of education and primary health. Let India be a child malnourished free nation' is the vision of Vedanta Group Chairman, Mr. Anil Agarwal. In line with this vision, Khushi Child Care Centers were established in different states of India by the Vedanta Group and in Thoothukudi, the project is running in 11 Villages benefitting 343 children with the objective to promote holistic development of children between 3 and 6 years of age to eliminate malnutrition and anemia among children.

Child Friendly Village

Sterlite Copper promotes awareness on Mother and child care through project called 'Child Friendly Village'. The Project ensures birth registration and that all school age children are in school and no child is involved in Child Labor. To make this happen, the 'First Birthday' of every child is celebrated in the project villages, irrespective of caste, creed and religion. Sterlite sponsors every child's birthday by cutting cake, gifting dress, toy and a tree sapling to ensure that every child gets its birth certificate and goes to school at the right age. Sterlite improved home based care which is most effective way to save children's lives.

"There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women"

Recognizing the need to empower women to contribute to socio- economic development of the country, "Sakhi" programme is taken up nationwide to build women through Self-Help Groups, increase supplementary income of their families, offer training to upgrade the skills of women for viable economic activities, create market linkages for economic activities of women SHGs and act as catalyst in linking resources between Government and Banks for their upliftment. 170 Self Help Groups with 21000 women in Thoothukudi are benefitted through this programme. Depending on the group's interest, the income generation programs are identified and they are trained in livelihood skills like Aloe Vera Juice Making, Papadam Making, Tailoring, Beautician, Flour Sales, Sari Chamikki Works, Ornaments Making, Textile Sales, Floor Cleaner Making, Glass Paintings, Candle Making, etc. Sterlite also helps these people to showcase their products in various events.

Vegetable seed kits containing six types of hybrid seeds were distributed to 6000 families covering 20 villages.
