Association for Non- Traditional Employment for Women (a non-profit welfare society functioning in 3362/A2 AE Block 8th Street, Anna Nagar) has, in the course of the last 9 years, trained 2278 girls from poor families in various vocations to acquire economic self sufficiency.
Apart from our regular self awareness classes for our girls, Staff from PCVC (Crime Prevention & Victim Care) conducted classes on family violence and how to overcome it.
For the last 16 months, Tamilnadu Foundation is supporting our girls by way of stipends. To establish a sense of commitment and accountability, our students are encouraged to "sponsor" another girl in the following batch. On getting well paying jobs, the girls return a small amount to the Tamilnadu Foundation and thus keep the cycle going. Being the first of its kind, the Tamilnadu Foundation has termed it The ANEW Module . We are proud of our girls for setting this trend.
