Disaster preparedness training going on among the slum dwellers of Teynampet locality in Chennai city. SPPD has been organizing these trainings in the areas that are vulnerable to disaster. The community members are imparted the vital elements of training like protecting themselves from the Floods, fire accidents, giving first aid to the victims, helping people living with disabilities and the senior citizens, etc.With the north east monsoon rains having set in already, the poor communities belonging to the low lying localities here are very eager and keen in taking part in these trainings.


SPPD has been actively imparting training to the women on skills that enable them to assert their socio -economic rights and the vital financial inclusion. . The training comprise of Micro level financial management,dry land farming methods,small scale entrepreneurial skills, skill to adapt to new fast digital technological tools like sending and receiving text messages on mobile phone. .Every month we impart skill training to 400 women. Upon training the women are facilitated with credit linkages from financial institutions like banks for livelihood and income generation activities.

Wish you happy children day and let us ensure quality education to all children.


The reinforced polythene sheets given to us after the last floods in the year 2015, went a long way in saving us from the heavy rains this week. Not even a drop of water entered in to our hut , as the hut was covered both in the side walls and the roof. But for this protection, our 50 sqft home would have been inundated in waters leaving us in the street. Hence I thank the Global Giving and the SPPD for this great help. Thank you.
