Interlife Onlus currently operates in southern India alongside the most vulnerable communities and poorer castes of Indian society.
With interventions in the fight against poverty and sustainable development, Interlife supports over 85,000 direct and indirect beneficiaries in about 140 villages of the rural districts of Pudukkottai, Sivaganga and Thanjavur, in the state of Tamil Nadu.
In this area, where one person in four lives below the poverty line, Interlife Onlus supports every day children alone, orphans or semi-orphans, child laborers, women and men who live in conditions of great hardship and poverty, elderly and the sick, working in direct contact with the communities and in close collaboration with a wide network of local organizations officially recognized by the Central Government.
Collaborating with organizations rooted in the territory and specialized in community development and children protection, allows Interlife to identify the real needs of the population and to develop solutions and models of participatory development, shared and sustainable.
Constant communication and frequent monitoring missions and training by Interlife experts (agronomists, doctors, etc.), also ensure a gradual transfer of responsibilities to local staff members (around 80% of Interlife’s operators), contributing to increase the know-how in the areas of intervention and the consequent natural process of local development.
