Tamil Nadu Rural Reconstruction Movement (TRRM)

 

TRRM focuses on providing help to fisher folk in Ramanathapuram district, in the extreme south east of India, addressing child labour and women’s development programmes. Recently, through micro-finance funding,the Friends have provided for Tiffin shops which sell food, bulk shrimp packaging and processing, purchase of crab nets, and fish drying.

 

A lively trade has developed selling decorated shells and ornaments to the many tourists visiting the district.The proceeds are reinvested in new related projects. Many of the projects have created better incomes by eliminating the middle man who lived off the fisher folk’s margin.Five villages have been transformed through the support from the Friends.
