Vas federation meeting 963x350
Leaders of a women’s federation that fights poverty by promoting microenterprise for women and campaigns against domestic and sexual violence.

Village Service Trust has been working for more than 35 years to support marginalised people in their pursuit of lives free from poverty, violence and discrimination in Tamil Nadu, southern India. The close relationships we maintain with our local partners ensure that grassroots knowledge is at the centre of our approach to sustainable community development.

We aim to provide stable, sensitive and responsive support to the poorest and most marginalised people in their activities to overcome poverty and discrimination. We take a rights-based approach to support communities to claim and secure their basic rights and entitlements.
