About Us

THENDRAL MOVEMENT

In our project areas women and girls face violence from their intimate partners, sexually harassed, no property rights, less access to jobs and healthcare. Children lack access to education and care.

It was found by Ms. VEDHANAYAGI in 2006.Based in Ranipet District, Tamilnadu. THENDRAL is a Tamil word meaning “BREEZE” and THENDRAL is the abbreviated form of “The Holistic Eagerly Nature Development Related Alternative Life”. The purpose is to serve humanity through the concept of Back to Nature. On a road to globalization with rapid changes in the technological growth, people are alienated from balanced social life. Despite the growth in technological aspects, many social evils still persist and unaddressed. In this scenario, service to the humanity has acquired a new relevance. It demands equipped people to meet the challenges of life so that it will help them contribute their share in healing some of the social imbalances. Our programmes and activities are for the welfare, advancement, and empowerment of the needy, poor, deprived in the perspective of women to establish the violence free social order.

Our Programs

Program Text

THENDRAL Movement's presence is crucial to addressing these social evils in our project areas. Being a victim herself, our founder understood the difficulties these women were going through in their lives. Thendral Movement's community development programmes involve effective participation of our target communities to bring improvement in socio-economic, health, political, educational, psychological, and cultural aspects of their lives. Through counselling, awareness generation, skill training, education, and vocational training, we have empowered communities to be self-reliant. THENDRAL's interventions in the lives of victimized women have brought some significant changes in their lives. Our journey to uplift communities until we create a violence-free social order in society.

WOMEN EMPOWERMENT

Women from marginalized communities, widows, and single mothers are very often excluded from availing the livelihood opportunities in society, abused by patriarchy, and restrained from exercising their basic rights. We coordinate with the government, and other like-minded organizations in reaching these target communities and provide solutions based on the problems they face through networking, guidance, formation of SHGs, family counselling, women forum, income generation activities, legal justice, care for victims, and awareness generation for their rights. Our overall aim is to promote gender equality, behavioural changes, improve their standard of living, social security, and reduce suicide and divorce rates.
