Shalom Community Development Projects … building futures … empowering a community

The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones …. Chinese Proverb

Many of the families living in Erampatti Village rely on seasonal work in the fields as their main source of income.  Job opportunities are scarce for unskilled and uneducated labourers, leaving many village families with little money to pay for food, medical care and their children’s education.

Through our project’s farming and building activities, we provide casual employment opportunities for many families from the village which helps boost household income.

We are currently gathering information on at setting up two small businesses (raising broiler chickens and a small sanitary pad production unit) to provide additonal income for the project and employment opportunties for people from the village.  More information on these new business ventures will be able later in 2015.
