Villupuram is one of the districts in Tamil Nadu that falls behind in various social indicators. Child labor and child marriages are highly prevalent in the district. The rate of child marriages in the district is (21%) higher than the Tamil Nadu state average (15%). In addition to the child marriages, child labor is prevalent in the district. In spite of efforts put forward by NT and other such organizations, issues of child marriages and child labor are rampant within the district. Child trafficking is one more issue prevailing in the district. Children, particularly girl child, are trafficked as domestic helps to various places in Tamil Nadu and outside Tamil Nadu. Such children face severe physical and emotional abuse both in the short term and the long term. NT is putting in efforts in fighting these social evils by bringing in awareness and thereby empowering the people vis-a-vis child related issues. Campaigns related to child labor, child marriages, child trafficking, HIV AIDS, significances of education, etc, are being undertaken by the NT. NT is CHARITABLE TRUST working for the vulnerable groups of people in our society. Presently we are working in Villupuram District. We mainly focus on children who are in risk.
