The girls at Janani Home work hard at school and focus well on their studies, but we recognise that physical activity is also vital for their health. Every Sunday the girls will have time to play sports, they have already shown much skill and ability. We are sure that they will progress quickly and adopt such extracurricular activities. We thank Sabari School for facilitating the play materials. Our Founder and Director, Arasu, very much enjoyed spending time with the girls and teaching them how to play football. We look forward to our next opportunity for fun in the sun.

What is the Celebration For?
This year's theme for International Day of the Girl Child is "GirlForce: Unscripted and Unstoppable". What if we replaced "GirlForce" with "Life"? Does this also work? It is important to note that life implies no gender and no gender restrictions. Girls and boys, like life, are "Unscripted and Unstoppable". This chosen theme successfully accentuates the equality of gender which exists, and the strength that both genders possess, which is often ignored or overlooked.
Celebrating at Prime Trust
It could be said that every day at Prime Trust is a Day of the Girl Child. Everyday our organisation recognises the help that is required, and seeks to present opportunities to those in need. Janani Home for Girls is a model example of how we can attempt to achieve gender equality across the world. It is also on days such as this that we would like to stop and thank those providing our organisation with child sponsorships. This support has an invaluable impact, and it is heart-warming to know that there are many more people in the world who believe in this tremendous cause; people who recognise the importance of an education, a safe home, good healthcare and a supportive family for girls.

The girls have regained their energy, and are in high spirits during their holiday week. Some of our generous sponsors brought round a noodle feast for the girls. But before food... a party! The girls were bursting with energy (even hyper in some cases) and brought a smile to everyone's face with their wonderful dancing. Any chance to play their favourite tunes and have a boogie, they will take it.

Every single person who walks through the door to work with us is invaluable, each having such an impact on the organisation and the lives of the people supported by Prime Trust. Paula, who travelled from Spain to work with us for two months was no exception. She has accomplished so much during her time here, teaching the girls at Janani Home many new lessons and skills, such as how to care for and respect your body through the practise of meditation and yoga.
Her departure was felt by all. However, all of our staff and the girls at Janani Home made sure to throw a wonderful farewell party. The girls worked hard on their goodbye cards, featuring the kindest words and colourful characters. These will no doubt be cherished by Paula forever.
Just when it seemed that the excitement was coming to an end, the girls surprised us with a terrific dance which they had spent much time rehearsing. Their huge smiles and grins were dazzling and extremely contagious. Paula also treated us to a performance of some Spanish dancing. Some of the girls began to imitate the moves, soon stopping though to marvel at Paula, dancing with such attitude and style.
It is extremely difficult to say farewell to someone so amazing, but the party is now a precious memory for all to cherish. This perhaps is not surprising, precious memories are abundant with such a wonderful group of people. There will no doubt be many more stories to share.
Who are we?
Located in the city of Pondicherry in Tamil Nadu, Prime Trust focuses on programs that empower local women, enable rural and urban poor to become self-reliant, raise social awareness, and educate underprivileged children.
Our reach has grown every year since our beginnings in 2002 thanks to the collaborations with volunteers and other grassroots NGOs and, most importantly, by putting the power of change in the hands of the people who need it the most.
What are our goals?

- To give the reader an insight of the work involved with an NGO such as Prime Trust
- To help the reader to get to know the amazing people that are supported by Prime Trust, their personalities and the joy that they bring into our lives
