Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu

This project is part of the sustainable income–generating activities for a group of villages in Thiroporo Block, Tamil Nadu. With Rural Development Trust Interlock has provided three Day Care Centres (more are being built) in Kanchipuram for children of migrant workers in the area. The deepening of 30 wells has also been financed, with 15 wells already completed. Interlock and RDT set up Shantimaya, a model farm / meeting place for local farmers and visitors to meet, share experiences and learn about integrated rural development and the introduction of organic methods of crop husbandry. Shantimaya means ‘peaceful place’ in Tamil and reflects the goal of Interlock to promote peace, dialogue and experience sharing.
