About Blossom Trust 

https://www.blossomtrust.org/

As a grass-root NGO based in Virudhunagar, our mission is to promote women-led development and resilient communities through collective networks, collaboration and awareness-raising. We are committed to changing the narrative, from women as disadvantaged and impoverished, to women as agents of change and pillars of development; creating the opportunity for them to take ownership and agency, and empowering them to empower their community. 

Blossom Trust manages Dayspring Home & Farm, the Crèche and our Buds Network. Ten Years ago, Blossom Trust established Dayspring Home for children in Chittoor, a rural area outside of Virudhunagar, to provide a safe, stable and nurturing environment and opportunities for vulnerable groups of children. The Crèche, in a suburb of Virudhunagar, offers childcare support for women in the area which then allows them to find work. The site is operated by a trained teacher and an assistant. The Buds Network project empowers underprivileged children in Tamil Nadu through after-school educational support.
