Project Coordinator - Blossom Trust

About Blossom

Founded in 1993, Blossom Trust is a grassroots NGO based in the district of Virudhunagar,

Tamil Nadu, India. With the initial focus on the social and economic empowerment of

underprivileged women and a safe and nurturing space for vulnerable children, over time, we

have committed to creating a strong foundation for sustainable community ownership. We

believe that women have the capabilities to build resilient communities as the pillars of

development; therefore, we strongly invest in the empowerment of these women through

three main activities. Firstly, by establishing community-based organizations and networks

which are primarily women-led. This allows collective action and collaboration to be at the

forefront of our interventions, with higher success. Secondly, through advocacy and

awareness-raising, we strongly believe that everyone has the right to access information.

Knowledge empowerment plays a profound role in community development and allows

women in the community to make well-informed decisions for themselves and their

households. Thirdly, we train and invest in women to develop their skills allowing them to

thrive further. Finally, towards the protection and nurturing of young minds, Blossom also

operates Dayspring Children’s Home which houses and educates children struggling with TB

and HIV/AIDS and/or come from vulnerable households. With our vision, mission and

Theory of Change in mind, we have a strong commitment towards women empowerment and

community development.
