Blossom facilitates a process where marginalized groups can become self-sufficient in improving their health, environmental, economic and social needs.
To achieve this, we work in partnership with other actors in the spirit of art, culture and community.
The result is a flourishing community of Blossom-sponsored programs, all dedicated to providing care and creating opportunities for those among us who are most vulnerable.
Active in the Virudhunagar and Kanchipuram districts in Tamil Nadu, Blossom’s objective is to ensure communities have greater access and control over their resources.
Blossom specializes in fostering projects that create sustainable Community Based Organisations (CBOs). We have nurtured projects, such as the Paneer HIV+ Women’s Network and Rainbow TB Forum, both of which are now independent legal entities, although still closely connected with Blossom, with membership numbers in the hundreds.
Our programs include:
Campaign for Education, Prevention and Treatment of TB (CEPT), Prevention of Parent to Child Transmission of HIV/AIDS (PPTCT), Blossom Creche, Dayspring Home and Organic Farm, and the BUDS Network.
Crèche is a childcare centre opened by Blossom in 2003 as a service to mother labourers.
