In the Bangalore region, near an Alstom site, this project aims to address the lack of education in poor communities, the lack of environmental awareness, and the lack of opportunities for women to earn (leading to their children being used for child labour). The programme includes tree planting, helping women, widows and handicapped persons to set up small businesses, and helping children to get access to basic education.
