El Shaddai has opened a new center in Chintadripet a locality in Chennai on 18th of July 2015 named ‘Dream Centre’. India. Chintadripet area has one of the biggest Slums in Chennai, the slum is a habitat to more than 10,000 people. We empower women by providing Vocational Training like Computers, tailoring, etc. We hold community health work & outreach programmes, medical camps which enables us to communicate with a large number of families living in slums. We teach them the importance of education, family planning, cleanliness and hygiene practices. Through this project we are helping over 125 women & children.
The slum contains nearly 500 huts in an area of 1 km. Each hut provides a space only for two people. The slum dwellers reside in an unhygienic place with no proper shelter facilities. People are working on daily wages and work in fish market. Most of the children do not attend school, we also found many children who were malnourished. People are suffering from different kinds of infectious diseases.
