Providing Tools to Boat Workers

Not only did the tsunami ravage the lives of the fishermen, it also hit the lives of those who earn a living by providing services to the fishing industry. The Family India has been helping these allied workers by making it possible for them to be self-reliant once again.

Boat Carpenters: The tsunami swept away the tools of the carpenters who work on the fishing boats, thereby rendering them unable to support their families. In response we have provided toolsets to 51 boat carpenters in Malumiyarpettai in Cuddalore, thereby empowering them to make a living and support their families once again.
