Nandri (legal name Child Aid Ireland India) Nandri has been supporting development programmes in the Vellore and Tiruvannamalai districts of Tamil Nadu, Southern India since 1996. CAII currently supports seven programmes: Child sponsorship; Microfinance for third level education; Mothers' self-help groups; Microfinance family income generation; Rural development centre; Agricultural income generation and training. Nandri has supported over 5,000 children to access primary and secondary education. In the first half of 2014, 48 students who had benefited from the child sponsorship scheme graduated from third level education. Since 2012, Nandri has also provided 700 mothers with micro finance loans to improve their livelihoods. Nandri's vision is that all children from Vellore and Tiruvannamalai districts in Tamil Nadu state have equal access to quality education, regardless of gender, ethnicity or social/caste status and that women and men be treated with equal respect, non-discrimination and opportunity for income generation and decision making in the home and community. Nandri's mission is to improve the income, education and health of families in Vellore and Tiruvannamalai districts, particularly Dalit and Dhobi families, by financing access up to and including third level education for children, by providing mothers with financial support for income generation and by training mothers in health, nutrition, finance and human rights. Nandri's strategic goals for 2015-2018 are: Support children from predominantly Dalit and Dhobi communities to access quality education up to and where possible including third level education. Empower mothers from predominantly Dalit and Dhobi communities to capitalize on their existing land assets, access income generating assets and loans and improve their knowledge of nutrition, health and human rights issues. Formalise internal organisational structures, policies, systems and processes and strengthen board leadership.

Growing a Wood - Growing Community - Growing Knowledge and Understanding 10 years - 10,000 children - 10,000 trees This is a conservation project that has its eye set firmly on the need for future environmental stewardship. Planetary conservation and protection of biodiversity needs more champions than ever before and the young people in our society are the decision-makers of tomorrow. With a growing disconnect between young people in urban communities and the natural environment, it is more important than ever before to put them at the heart of environmental projects. We have formed a COMMUNITY of 25 local schools, youth groups, volunteers and businesses working in partnership together and with specialist environmental organisations. Our aim over the decade 2012-2021 is to involve every young person in our community in creating new woodland, somewhere to relax, to enjoy, to learn. Once the 12-acre wood is complete, tree planting will continue through partnerships with local landowners as we plant outwards from Harmony Woods creating green corridors that link to nearby woodland and copses. We offer regular volunteering in nature for all irrespective of age or ability and offer training in green crafts, including coppicing, constantly striving to grow the volunteer base both in numbers and capacity. The first 5 years were spent establishing the project; the second 5 years is about realising its potential, a major part of which is to support 6 of our 25 schools to develop programmes of outdoor learning linked to arts and science and based on the wood that their students are helping to plant. We are currently fundraising to employ an education officer, fund outdoor learning programmes led by local artists and convert a pair of steel containers into an off-grid woodland 'Cabin', an all-seasons base for volunteers and a teaching space for all, connecting people to nature and local heritage.
