This is a project to rehabilitate the young women survivors of the bonded labour scheme existing in the textile mills in Tamilnadu (Dindigul is a textile hub, with may spinning mills. These employ teenage girls from nearby villages, promising huge sums of money for their marriage. But in reality they are bonded and made to work in unsafe, exploitative and poor working conditions, which is against the law in India. The Government often raids such work places and rescue these women and release them, but proper rehabilitation efforts are not done and they return to other forms of exploitative labour forms).
Following projects have been implemented to rehabilitate Sumangali workers
