The Tata Trusts have supported TLIT in three main areas since 2014.
- Leprosy Outreach: Under this project (2014-2018) we conducted mobile health camps at two locations within Delhi, besides facilitating surgeries and outpatient care at the Prem Sadan Leprosy Home run by Saint Teresa’s Sisters of the Missionaries of Charity in East Delhi. With the Tata Trusts’ generous financial support all the way from 2014 upto 2018, we were able to support the salaries of a leprologist, physiotherapist and individual much needed medicines. Tata Trusts support to this project has since ended.
- The H.I. Project: In 2016, Tata Trusts also extended support to our non-formal education program for Hearing Impaired children. This support crucially enabled us to hire additional special educators and speech therapists. As a result, in the last 3 years the numbers of our H.I children grew from 30 to 62, with an average of 8-10 children per class. TLIT was successfully able to mainstream 8 children (15 percent) into regular schools, a great achievement. Tata Trusts supported this program till September 2019 (which has now ended).
- Skill Development: Tata Trusts continue to support an ongoing program in skill development in three major areas: (a) Computer Software training (MS office, Tally) (b) Beauty training and (c) Tailoring and Stitching.
