PARD's formal website address is as followed: www.pard.org.in. We are currently focusing on the Projects to reduce child labor and create new livelihoods. There are two categories of children for whom we are currently working on. The first category of children is out of school and they are very young. We are trying to motivate them to rejoin the school, they could be accommodated in the school if we can support them with notebooks, uniforms, pen, pencils and school fees. The second category of children is also out of school but they cannot be brought into school again as they are already above the age of getting into school. For this category of children only, we are planning to conduct three wheeler and four wheeler driving training, as there is a high market demand for the drivers both in the private and public sectors of the transport sector in Madurai, India. For the first category of children, various kinds of education materials such as notebooks, school uniforms etc. are needed. For the second category of children, funding or educational material such as cars, fuels are needed. If you can find places willing to donate the above things, please contact me.
