“Save A Family Plan” with the collaboration of TMSSS has enabled the poorest of the poor in Tuticorin Diocese to lead a self reliant and sustainable life from 1992. The Family Development Program (FDP) covers four regions (Tuticorin, Kurukkusalai, Manapad and Sathankulam). The target people are the widows, deserted women, deserved people, poverty stricken family and who have children below the age of 13.

The goal of the Family Development Programme is to bring self reliance among families through economic and social development initiatives. FDP supports the families with assistance of `900/- per month, for a period of 6 years to achieve their goal.

In the reporting period total 314 families are being benefited. 
















Regional Level Meeting 

Regional Level Meetings were conducted on 13, 14, 15.10.16. In the month of October, we have conducted three Regional Level Meetings in three regions Tuticorin, Jeeva Nagar and Sathankulam. We gave an input session on “Waste Management” to the beneficiariesin the RLM meeting.  It gives an opportunity to the beneficiaries to mingle with one another and to come out of their shyness and develop in their personal relationship skills. The objective of the meeting is to motivate the beneficiaries to initiate IGPs. The programme was led by Rev.Fr. Benjamin De Souza, the Director of TMSSS and Mr. Martin, the Coordinator of FDP and Animators. After the meeting, most of the Beneficiaries’ problems were listened to and necessary steps were taken to solve them.
