The New LEED Trust

The New LEED Trust is a NGO working in the field of education for underprivileged and economically backward people in India. The meaning of LEED is: Liberation, Education, Economic Development.

The New LEED Trust is functioning from the year 1991 and is registered as a charitable trust (Regd. No. 934/2000, 12AA Income Tax act1961)

At present The New LEED Trust is working in slum community of Thiruvalluvar Nagar in Perungudi in Chennai, which is near to Perungudi Railway station.




Perungudi
Perungudi is a wide spread slum mainly displaced underprivileged community from various parts of the city due to various development programs. This urban slum is located nearby Perungudi railway station and it exists for more than 50 years. The local name for this area is “Kallukuttai” which consist of more than 2000 families. This area has no proper basic facilities such as roads, toilets, water, schools, colleges, hospitals and medical shops. This area has 5 tea and snacks shops, 1 electrical and building hardware shops, a mosque and temple. Most of the houses are huts made of recycling materials.

The streets are difficult to be used even during a small rain. Majority of the people are working in an unorganised sector such as construction, domestic maid, housekeeping, security agency etc. Illiteracy, alcohol addiction, unemployment and child marriage are some of the social problems in this area. This area does not have proper streets and water facilities which makes the people to depend on private water suppliers.

Library
In Perungudi center we opened a small library for youths and children where they can read and study after school.

Basket Making
Women showed interest in income generating programs. In association with "Varnajalam" they supply handmade baskets and earn their wages.

Tailoring Center
Many women are interested in learning tailoring. So tailoring classes were started. This training will enable them to learn a new skill and help them to become more self relia
