Promoting the social inclusion of vulnerable families from slum areas in India

The project

ATIA provides support services to vulnerable and economically disadvantaged communities living in some of the poorest slums of Mumbai and Jaipur, in India. The project aims to significantly reduce social issues in these slum areas – including a lack of access to healthcare services and to education – by providing women with the tools they need to improve their own lives. ATIA works with a network of local partners, providing them with technical and operational support, as well as training.

Fondation CHANEL is supporting ATIA to provide psychosocial support to 7,000 vulnerable families in seven slum towns in Mumbai and two slum towns in Jaipur, India. The project targets women heads of households and aims to help them identify and prioritize their needs, as well as identify the existing public and private services that are available to assist them. Additionally, with the support of the Fondation CHANEL, ATIA will create additional services to help the families access economic opportunities and increase their revenues.

The partner

ATIA is a non-profit organization that works to empower some of the world’s most vulnerable communities by giving them the will and tools they need to improve their lives by their own means. ATIA is currently supporting more than 47,000 families in Madagascar, India, and Mozambique.
