There are 66 young widows in the community now, who are supported by Om Shanthi Project. Some are trained by Shanthimalai Handicrafts (their partner organization), so that they may become self-supporting and can take care of their children themselves. They also find jobs for young widows elsewhere, which includes survey and control of their situation and their bosses, so that they are not abused. They even get higher education, if adequate. Young widows are trained in writing, reading, English, self-confidence and self-defense.
