Hotspot operations: September 2015 – January 2023
The Freedom Fund’s hotspot in Tamil Nadu, southern India, promoted child protection in textile production areas by supporting government bodies to promote labour protections; assisting NGOs that work with communities to gain access to government schemes and entitlements; supporting children and adolescents in their education; and working with mill management to offer trainings and build capacity.
The Freedom Fund ceased providing funding to NGOs in 2021 due to Indian government restrictions on foreign funders. Until January 2023, Freedom Fund consultants provided technical support to former Freedom Fund grantees. This work has now concluded.
