Gardening

Story of hope

The inmates at Atchayam Rehabilitation Centre are involved in gardening activities which help them in being active and stay positive and at the same time develop their skills.

He, a 65 year old farmer who belongs to Paramathi Velur was leading a happy life with his family until one day when he met with a bus accident in which his left arm got injured. Due to this injury he was unable to lift heavy materials. At the same time, he was also not able to earn much income from agriculture. As a result, with an aim to earn money he came to Erode in search of a job.

He had been working as a Food Supplier in marriage halls for the last 15 years but unfortunately he lost his job one year ago and was left stranded on roads without knowing what to do next. Without being able to meet his basic needs and not wanting to go back to his family, Mr. Nadesan was found eating the food offered by the public in Paneer Selvam Park, Erode and also started begging for money with which he used to drink alcohol and consume cigarette.

Story of hope

He, had a lot of disputes with his family and had problems with his wife which led to an increase in consumption of alcohol. His habits and behavior only increased their family issues and as result he got separated from them. He used all his income in consuming alcohol and cigarettes. From working as a painter to hotel supplier and staying within his working premises, he was addicted to alcohol and cigarette being not able to solve his family issues.


As a result of COVID-19 lockdown, he lost his job and was found on streets near Paneerselvam Park. He was recovered by Atchayam Trust and was provided with food and accommodation during the pandemic period. He was rehabilitated through counseling process and during his stay in Atchayam Rehabilitation Centre he has been involved in gardening activities which is helping him overcome his problems. Atchayam Trust has also helped Mr. Venkatraman rejoin with his family and lead a happy and dignified life on his own.
