Prime Educational and Social Trust


Prime Educational and Social Trust (Prime Trust) was established in 2002. We work in areas including the Empowerment of Women, Integrated Child Development, Awareness Generation, Support for the Homeless, Rural Water and Sanitation and Rural Health and Hygiene. Prime Trust was built by local and international volunteers through their knowledge and skill and dedication. Prime Trust works in a transparent way. With committed team members, Prime Trust is growing day by day. Being a grass-root NGO, it requires man power to support the activities of Prime Trust. Prime Trust is unable to recruit professionals as it is lacking resources.

Music lessons with Tarun

Volunteering with Prime Trust was a lifetime experience!
The staff is extremely nice and helpful. They will show you around and will always be happy to answer your questions. The volunteering stay is a nice stay and close to the shops and projects. Pondicherry is overall a nice city to stay in, it has everything you need. Also the project has made some nice day trips to give you the opportunity to see some more of the environment.
Volunteering here is a good opportunity to do something for the people and experience their culture.
I was a music and English teacher at the Janani Home for Girls, the Evening Tution and the Sabari Primary School. I doesn't matter where you come from, everybody likes music, it connects people with each other. This was something I experienced during the project.
As a formal Indian citizen, I am blessed to had this opportunity to work this close with the Indian people and their culture. Prime Trust thank you for this amazing experience!

Feel free to ask any questions.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Don't rush. The Indian culture is sometimes quite hectic. Take it slow and accept some things will go different than you are used to. Don't forget to enjoy your time!

A life changing experience

I was a volunteer for Prime Trust and it changed my life completely! The experience was life changing and I had fun too! Working with them helped me to be more open and it was amazing helping them ! The city it’s charming too and you have a lot of activities to do besides your volunteering. It’s safe and the stuff it’s there to help you ! I had the opportunity to visit the houses of some of the students and see their reality ! It was really good they were really thankful. Also Pondicherry it’s a nice city to explore and you make friends from other countries to ! experiencing a new culture was amazing too! Food, new activities and a new way of living changed the way I was living ! I can’t wait to go back hopefully soon! It’s one of those trips that you enjoyed and look forward to have it again !

What would you improve about this program?
Making the programs more clear and having a consistency with volunteers
