LJT Foundation devotes their time in developing these people. From birth to death, these individuals face more tragedy in their lives, ranging from human rights violence, hunger, health problems, illiteracy, gender and child abuse, superstitions and cultural backwardness. These individuals (tribe, dalit, widows, street beggars, disabled, destitute aged, orphans, child labors and other abandoned) are beyond the bottom level of society, suffering from issues such as suppression, exploitation and deprivation. Their places of living and working are in rural and remote areas without the basic amenities, many of which are untouchable and unreachable. The differences seen between these people and others in society should be reduced and even be completely removed. These people should be protected and assisted in making the appropriate life and development changes to improve their lives.

URBAN WOMEN DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
LJT PROVIDES FOOD TIMELY FINANCIAL HELP, HEALTHY MOTIVATION TO ABANDONED OLD AGED PEOPLE. IT WORKS FOR IMPROVE THE RURAL WOMEN ECONOMY THROUGH TIMELY ASSISTANCE AND SELF EMPLOYMENT BY VARIOUS VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMS
In our findings rural areas 53% older women said that their most important need was food. Indian society is the only society, where people bless their dear ones with blessings like “Live for 100 years”, ”May god add my years to your life”, “May god bless you with 100 years of health and happiness”, etc. In India Old Age is a great Celebration in itself.Even today the concept of Elder Abuse is difficult to comprehend in Indian circumstances. But unfortunately it has become an ugly fact of life even in our society. Elder abuse, the mistreatment and torture of older people, a manifestation of the timeless phenomenon of inter-personal violence is prevalent in Indian families too. This is an extremely sorry state of affairs. Imagine, being mistreated, verbally abused, and denied proper food, proper medication and care by younger members of family. Older people are indeed in a very helpless situation with eroding social value system in India.
In broad prospective, Elder Abuse comprise all such situations, in which
older persons think that they are not leading or could not lead a
respectable or independent life. To deal with such situations at individual
level in particular and to protect the interests of older persons in general
in India, LJT Foundation has initiated several projects.
LJT aims to disabuse the popular mindset that regards old age with a sense of pity for their helplessness. Replacing it with an attitude of confidence, fostering respect for them and encouraging fortitude in them. A some of volunteers is already at work in given areas. They are constantly alert to attend, to matters of medical or emotional nature, affairs to do with security as well as legal and financial advice. They are spread across each city so that no cry for help goes
Old women have restricted social interaction, limited earning possibilities, several medical complications, emotional isolation (in many cases even from their own children), very limited knowledge or awareness of their legal rights and natural reluctance to seek justice.
In many Indian societies women are considered second class citizens. They have been legging behind in almost all walks of life for centuries. They have never been financially independent. Due to less social interaction they even don’t know about their rights and powers. They are always dependent on male members of the family for their basis needs, even for day-to-day requirements.
Whereas in rural areas 53% older women said that their most important need was food.
Rural educational development program
According to the world population, India is one of the biggest in the world, nearly six million villages with in it, most of the people are living in villages, they are depending upon the rain water only for their agriculture, lot of people they are struggling to win their daily bread, and to feeding, education to their children because, especially children from urban and rural side stopped their education with low level behalf of following problemsOur the lord Jesus trust ljt dedicated to provide healthy food to age 3rd to 16 children, Maintain community hall to recreation, study; get motivation to lift up their lives,
Children of widows and destitute women are being provided with educational materials. They are freed from school dropout and education breaking. The burden of the women on education is reduced. Hence the children are continuing in studies and the victim of education dropout is averted
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
In the severe economical crisis on widows’ life with poverty, sex abuse, isolation of community and working place issues, children's education is a questionable one and they can’t meet the expenses of the education. So, the women are putting down their children education and care. Daily her life is covered with so many issues and burdens. In the condition, their children drop out which is taking them in to child labor engagement and making some trafficking victims.
1 .Poverty-not sufficient income to maintain the study of the children, so they become drop outs and they are sent to work for a daily wage. It’s nothing but a manifestation of child labor.
2. Underemployed, unemployed, unemployable and uncaring parents- In our surrounding villages, most of the bread winners don’t care about their family members, because of their irregular work, drug , regular alcohol addiction and the holding of darkness. As a result, their children are struggling to continue their education they becomes child labor
3. Innocent and illiterate parents- They don’t know the importance and values of education, because they were brought up in that way. This situation hinders their children’s education. Stoped their child’s education
4.Condition of the orphans- Especially father less and motherless and careless children have no encouragement, motivation, moral support, love and care, study materials, school fees, uniforms, tuition fees, board and lodging for the peaceful studies to build their future carriers.
5. Poor children: In our deep analysis, the term “poor children” means poor parents send the children to school up to sixth or tenth standard only and they are just sending, but they don’t know to give proper guidance or they are planning to follow their (parents’) occupation. Even they have no healthy food ,These children are careless, with no proper motive, score very low mark, and are below average, incapable to understand their subjects, become stressed out because of their immediate needs and their parents’ as well, devoid of basic amenities and of study materials.
HEALTH AWARENESS PROGRAMS
Healthy nation is wealthy nation, India is no 2. In poor sanitation, several slums are surrounding us, rural urban discriminated people are suffering in lack of basic knowledge about health awareness, and also moving their lives in unchangeable worse condition by poverty

.personal care hygiene practices, avoid from contagious disease ,dengue, malaria, typhoid
The objective of our site is to educate our audience consisting of young adults to the late 30’s about the unsanitary living conditions in Indian slums. Currently, the living conditions in the slums are abominable; therefore, children are dying at a rapid rate. All generations are experiencing malnutrition and the slum-dwelling population has increased over the decades. We would like to illustrate to our readers how the slum-dwellers have been impacted, how the education system is not giving children the precious gift of learning they all deserve, the necessary support they need from their parents but do not receive, and the basic facilities to live a healthy life or live at all. With our presented information, we attached several links to organizations that are already volunteering to help the slums in India. We want to inspire people globally to aid and help cure the unsanitary conditions in Indian slums by educating them about the conditions and the life of a slum-dweller.
Diseases and Health Care
Diseases -Diarrhoea, parasitic infestation and fecal oral epidemics are due to poor sanitation and no access to basic facilities such as restrooms. In India, 15 hundred thousand children die each day because of diarrhoea and every 15 seconds a child dies because of water related diseases. According to Gethin Chamberlain, nearly 2 million Indian children die under five each day and that is the highest number all over the world. Ways that all of this could be prevented is by aiding them with clean water and providing them access to basic facilities; restrooms being the main one
According to Gethin Chamberlain, Indian state healthcare was supposed to be opened to all and supply both rich and poor with the necessary healthcare, but to date they have failed to do that. They have not been out to reach the slum areas and get them the healthcare they deserve. Sometimes, people in the slum get sick and start to develop symptoms that later on turn out to be a mortal disease, but the two reasons why they do not go and seek help is because 1. It is considered luxury to them and 2. The medical help is sometimes too far to go and by the time they get there the sick do not always make it (Shireen Miller). Sometimes, the ones who are lucky enough to make it and get medical assistance are not treated properly. They are being vaccinated with used syringes that sometimes have been used more than 10 times on different people with different diseases. This leads them to get more illnesses and exposes them to death much faster. Children sometimes find these syringes when they are playing around and they pick them up and go resell them for 10 cents each, or they use it to drink water. This is something that should not be happening but unfortunately it is, due to the healthcare being unattended and not treating them the right way.
n India basically widow means un fortune woman or unlucky person, nobody wants to see just her face, they believe if they see that whole day would be cursed, and loss. thousands of years our culture follows this evil practice, even today most of them being affected, and they have been rejected in all, family functions, celebrations, social and all economical, right based status and also her children are struggling to get their benefits and legal rights
Destitute women development program Ljt wants liberate and promote their lifestyle through, following matters 1. Strengthening their hands, motivation, raise our voice for them self
As widows, women suffer some of the most severe subjugation of their whole lives. Widowed women are harassed, abused, and denied land and livelihood.
The widows have to face many kinds of deprivation: economic, social, cultural and emotional. Of all the deprivation the economic derivation is the most harmful. The research that has been done shows that household headed by widows suffer dramatic decline in per capita income and that the mortality risk of widowhood was higher for women than men. Among basic causes of their vulnerability are restrictions on the residence, inheritance, remarriage and employment opportunities of widows. The situation of widows in North India is worsened by the system of Patrilocal residence, whereby widows cannot return to their parents' home even though they are often rejected by their in-laws.
There are very limited opportunities for widows living in households without an adult male to engage in income-earning activities. Criticized for being dependent, widows are severely restricted by cultural norms in the kind of self-employment they can undertake to reduce that dependency.
Environmental Development program
Make Green India, Green World, and also keep ever Green Universe
Ljt working hardly to stop deforestation and tries and motivate villagers, and city people to give awareness in school and college students to tree plantation ,thousands of trees for following reasons,
1, we are working in so many villages in pudukottai, and other districts through open preaching and giving five free plants(guava, gooseberry, teak, illuppai, jack fruit tree in raining season to villagers’
2. and also we want to develop rural urban people to get income and self employment through increase fruit&herbal making
3. Awareness programs about global warming and deforestation
4.in Aranthangi pudukkotai dist, there is a biggest wood(timber)market, every Monday lot of big logs are coming by trucks, tracters, bullock charts for sale, around tamilnadu traders are marketing here, so deforestation is increasing
Global warming and Tree plantation
Trees have always been a key symbol of the environmental movement and there are many like-minded organizations devoting considerable time and energy to planting trees. However, a valid question to pose to any tree planting organization is why dedicate time and resources to plant trees? Some reasons to justify this are obvious, some not so. Below are some key factors that attempt to show trees are more than a token symbol of environmentalism, they are in fact key components to global ecosystems.
· Carbon sequestration
Trees act as natural filters of our air. Through the process of photosynthesis trees absorb carbon dioxide (a key greenhouse gas and principle contributor to global warming) from the atmosphere and store the carbon in their trunk, branches, leaves, roots, soil and foliage, while releasing oxygen back into the atmosphere. The debate about the use of trees for climate change mitigation has been somewhat heated over recent times, however there is a solid consensus emerging from sound scientific studies that under certain conditions trees do provide a viable means for the net removal of CO2 from the atmosphere.
Cancer awareness program
Awareness gives knowledge Knowledge gives understanding Understanding bring success
Ljt believes through giving awareness program,
1, we can stop and decrease smoking, alcohol, snuff, chewing and tobacco using
2. And also stop new entry to such a evil practices, young generations
3. Strong voice against tobacco products
4.voice against to fancy&attractive advertisements by film stars, players,
big shots, icons towards tobacco and alcohol
In our findings, India is large population basically from teen agers to various age group of people from city and villagers ,students affected by this cause “unawareness about cancer “without knowing or awareness “voluntarily t hey are getting involved such practices ,some body by friends, inspirited by cini stars, by advertisements, following elders ,for fantasy, s social status, somebody for style, “if you want to be a man you must smoke “such a worthless saying among unskilled laborers ,lorry and long journey truck, bus drivers, street sellers ,hotel industry, low level laborers ,it deeply destroying the healthy society, it produces fatherless children, uncared orphans, helpless widows
Tobacco is the single largest cause of premature death. Since the first Surgeon General’s Report in 1964 on the health risks of tobacco use, overwhelming evidence regarding increased tobacco-attributable morbidity and mortality has been reported. Worldwide, tobacco kills 4 million people every year (Murray & Lopez 1997). By 2020, the annual
toll will rise to 10 million. Studies done in Tamil Nadu have shown that the prevalence of
tobacco smoking among middle aged (35-69 yrs) men is 38% in urban area and 47% in rural area and among females less than 1% irrespective of their area of residence. A large retrospective study (Gajalakshmi et al. 2003) with 27 000 adult males (cases) and 20 000adult male controls in urban Tamil Nadu showed that 50% of smokers died due to the habit of smoking and one-third of deaths in middle aged men from medical causes would have been avoided if the smokers had had non-smoker death rates. Smoking probably caused about 700 000 deaths in India during the year 2000 and this will double between2000 and 2025 (Gajalakshmi et al. 2003). Global Youth Tobacco Survey (GYTS) that focuses on adolescents aged 13-15years was conducted in the schools in Tamil Nadu as part of on-going survey in over 150countries in the world. The Global Youth Tobacco Survey is a worldwide collaborative surveillance initiative that includes governmental and non-governmental organizations

Elderly people contribute immensely to the growth of society - provided that they are properly cared for. Cases of poverty, neglect, inadequate health care, lack of health insurance and even abuse against senior citizens are rising by the day - pretty surprising for a country thats famous for its culture of respect for the elderly.

Real story: 1
In our town there was an old man of nearly 70 years. He couldn’t walk and his children didn’t care about him. He came to streets and begging and staying on the road side. It was Christmas occasion and that old man didn’t have even blankets to protect him from cold. So, we purchased a blanket and gave it to him as a loving Christmas gift. It was winter and he was comforted by the woolen blanket at that time. I prayed to Lord saying give me a chance to build a home for such people to feed and clothe them in their last days
COMMUNITY HORMONAL PROGRAM

2.CHP helps to getting notorious food ,like egg, chicken ,veg-biriyani (gee added) from poor young children to old aged people they are enjoying to participate in it
"Giving food is as good as giving life" is a saying . It is believed that those who provide food are elevated to the status of lord.”I was hungry you fed me” In all the charities, the greatest importance is placed for providing free food for the needy. LJT has great interest in providing free food for the needy. At the same time, he feels by providing free food, one should not become lazy. The intention is to provide free food for those who are really poor, who work hard but could not get food, who are unemployed and who does services to God, Mankind without any expectation in return. In older days, there were many free meal centers catering to the needs of poor people and weary travelers. Now a days, we hardly find such free food centers. So, LJT wants to change the situation. Even in our center to establish free food ,The trust has been distributing food to the needy
Also to provide food to the needy – the old and the infirm, for there lies His feet and face.
Children Cultural Program
Children are the bright future of the nation and world.
The aim of this cultural program is to development and analyze outcomes and potentials of culture for children and youth in local communities in order to create possible strategy for development of culture for children and youth. the cultural development of children and youth and different influences which affect that development. The current situation in india regarding the issue of development of culture for children and youth is presented, by analysis of the responsibilities, strategies, programs and activities In order to reveal good practices, In the final part, based on all conclusions, are drafted recommendations for stimulation of development of culture for children and young, addressed to the policy makers, cultural institutions and civil sector, schools and educational centers.Today, consequences of neglecting culture are still present in all layers of our society and the casteism and communal riots, behavioral change, terrorisms is biggest threat for nurturing culture and transmitting cultural and aesthetic values and identity to the future generations is undefined cultural policy for children and youth in indiaCulture
In the numerous spoken and written definitions the word “culture” is most commonly used inthree basic senses: excellence of taste in the fine arts and humanities, also known as high culture; an integrated pattern of human knowledge, belief, and behavior that depends upon the capacity for symbolic thought and social learning; the set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution, organization or group.2 Those tree dimensions separate spheres of aesthetic, moral, social and technological experience which are, in fact, connected and have dynamic interactions between them. Therefore, the concept of culture need to be observed and defined as a totality of community’s conventions and values – economic, legal, political, religious, moral, familial, technological, scientific and aesthetic. „In its widest sense, culture may now be said to be the whole complex of distinctive spiritual, material, intellectual and emotional features that characterize a society or Social group. It includes, not only the arts and letters, but also modes of life, the Fundamental rights of the human being, value systems, traditions and habits“.
Youth Cultural Program
youths are the future growth of the nation and world.
The Culture Program has a valuable role to play in supporting LJT’s new policy agenda in the field of Culture. We have therefore sought in this brochure to highlight projects which are relevant to its priorities. You will find examples of projects promoting the mobility of artists, the circulation of works, access by young people to culture, synergies with education, access to our common cultural heritage, digitisation, intercultural dialogue, and creativity and innovation. Several projects also address equal opportunities themes and some link up to the subject of climate change. As many of these themes are closely related, most of the projects are multi-dimensional, addressing more than one of these topics. The projects cover a range of sub-sectors and some adopt an inter-disciplinary approach.
We hope that this brochure will help raise awareness of the activities in the field of culture and unity across the Nation and States. We also trust that it will provide ideas for project promoters as well as information for policy-makers about concrete activities at grass-roots level which could contribute to their policy priorities.
youth engagement support program

The program provides the necessary ideas and skills to engage young people in the local community through arts, creativity and training. Offering new and different ways of engaging young people and connect young people to other parts of the community with peace and unity towards growth of economy and co-operations
Build Peace Home Project
At least 78 million people are homeless in India despite the country growing in global economic stature.
However, it still ranks as the 124th wealthiest country in the world as of 2003. More than 90 million people in India make less than per day, thus setting them below the global poverty threshold.The ability of the Government of India to tacke urban homelessness and poverty may be affected in the future by both external and internal factors. The number of people living in slums in India has more than doubled in the past two decades and now exceeds the entire population of Britain, the Indian Government has announced. The number of people living in slums is projected to rise to 93 million in 2011 or 7.75 percent of the total population almost double the population of Britain. Prior to the release of Slum dog Millionaire in 2008, Mumbai was a slum tourist destination for slumming where homeless people and slum dwellers alike could be openly viewed at by tourists.
Some of the problems leading to homelessness include: disability (either mentally, physically, or both), lack of affordable housing (considering that a basic apartment in India costs approximately $177 USD per month, unemployment (either seasonal or through economic hardships), and changes in industry.
Jobs involving heavy industry and manufacturing (that require only a high school level of education) are being replaced by service industry jobs (which may or may not require a high level of education). Since university is less affordable for the average Indian than it is for the average North American or European citizen due to their lower per capita income level, more people in India are becoming unemployable for the jobs of the 21st century, LJT find out reasons among homeless poor, landless, deep poverty, hiking of price of building materials and constructions of labor, bribe of govt officials in allotments of lands, lot of them even they couldn't repair the huts ,ljt concerning to repair or build peace homes for such homeless, and old aged uncared people
Ramu from dalit community omitted by his own family, struggling in deep poverty with his family and children, even in the heavy raining season he couldn't repair his small unsafe hut by thunder and rain, ljt made good home to his family due to deep poverty and inability ,hiking of housing materials labour charges ,numerous populations thousands of poor people are waiting
