The People’s Association for Community Health Education Trust (PACHE Trust) is a grass- roots level non-profit and non- governmental organization functioning for the dedicated cause of uplifting the rural poor with due emphasis on the betterment of women and children. The organization is also involved in a considerable number of HIV/AIDS prevention projects among the highly vulnerable groups. The organization has been involved in many projects involving community health, women’s empowerment etc. PACHE Trust, in joint venture with SIGHT AND LIFE, has been engaged in the prevention of vitamin A deficiency disorders (VADD) in recent years. The SIGHT AND LIFE Newsletter 1/2002 contained an article from PACHE Trust (pp. 20–21), and pictures of program activities were included in News- letter 3/2004, p. 48. The project was launched in districts where children were found to be prone to deficiency diseases. It is one of the most significant projects in Tamil Nadu addressing the needs of children below 10 years of age. VADD are a major health concern among children, especially the rural poor. The project has been attaining increasing success with every passing year. The community has been sensitized and there is visibly increased awareness on the prevention of VADD. The goals, to treat and prevent VADD, have not changed over the years. The methods of communication, training and of raising attention for precautionary measures have been developed and refined. More attention is now given to pregnant and lactating mothers. Achievements include reaching more children, the orientation of school teachers, regular school visits, regular vitamin A supplementation (vitamin A capsules), health camps, giving attention to people with other diseases and a strong collaboration with authorities.
