South Asian Village Empowerment International’s (SAVE-INTL) goal is to provide the socially disadvantaged rural poor of Tamilnadu, South India with the tools to create a better and more secure future for themselves, their families and their villages.

These are the tools of self-empowerment: education, vocational skills, knowledge, literacy, and numeracy, which can lead them to enhanced economic security, social respect and power and greater community cooperation and solidarity.
