Sixteen transpersons have joined hands to form the 'Rotaract Club of TransMom' in Coimbatore on Thursday, with the help of Tamil Nadu Rotary Club of Coimbatore Downtown.
The club aims to identify the needs of the transgender community, especially in pursuing higher education and jobs.
Functionaries of Tamil Nadu Rotary Club of Coimbatore Downtown stated that this was the first such club in Tamil Nadu and second in the country after Bhubaneswar in Odisha.
A Dhanshika, who is pursuing her post-graduation and working in a government hospital, has been nominated as the club's trustee.
Addressing media, Dhanshika said, "When a person realises they are transgender, they come out of home due to pressure in their family. In such situations, many are not in a position to continue their education. We will focus on transpersons' education, which will give them employment opportunities. Our other objective is helping transpersons secure jobs," reported The New Indian Express.
