Empowerment Programs

Youth welfare camps / Trainings

Most of the youth excelled even in board examinations in distinctions and merits.  Later the continuation of further education was difficult because it was college levels, very much expensive.

The only alternative was to go back to his/her village which would repeat the same underprivileged conditions from where she/he was picked up.  Initially, our experience and studies reveal that the youth was not being (after completion of 10th class) accommodated/accilimicised as he/she grew in rich congenial atmosphere provided in the hostels. 

When seriously thought of it, prayerfully we came up with a conclusion to start Youth Welfare Camps/Trainings that is giving technical training in respective skills.  Vocational skill training was given in typing, electrical works, motor driving, screen printing, computer training, basket making, sewing, tailoring and embroidery.

At the end of each course a recognized certificate was given along with subsidize equipment. Fortunately year by year the program excelled, many were able to earn themselves, their own livelihood and secured jobs.
