IMPROVING EMPLOYABILITY THROUGH VOCATIONAL TRAINING
Over the years, Chavara Cultural Centre has been boosting productive employment and entrepreneurship among the youth as well as women by encouraging the growth of micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises.
Chavara Cultural Centre also has under its wing the registered charitable organization, Chavara Inspire that aims to provide inspiring programmes and dynamic support in meeting the social needs of children and adults living with HIV / AIDS. This inter alia includes providing them with Scholarships and Educational Support, creating positives vibes, providing employment training and ensuring employment. The Centre is determined to continue its efforts in reinstating people living with HIV / AIDS / physical handicaps through treatment and promotion of well-being.
in June 2016, Chavara Cultural Centre set up the “Risty Foundation” - an Anti-Drug Awareness Campaign to fight against drug trafficking and prevention of drug abuse among school children. The brutal day light murder of a 10 year old innocent child by a drug addict in Kochi prompted us to take up this noble cause with the objective of creating a drug-free society.
CHAVARA INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR THE VISUALLY CHALLENGED (CIIVC–SRVC)
Through CIIVC-SRVC, Chavara Cultural Centre is also involved in uplifting persons with physical/visual/mental challenges and has been creating innovative solutions to help them achieve their full potential in society. By catering to their special needs, the Centre has been kindling the lamp of hope in their lives and empowering them with an assured source of living.
