ACTIVITIES

NGO Activities : Since the Society intervenes in those villages which are remote and backward in Kupwara and Baramulla districts of Jammu and Kashmir, the focus has over the years been on the youth who feel estranged due to violence and less government opportunities in hilly areas. To an extent and with less resources, the Society has helped youth to think on other options than government employment. This has been achieved through the formation of Self Help Groups and successfully they are sustaining their livelihood. Simultaneously youth development programmes were launched whereby they get trained on issues of concern in their villages. This was supported by awareness camps where youth get information through resource persons on benefits of schemes. Besides they are also informed about the scourge of HIV/AIDS. While emphasis has been on males, females have not been left behind as the Society runs a training centre for artisans. Here impoverished and illiterate girls are imparted training to sustain their livelihood. They work on shawls, crewel, suits and bags etc. The Society’s marketing unit help them to sell their products to different outlets in Kashmir. Those girls who excel are being encouraged and deputed to various exhibitions in different states of the country.
