Although Kerala is a relatively stable state with high development & high literacy rates, it is also a region with high levels of youth unemployment & increasing levels of inequality between different sectors of society. Working with existing NGO’s & organisations on the ground in Cochin, we aim to empower communities by providing relevant training in life-skill development, vocational training including training in IT literacy, access to sports activities & an improved learning environment.

Many complex issues still persist in Kerala surrounding gender equality and equal access to quality education for different sectors of society. Women, young people, rural students and those with special educational needs face various different challenges when it comes to accessing employment and vocational training that could lead to a sustainable livelihood, for example.

Our programmes support, empower and increase employment opportunities for women, students, and marginalised people in Kerala. We do this by promoting and supporting gender equality initiatives, improving dynamic learning and teaching environments, and providing support to local educational institutions so that they can provide better and more equal access to quality education and vocational training.

We aim to leave our partners with the skills, resources & confidence they need to continue working towards their own goals & objectives for development. Supporting women, students & young adults in developing their own resources for life skills development, seeking & securing employment, increasing their emotional & physical well-being, we hope to empower future generations. Placing our focus on training over funding, we can equip communities with the tools they need to create lasting change.
