Protection and Development Program for Children
Child Rights and development have been one of the core areas of our interventions.
Kerala being one of the States where the instances of child abuse and violation of child rights are high, Adhwana has a vision to development institutions and programs to protect the rights of all children and work for their development.
Program for women / youth empowerment
Micro-Enterprenuership Development being an important program for women / youth empowerment, Adhwana has deep understanding about its linkages with skill development, marketing, customer relations, soft skills development and micro-finance.
Our future is focused on this area.
Income Generation Program
GoatsNet is an income generation program for women empowerment.
With Rs.15,000/-, a poor woman in rural areas will be supported to purchase a she-goat and construct a cage. The receiver will rear the goat and will return a she-goat from its first offsprings. This she-goat will be given to another poor woman who in her turn will do the same. Every year one more poor woman will be supported with a goat.
Goat rearing is profitable activity in Kerala. Goat meat and milk have additional medicinal content and highly nutritious.
The project targets, in the beginning, 100 woman. The total cost is Rs.15 Lakhs ( Euro 17,045.) including remuneration for a social worker and administrative expenses.
This is a sustaianble program which will be extended to another 100 woman per year with the same investment. From next year, the first woman will earn a minimum of Rs.5,000/- from one goat. The income will be multiplied according to the number of goats she adds year by year.
Individuals and Organizations can become a partner and start with Rs.15,000/- a year for one year or more years.
Waste Management in Coastal Villages
Waste management in coastal villages is one area in which Adhwana is specially interested. We have planned integrated programs and campaigns to intervene in the most fragile areas along the coast.
We are waiting for networks and partners to continue our invovlement. The search is on strongly in this regard.
