Sevabharathi Kishori Vikas nirvahak / volunteers training Programme

Sunday 18th Sept
Hyderabad

72 Kishori Vikas nirvahaks (Female volunteers) were trained in Cornea blindness awareness programme. 

Saksham in association with Sevabharathi Telangana organised a Cornea donation / Netradana Awareness Programme at Vaidehi Ashram, Saidabad.

The “Kishori Vikas Center” is where the volunteer organizes the teenage girls daily for 2 hours at any of the local community center or nearby locality. The teenage girls, 11-18 years are trained in basic things like information and skills that enable them towards self reliance. This particular age group gets awareness to the world and they would go on to design their future. Hence it is the right age group to give vocational skills, information and Sanskaras.

It is the flame to better the society that makes up a kishori volunteer. Seva Bharathi provides a small and humble honorarium that helps them pay their college fee and trips to centers. The volunteer is basically a junior or degree college student and is trained to run these Kendras.
Thanks to these volunteers today there are 123 Kishori centers with an average attendance of 25 bettering the lives of the young women.
