The Youth represent the hope and future of a country. They have a vital role to play with regard for fostering and strengthening of social consciousness against all social evils and lead the country to unity and prosperity. The immense resources of youth, if galvanized, can work as a major force of socio-economic change. It is therefore needed to create increasing opportunities for them to develop their personality and their functional capacity and thus make them economically productive and socially responsible.
With this view in mind Empowerment has given shape to Youth Welfare Programmes. Empowerment holds the serious responsibility of creating material situation and empowering the youth along with his/her mental, aesthetic, artistic and physical development. It gives more importance to the development of a whole society through the development of every single person. It conducts English Speaking Programmes, Workshops on fine arts, dance, theatre, training in vocational programmes etc. The programme runs throughout the year for the youths.
Many villages throughout India are oceans of poverty and illiteracy. The influx of technology, commerce, education and metropolitanism that has flooded most of India’s cities since independence seems to have not even touched these villages. They exist as they did centuries ago. However, one crucial change has occurred. Now, basic education and marketable skills are absolute necessities in order to subsist in even the smallest communities. Hence, those who lack this education and training go to sleep hungry each night.
In the midst of this ocean of destitution, there are islands of light, islands of knowledge, islands of hope. The Y.E.S. schools are some of these islands. Arunodaya Trust believes that children are the future of our planet and that it is our responsibility to help them make that future a bright one. Arunodaya Trust dedicated to bringing education to the illiterate, training to the unemployable and light to the darkness. The YES program is dedicated to giving poor and disadvantaged children an alternative to begging and to providing them with the best chance possible to live a life free from destitution.
