Inaugurated by our revered master Anandmurti Gurumaa on 15th August 2005 , ‘Shakti Udaan Kendra’ at Kaithal is the flagship vocational training institute . It is a humble effort initiated by us, aimed at giving a new direction to the under-privileged girls by providing free coaching to them in various useful for their day to day lives:-
These courses are such as :
-Tailoring and Stitching
-Professional Mehndi Designing, beauty, hair and various make-up courses
Along with free coaching, the students are also provided with course material free of charge. Since its inception in September of 2007, more than 2000 girls have receivedÂ vocational training at the institute. Currently, the batch of 315 girls is undergoing training in various courses. The girls who are pursuing these courses fall below poverty line . The girls not only acquire necessary skills , but also gain immense confidence moving toward a life of self-reliance . Many of the girls who have received training at the institute have begun home based work and are already earning a decent living for their entire family. Shakti feels very encouraged to see their lives transformed and brightened.
Free distribution of books and uniform to school girls in rural areas
The main Objectives of distribution of books and uniforms are:
-To enable all children up to the age of 14 yrs to have free and compulsory education.
-To retain the children enrolled in the schools until compulsory stage.
-To bring equality among all children in the schools.
Recently ‘Save The Girl Child’ campaign has been started to curb the gender-selective abortion of female foetuses which has skewed the sex-ratio . This has resulted in significant under-representation of girls in some areas. The “Beti Bachao” campaign is supported by various Human Rights groups, Non-Governmental Organizations, and all State and local governments in India.
