Welcome to Avacayam, Our Disability Livelihood Program
What an exciting time it has been in Pune. With Dr. Jasmine Gogia's support, we have been conducting the Avacayam Program in Pune for 2 years. In 2017 we, with Suzlon, started our search for organizations in Pune. After months of research we chose 6 organizations to be a part of our program.
In these 2 years our work with - Aarambh Foundation, Navshitij, Nityanand Rehabilitation Center (Katraj), Nityanand (Pachane), Schizophrenia Awareness Association (SAA), Support All Abled Differently (SaaD) has been fruitful.
Our team travelled to Pune once a month to train the organization personnel in products made from flowers and Entrepreneurial development.
Due to the keen interest shown by Dr. Jasmine Gogia (CSR Head, Suzlon Foundation) organizing stalls during festive occasions helped build and develop skills in marketing and sales.
Society for Child Development’s Trash to Cash employment program initiative under the banner of Avacayam Naturals powered by Suzlon foundation has completed its 2 year program with success.
The organizations in Pune connected with the program have taken the work forward ....
“It has been a very good experience to transfer our learning to a new group of organizations in a new location. The very basis of our work was tested, that is, our strategy of reaching out to people with disability through the organizations they are associated with. happy in the feeling that we succeeded."
