Channelizing of Youth Vertical:

With a rapidly evolving economic and social fabric, India is fast forwarding itself through the 21st Century where despite increases in income levels the gap between the 'haves' and the 'have-nots' has also increased. It is thus imperative that youth come forward in greater numbers to reach out to the marginalised sections of to provide succour and relief - helping people to live lives of dignity and honour.

The act of giving back to society from an early stage of their life, and in the process evolving into a finer, sensitive and caring individual and human beings is at the very heart of Kalyani's work and thus we see Kalyani:

  1. Establishing and Motivating a strong student wing to channelize youth interest in doing care for society work. Students and young volunteers of the foundation undertake various kinds of social welfare projects such as Blood Donation Camps, Dental, Eye and Health Check-up camps for the underprivileged, Workshops for children at correctional institutions, Empowerment and Awareness Projects for Women, World Day Celebrations with disabled and mentally challenged people, teaching underprivileged children, etc. Since the process of undertaking such activities is also crucial which should result in the development of work skills, management skills and leadership skills, Kalyani's student volunteer group is being driven through 'Kalyani Youth Leadership Forum'.
  2. Imparting Education and Vocational Training to underprivileged and un-channelized youth. This includes:
  • Scholarships for needy students
  • Vocational Skill Training to underprivileged youth
