A registered NGO, working to provide soul care for underprivileged special needs individuals through curative education & healing care
Arvind Foundation strongly believes that we can give our students a holistic education, helping them grow just like any other kid in a natural environment, by paying closer attention to them. We introduce and encourage children to climb the ladder to a stage where they are independent and are confident to take up and execute work. The special young adolescent and adult members of our family are engaged in various vocational training - basics of computers, culinary art & catering, grinding & packing and office administration, carpentry, pottery, farming, gardening, weaving, tailoring, jewelry making, using office appliances & other skills such as making products from Areca Nut leaves (plates, etc.) & making cooking masalas. The purpose is to make them find a living. We have recently initiated a livelihood program for our special needs young adults where we market and sell the products made/packed by them as part of their training. Our students make close to 40 products. They are given stipends for their efforts as part of this program.
The products kept for sale are -
Areca products (different sizes of plates n bowls)
14 different Masala spice powders (garam masala, garlic dhall powder, ghee dhall powder, idly molaga podi, sambhar podi, rasam podi, karuvepillai podi, chilli powder, coriander powder, jeera powder, rice flour...
