ENACTUS SRCASW has taken up projects: Project Pehchaan and Poshan.

Project Pehchaan & Poshan deals with the upliftment and empowerment of the third gender. The aim is to facilitate self dependency among the prejudiced section of the society. We aim to make the third gender group employable by imparting them the necessary skills. We have identified a group of transgenders who are interested in changing their lives. Project can be divided into following programs :

  • Skill Development Program - Under this program the identified group will be called for a 4 hour training session twice a week. In this program the transgenders will be given holistic training. Sessions will begin with meditation and Yoga followed by a session on Language training and Personality Development. This will be followed by a skill development which will include learning basic cooking techniques including food preservation and stitching techniques. These techniques will help them to create employability.
  • Employment Opportunities : The college will also give employment opportunity. The college will be recruiting a guard from the targeted community.
  • Organic Farming(Self Employment) : College will provide land to the targeted group. They will be taught on basic farming skills. The affected group can then grow organic vegetables and sell them and earn.
