Livelihood & Development activities for leprosy affected youths

There are large numbers of leprosy colonies in Madhya Pradesh those are forced to live alone for years away from the city. Those who had this disease lived their life in some way, but their children are still becoming victims of social discrimination. Therefore, we are working to add such leprosy affected youth to merge them in the mainstream of the society. The organization has been working for the last 11 years in for their skill development, self-employment, education, capacity building and personality development. Under this program, we are providing training and handholding support to the affected youth on agricultural activities, fisheries, handicrafts and handloom development along with technical training. The organization is working continuously in more than 20 leprosy colonies of 15 districts of Madhya Pradesh
