WE CARE
For Children, Women & Senior Citizens

WE CARE is a campaign which focuses on the rights, issues and empowerment of children, women and senior citizens. It consists of awareness and outreach initiatives to address relevant issues at the time, and seeks to stimulate creative discussions for holistic solutions.

CARE for Children

A 2-Day upavasam and ‘Jagratha Sangamam’ was organised at Sree Vadakkumnatha Temple Ground in Thrissur in January 2013, to raise awareness about the issues faced by children. In the context of increasing child abuse in Kerala, the campaign gave a call to ensure safety for children at home and in the society.
