Claret Youth Centre of Surepalli continues to train the youth

Mar 2, 2021 | Bangalore, Youth & Vocations Ministry

Bangalore, India. The Claret Youth Centre in Surepalli, Province of Bangalore, has been supporting the local poor unemployed youth and women since its foundation. For three years now, a regular vocational training programme has been organized at the center. So far, hundreds of women have been trained in tailoring and have been provided with sewing machines free of cost. Young people have also been trained in electrical work and in music, specifically in playing the drum, a traditional tribal musical instrument of the area.

In February 2021, the second drum music training group completed the four-month course. A colorful closing ceremony and distribution of certificates was held on 20 February. Local officials were also present during the ceremony. Many of the trainees shared how the training has enabled them to find a livelihood and support for their families. They also expressed their gratitude that the training has helped them to value their traditional music and to pass it on to the next generation. The center acknowledges with gratitude the generous contributions of the local agencies in this noble work of empowering youth and women.
