Industry Oriented Training

We are very delighted to report the successful progress of the initiative taken by ISKCON Prayagraj to establish a Youth Welfare Centre at Varanasi to expand its mission of supporting academic education, skill development & healthy food to needy students at Varanasi, India. Equipped with all modern amenities, the center will cater to the children of poor laborers in the local region.

Young Indians today are grappling with anxiety, loneliness, depression & unhealthy habits. Over the last five years, more than 40,000 students committed suicide in India. Lack of value education and over-emphasis by our society on external success are two main reasons for depression among students. Youths need proper career counseling, a healthy lifestyle, and most importantly - character education.

To facilitate this we have organized many online seminars and counseling sessions over last year to help the students.

350 students have been provided counseling for JEE Main / Advanced. 450 students attended the online seminar "Benefits of Living a Healthy Lifestyle" last year.

This quarter We conducted a 45 days "Industry Oriented Training Bootcamp" for students to secure a bright career in cutting edge technologies. This provided them good hands on tech stacks along with many interpersonal skills. This Bootcamp was attended by 65 students in month of Janurary. We had rented a hotel and seminar hall to accommodate students and provide for proper foodings.

We are very thankful to our donors, experts from different fields to join us, and volunteers who helped us to reach out and help more and more youths to shape their life and career.

CURE THEIR HUNGER

We are delighted to report the success of the initiative taken by ISKCON Prayagraj to help the poor and orphans.

With the outbreak of COVID-19, the economy of the world has drastically declined. In under-developed areas like ours, orphans and needy people are put in difficulty, in a struggle for basic elements of life. As a part of our national project "Food for Life", our team at ISKCON India will be supporting the local orphanages in feeding the much needed nutritious food to orphanage kids and nearby villagers in the city of Varanasi, India.

Being a non-profit organization, the only source of revenue for the orphanage is the donations from local people. During this time of difficulty, the donations to the orphanage have drastically declined, thus putting the children, staff & the nearby villagers in urgent need of support.

The orphanage has 55 children, teachers & employees who are completely dependent on the orphanage for their food, shelter, clothing, and other needs. We also provided Hygiene kits & Bath kits to the children, teachers, and employees along with providing nutritious food to them.

Leading our team, our friend Suneel shares his experience "It was very heart touching for me meet the orphans, serve them. It also reminded me of how fortunate I am to have parents. I am also grateful to the caretakers here and supporters to help these children."

We are very thankful for all our generous donors and brave volunteers and local administration for their valuable support in this time of dire need when all needed you.

We are delighted to report about the successful progress of our initiative to provide hygienic food and care to students at our  Gurukul.

We have a gurukul where 50 students along with 3 teachers and 5 employees reside. Before the global crisis, we used to get donations from local sources to run our gurukul and provide quality food and education to our students. But due to the outbreak of Covid-19 the income and donations have become nill. We are very thankful to all of you for helping us in this mission to provide Vedic education to students to build their character. 

All Students are very happily residing and getting their education to lead a valuable and character-centered lifestyle. We are providing 3 times full hygienic meal to 50 students, 3 teachers, and 5 employees residing in our gurukul. they were also provided with a hygienic kit. 

We are very thankful to all our generous donors who come forward and helped us in this valuable and noble mission. Their valuable support in this time of dire need is highly appreciated and we are grateful to them.
