Challenge

SM youth center addresses urban youth challenges like gender-based violence and social tensions, enhancing coping mechanisms and life skills. It promotes resilience through yoga, mindfulness, and meditation, reducing violence. Education on gender-based violence and extremism prevention improves safety. Collaborative efforts with parents, and caregivers bolster support networks, nurturing positive youth development. This project equips youth with vital skills for thriving despite challenges.

Solution

Shanthi Maargam is currently facing funding challenges that impact our ability to sustain community services in the short term. This microproject aims to alleviate these challenges through short-term fundraising to ensure ensuring continued support and service delivery to the community. Ultimately, the project empowers vulnerable youth with essential skills for healthy, productive lives amid adversity.

Long-Term Impact

By healing the emotional traumas of vulnerable children and youth while using a youth development approach, we can help them find deeper levels of peace and resilience, and in the long-term learn to break the cycle of violence in their families and communities while and developing inter-faith harmony which our country so badly needs.
