Empowering youth... Transforming lives… Making a Difference…

Thanks to the generous people who believe our project is progressing positively and for helping out our youth in grading themselves as skilled trainees.

Rural and Semi urban Youth communities, after completion of their school final they tend to go for labour work or any other daily wage work. Due to our intervention among the youth communities about skill education programme and acquiring employable skill development, they are intended to go for skill and vocational education.

Besides, SPPD implements Noon Lunch aid to the campus students who are hailing from rural and semi urban areas, with support of “Global Giving”. Travelling Allowance is also being provided to the students. These kinds of support would help them to avoid regular attendance with any dropouts and will lead them for good settlement in the right employment.

True Story :

As though in the hardship, she tried her best to support his son education along with his father’s medical treatment. Day by day, the circumstances seem to be worsening. On that particular situation, SPPD team advice, which on the contrary diverted his interest towards pursuing a skill, and the opportunities that are available just at his reach.

“I am thankful to the people supporting this programme, and the opportunity it has given me for training. In a couple of months, I will be a certified trainee, with which I can seek my career in prestigious hotels. Wherever I am in life I will remember the education I have obtained from this training here – I will hold onto it.”

We are grateful to all our donors who have accompanied us in this journey by contributing their hard-earned money in supporting these youth to acquire skills.

True story

Manivasagam’s father passed away when he was three years old. Her mother is working as a labour for a daily wages. His sister is in grade 9. His mother is the breadwinner of the family. Due to financial short comes; Manivasagam was demanded for early employment to support the family. In spite of their hardships his mother was interested in educating her kids.

“I was very interested in pursuing Hospitality Course but the only drawback was the distance from my residence to the institution which I felt will be an added burden to my parent. The orientation given by SPPD team, “Earn while you study” had drawn my interest to this institution, and now I’m pursuing Hospitality Course.

I’m thankful to the donors for their support. The free lunch, travelling allowance and educational material support offered has considerably lessened a part of the educational expenses to be met out by me,” says Manivasagam.

The students have returned back from their training, the wonderful exposure makes them to feel very useful and important and through these experiences they could get placements in their star hotels. Enthusiastically prepared and seated for examinations and is going on......

The students, who are getting education through us, are the youth stopped their education due to the poverty stricken condition of their family and unawareness of uneducated, alcoholic addicted parents. Vision of SPPD is to help those poor students by giving training in skill oriented work and educated by breaking all the obstacles such as mid day Meal, Travelling expenses, Uniforms, inner wears, Note books, Books and other study materials.

SPPD made it happen by the generous support of GlobalGiving. Many thanks for the generous donors.

His brother, who was average in studies, under took a part time job in road side hotel due to his poverty, though not professionally trained, at quite an early age and now owns a small road side hotel.

Testimony from Vinoth

“After my schooling, I was totally confused that what course I shall pursue. On that period, SPPD team has given knowledge for the rural youth who doesn’t have much exposure about the education, to select which course will be suitable to get rid of poverty and it helps me to choose the Hospitality Course. My aim in life is to work on luxury cruise. Being formally trained at a Caterer I believe it will help me achieve my goal. I am thankful to all those who are supporting this programme, and the opportunity they have given me for pursuing a skill.” 

As a part of their regular curriculum, he was also sent for his internship programme at Hotel Thaai Residency Coimbatore, which had served as a learning platform to help him improve his cooking skills.


From our side we are continuing to support poor, less educated and out of school youth who are victims of many unfortunate circumstances by offering them an opportunity in skill training in the field of hospitality to enable them become self-reliant.

The passport to success is vocational skill and technical training capability. Vocational training programs in rural areas appear most successful in terms of enhancing employability and contributing to the human development.

About Jeevakar -:

Jeevakar was born in sittilarai village near thuraiyur district on 03/06/1999. When he was at the age of 3 he lost his father in a road accident. After that his mother took care of him and his brother, she suffered a lot in surviving. She managed the growth of their children by doing agriculture in a small farm which they own by themselves in a nearby village. At the age of six jeevakar lost his mother too, since she had suffered under severe health issues.

After losing the parents they were taken by their grandmother, his grandmother was a cook who work under daily wages of 150/- per day. By using the daily wages, she helped the growth of the children who doesn’t have any support after losing their parents.

Jeevakar did his schooling upto 5th Std in a good school in sittilarai village. He continued the studies up to 12th std in a government school in thuraiyur his grandmother suffered a lot in spending for his education. But the will power of his grandmother and the full effort made by him helps him to beat the poverty and he completed his 12 std successfully. His grandmother had got a loan from a private sector and she utilized that loan for his brother’s education also.

After completing 12th std Jeeva decided to discontinue his studies due to his poverty, but after getting councelling from a tutor of SPPD (Society of poor people development).

He decided to continue his higher studies. Our team from skilled training programme went to that village to give awareness about the hotel management to the students. By seeing him they told the benefits, facilities and features of the hotel management course to Jeevakar. By hearing all about wisdom academy he decide to start his course at skilled training center.

The benefits made him to become hotelier-:

Nowadays the students from poor family background are dropping the dream of higher studies because of the term fees, afternoon lunch, travelling expenses and uniform fees etc, even though they are struggling for their basic needs. In order to defend those barriers for the students from below poverty line, skilled training programme offer them so much of benefits, in which the part of the amount can be paid as a term fees initially where the rest can be paid at the training period by the stipend amount which he will get it from the hotel. College also provides free meals, travelling expenses, uniforms and books.

By getting these benefits jeevakar started his carrier in skilled training center, he performed well and he went for his industrial exposure training for six months to a leading star hotel in kerala.he earned a stipend of Rs. 6000 per month which he utilized that money for his brother’s education. He completed his first year of education and training successfully and now by earning in his second internship training he is fulfilling his all basic needs by himself.

Jeevakar from his own words-:

After completing my 12th std I don’t think it’s possible to continue my higher studies. In that situation, I found skilled training programme is a boon that was given to me by god. It helps me a lot in different ways to become a successful man in this competitive world. All my dreams came true because of SPPD.

Thanks to SPPD.
