Happy youth in the midst of Pandemic

The reporting period of the three months of March to May 2021 unfortunately happened to be the period of heavy spread of Covid19 in its more ferocious second wave here in our region.

There was a big dip in the number of admissions in various vocational skill courses. The skills required in the tourism and hospitality sector have been the most preferred courses of youth in our working areas. This sector of tourism and the hospitality industry were the worst hit during the pandemic times and the drop in the new admissions the courses concerned.

And all the students undergoing various courses had gone on internship in different places such as Bangalore, Coimbatore, Ooty and Chennai. They were undergoing their internships in the reputed hotels, resorts and restaurants. A few of those who had completed the courses earlier had also been absorbed by the establishments in which they had undergone internship this year. This would not have been possible but for the kind help of GlobalGiving.

And these internees had returned from their work places due to the onset of the second wave of corona pandemic since the month of March. During the period sensitization were carried out among the youth who form part of the GlobalGiving project through tele-calling bulk messaging on the protective measures such as wearing masks, social distancing and vaccination wherever possible.

This apart, SPPD took the initiative of building confidence in the minds of both the current students who are part of the project and other youth in general here on the need for keeping themselves well equipped in the skills to be fit for the job market in the post pandemic times. This is because there was a general depression among the youth on the future as the covid19 pandemic has been ravaging the livelihood of the people all over.

Hence, we focused more on counseling them through instilling confidence in their minds that once the pandemic is over there would a brighter future for those who are properly trained in various skills. This apart, the younger children in the families of those who happen to be siblings who form part this project are given the nutritional food supplement kit every month sponsored by the online platform of Give India.  

On concluding this report, we again thank the GlobalGiving and the individual donors who are associated with the organization for helping the youth towards ensuring their future.
