Pre-vocational and vocational training !

What is New !

Sr. Aleena RodriguesA vocational unit  started at Snehanilayam on a small scale in 1991 and the prevocational in 2003. The prevocational unit was set up with the objective of training the children prior to the entry to the vocational unit. In the prevocational section,there are two units functioning ; home science and  home management. At home science section they make pickles, juices, liquid soap, disinfectant etc., and these are sold to the local public and outside. At home management, they are trained in paper bag making, jewellery, decorations etc. An exclusive unit for paper bag making and recycling of paper is in the anvil which would hopefully generate a small income for our children.

The main skills identified and utilized at the Vocational training unit are carpentry, carving, enamel painting,  pot decoration etc. There are 24 children working in the unit. A separate building annex is set apart for this purpose. The main products from the unit are educational aid materials for Kindergarten and Nursery schools, wall decorations, and gift items such as pen holders, table mats, napkin holders, key chains, key holders, wall hangings, decorative jars and bottles and a variety of other items. To support the sale promotion of the products, an exhibition cum sale is being organized every year since the last two years. The age group of the mentally challenged in the vocational unit is between 18 and 35 and the small earning from this unit is being distributed to these children which is a great motivation and acknowledgement of their skills.

The Institution is registered as a Charitable Society under the Travencore Cochin Literary, Scientific Charitible Societies Registration Act 1955 vide order PR 176/77 dated 14-07-1977, Govt. of India.
