With the support of government funding, we run literacy and vocational training programs serving the poorest tribal communities in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Historically, the tribal population has been exploited by merchants because they are illiterate and haven’t learned basic arithmetic. By providing adult education, our program aims to help the tribal population achieve fair trade opportunities. More than 100 courses in various occupations are offered, with a special focus on traditional art forms which are in danger of being forgotten by the younger generation. Graduates receive assistance in learning how to market and distribute their products through suitable outlets.
In 2008, Embracing the World’s project in Sivakasi, Tamil Nadu won the UNESCO / NLM National Award for being the most effective and efficient administrator of adult education funds in India.
Amma offers us the possibility to connect online with her on a daily basis. During these livestreams, we can meditate with Amma, chant bhajans (devotional singing) and hear spiritual teachings.
