ABOUT

Alamba Charitable Trust

ACT believes in promoting gender equality and spreading joy through various charitable activities.

Alamba Trust was started in 2005 and has touched over 3000 lives. ACT propagates equality through ensuring equal opportunities for women, children, disabled and the underprivileged. Alamba aims to bring change through individual initiatives and the same idea reflects on our work as an organisation. Collectively, a nation can actively work towards bridging socio-economic disparities. ACT encourages individuals to do their bit for the ones in need as it helps narrow gaps and by responsibly contributing one's time and energy towards a social cause it can uplift and empower large sections of our society. At Alamba we strive to provide children with basic necessities such as food, shelter, hygiene and education. We look after the marginalised sections who do not have access to basic resources by ensuring that we provide them with the same.



OUR VISION

In a country like India where unequal distribution of wealth and resources happens to be a major problem, a life of dignity and security for all is often compromised. Hope, tolerance, social justice, equality and eradication of poverty are steps towards a better and advanced nation. ACT's pursuit is to bring about a change through small, independent steps through which all of these goals shall be achievable.

OUR MISSION

To enable and care for the underprivileged by providing them with a basic standard of living. We aim at equity and equality by ensuring promotion of social justice and fairness. ACT's mission is to eradicate the constraints that hold us back as a society from growing and developing into a society that is equal, fair and just.

DIVYA JYOTHI

In this program Alamba Charitable Trust understood a great need for Residential Skill training for their livelihood.

We reach the remote villages in Karnataka at panchayath level, mobilize and identify the youth with disability (Male and Female) their families to sensitize for their livelihood.

Their families are not financially capable to support these youth for their future, hence they go disappointed and finally fall into moral failures and disastrous activities. To get job opportunities and help them for a dignified life in the society; We give life orientation skills, independent and interdependency skill and Job linked Skill training: basic computer, English communication, Retail Management, moral discipline, life orientated counseling etc...

After completing the training we make sure their job opportunity and place them to earn a living, starting from a monthly salary of Rs.7000/- and above. Once they start working and a salary comes to their hands they become confident, financially supporting their families and responsible to lead a serious and respectful life in the family and also the society.

Alamba Stands unique by Post placement support for retention in job. Also we create a platform for workplace issues between employees and employers. Employed Youth with disabilities are given training in financial management, disciplined way of living. We provide them food and accommodation and even basic medical support till they are financially strengthen.
