KarmMarg is essentially a home for children, one that provides them a safe refuge, a family-like atmosphere and opportunities for education, skill development and employment. Our main spheres of work are –
- The running of the home, maintaining a safe environment and providing hygienic facilities to an average of 60 children of all ages, including six special children.
- Providing skills and income generation programmes for the children and alumni of KarmMarg, as well as for the women who live in villages nearby. Over 100 alumni presently hold different jobs – some in offices, some with their own business and some working for KarmMarg and Jugaad. At Jugaad, over 200 village women have been trained so far. Presently, 70 women are employed there.
- Conducting training programmes for other NGOs. In the past, KarmMarg has provided training in stitching, recycling cotton textiles and stationery production to groups from Jamghat (Delhi), Vidya(Ahmadabad), Tanal (Kerala) and Shikshantar (Udaipur).
- Conducting and participating in programmes that sensitize people to issues relating to children at risk.
