NGO Profile :
Sree Guruvayurappan Bhajan Samaj Trusts (SGBS) main objectives are vocational training (Unnati), promoting arts & culture (Utsav), education assistance (Shiksha), and providing funeral services (Samstha). It is supported by a number of corporates and individuals.

Their activities include:

  • Unnati: This program provides vocational and life skills training, and guaranteed jobs to underprivileged youth through a well-organised and structured program spanning 50 days. The program is divided into 3 units: a) Learn: Empower underprivileged youth with necessary skills; b) Earn: Provide youth with sustainable jobs at the end of the training; c) Stand Tall: Provide youth with self-confidence, value systems and soft skills that enable them to become better citizens and better prepared for day-to-day challenges. Due to the success of the Unnati center in Bangalore, 32 such centers were opened across India. So far, over 24,000 underprivileged young men and women have benefitted. The Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs (IICA) recognized Unnati as a “Partner in Excellence”. This recognition was awarded to Unnati for its effectiveness in implementing the IICA Certified Program in CSR.
  • Utsav: The program aims at preserving Indian traditions and promoting arts and culture through music, dance, spiritual discourses and devotional music. Under this, SGBS organizes concerts to promote budding musicians and renowned artists perform at these events. The concerts help raising funds for the Trust’s activities as well. Around 2,500-3,000 families participate yearly.
  • Shiksha: The primary objective of this program is ‘education for all’. It focuses on students from economically weaker sections, and ensures they are given support for their school fees and education expenses. The program has supported education of 621 students (279 girls and 342 boys), and has helped many students who would otherwise have discontinued their studies due to financial constraints. SGBS staff also counsels children to focus on studies and encourages them to take part in extra-curricular activities.

Samstha: This program offers help to families at the time of bereavement with funeral services and facilities to conduct the last rites of the departed soul. The Trust facilitated over 300 families in FY 2017-18.
