One-Day Camp for Rural Youth at Doddaballapur


Youth are our power. The future lies in their hands. The rural youth may not be so privileged like the city youths. They may lack the modern language skills. However, given the opportunities they can master it all; because they have faith and dreams. Realising their potentials and their desire to come up in life, we, the Claretian Missionaries, with the collaboration from Holistic Child Development Programme organised "One-Day Camp" on 16 February 2019 for the rural youth of Doddaballapur. There were 67 boys and girls who benefited from the program. Our motive is to bring out potentialities, dreams, desires and aspirations from the youth and to direct them to the proper channel; that they become better citizens. 

After the prayer and introductory session by Fr. Chacko Kelamparampil CMF, Mr Harish from SDB Bangalore briefed the participants on education and various job opportunities for the youth. The resource persons Guna and Rachana gave guidance and counselling on how to become useful citizens. They highlighted the value of determination and hard work.

In the later sessions, Fr. Chacko guided the youth through some challenging questions like: How many people from your village are government employees? How many are working abroad? How many are in the political field? These were challenging questions for the youths to make use of wider range of opportunities available to them in India and abroad to come up in life and make life better for themselves and the society at large.

The youth were further inspired to form small groups to do something for the welfare of their own villages through internal support. The youth were happy because they were challenged. From our part, we have decided to support the youth through education, training and ways to build better future. For the organizers it was encouraging to have youth who are disciplined, enthusiastic and full of dreams. The youth themselves were very happy about the well-arranged seminar. We are happy that our efforts to form a better society through training of youth is taken positively.
