On 18th march 2018, AMMACHI Labs and Social work students from our Center for Women’s Empowerment & Gender Equality organized “Valaramkunnu Gramotsavam” at Valaramkunnu, a tribal village located at Wayanad district, Kerala. The program was organised for three tribal settlements namely Paniya colony, Kattupara nayakar colony and Kuruchur colony. Panchayat president P. Thangamani inaugurated the program and Panchayat member U.V Chacko did the welcome address.
AMMACHI Labs team members, faculty and students from CWE&GE are leading #skilldevelopment sessions and various awareness programs on #education, #sanitation, #alcoholism and #childmarriage among the tribal population in Valaramkunnu. Apart from this, students are also engaged in academic and research activities in the tribal community and the outcome is expected to bring significant findings and recommendations for overall development of the Valaramkunnu community. The one month long camp will conclude in the last week of March.
