Shakti’17 – Women Empowerment Programme


“Give me good mothers…I shall give you a great nation.”, said Napolean.  Swami Vivekananda saw the neglect of women and masses as the major reasons for our nations downfall. In spite of the improvement in the status of women in society seen at present, the erosion of values that is plaguing the nation in general has also affected women.

On the occasion of 150th Birth Anniversary of Sister Nivedita who dedicated her life for the upliftment & empowerment of women of India, we are organizing “Shakti” – a full day programme exclusively for girls on the theme, “Contemporary Women – Issues & Challenges”.  We are planning to have an interaction with important women leaders who have brought about a change in the society through their efforts in their respective fields. This will give the participants a unique platform to interact with and learn from the experience of leaders.

We would like to invite all the interested students and women to participate in this unique programme and enjoy a rewarding experience.

National Youth Day Celebration 2017


The Government of India in 1984, decided to observe the birthday of Swami Vivekananda, the Maker of Modern India, on 12th January as National youth Day every year from 1985 onwards. In its communication, the govt. of India stated: “It was felt that the philosophy of Swamiji and the ideals for which he lived and worked could be a great source of inspiration for the Indian youth.’

India has the world’s largest youth population and every third person in India is a youth. This makes our nation the land of opportunities and immense possibilities, for youths are the future of our nation. National Youth day is an occasion where in the youths renew their pledge towards building a strong and resurgent nation.

To celebrate this occasion, we invite all the interested youths to participate in the programme being organized on 12th January in our Ashrama.

We shall also be distributing 6500 pairs of clothes to poor & destitute of about 30 villages in Dakshina Kannada Dist. “Arpana” is an attempt to reach out to poor with the aim of serving God in poor. This noble service will be flagged off on that day by symbolically distribution among the beneficiaries.
