These programs include vocational training designed to prepare individuals for a variety of work environments. All of the programs are developed in collaboration with a Business Advisory Council so that they meet the needs of today’s businesses and are taught by caring, well trained staff who work closely with the participants. Mock interviews are also conducted during the training period to strengthen presentation skills for the interview process.
Empathy Foundation constantly strives to support and empower individuals, particularly underprivileged children enabling them to meet basic ambitions of their life and realize their potential, make informed choices, resist oppression, fight for rightful existence and facilitate new possibilities and opportunities for them.
The Foundation takes up individual cases based on their immediate needs. These individuals are then given educational support, in individual capacity, who are at risk of discontinuing their studies due to impoverished circumstances and have exhibited outstanding academic record. Individuals suffering from any critical diseases are provided support for their health; specific cases are also taken for rehabilitation wherein they are given educational support, vocational training, entrepreneurship training, counseling and provision for aids and appliances.
Support for education and health is also provided to recognize those children who have performed outstanding deeds of bravery and selfless sacrifices including bravery award winners.
