We at VIVAN believe that good education is crucial to build an equitable, humane and sustainable society. We want to contribute significantly towards improvement of education in India, and through that towards building a better society.
As part of our efforts in that direction, we have taken girl child’s education as a priority requirement and at this point of time.
VIVAN has charted out a program LAYA (Life And Your Aspirations)program, as a part of our CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activity:
LAYA as word in language Telugu stands for "Rhythm".
This process of LAYA, is to bring out the "Rhythm" in the life of a deprived children by creating a pattern of life for them, and make them feel wanted like any other children and give a fair choice to live the life.
LAYA is an effort, which makes itself sustainable process to an underprivileged child till we get the result, here in this we adopt a child who is an orphan, at tender age and bear their lively wood and educational expenditure completely, till they secure respectable job in later part, matching his/her capabilities and calibre, become independent and sustainable to lead a respectable citizen's life in this country.
Aim of LAYA is not to redistribute the resources in an idealistic, utopian concept, which is unrealistic and unattainable. We believe that the solution lies in empowering the deprived / under privileged to realize their latent potential in order to reduce the inequality, and become self sufficient in their own way and lead a respectable life, there by achieving their aspirations.
VIVAN has been collaborated with NANHI KALLI a Project jointly managed byK.C Mahindra Foundation Trust and Naandi Foundation
Project Nanhi Kali was initiated in 1996 by the K C Mahindra Education Trust (KCMET) with the aim of providing primary education to underprivileged girl children in India.
