A Brief About UVCT
The Urivi Vikram Charitable Trust (UVCT), established in the year 1991, is a Non-Governmental and non profiteering Organization which works for the social and economic empowerment of the young adults aged 13-21 years. UVCT’s priority target group comprises of school-going children, drop-outs and under-achievers. UVCT has a motto of finding ways and means to transform the country’s ‘Burden of Population’ into an ‘Asset of Human Resources’, through a process of empowerment, rather than of control.
Its Chapters are functioning in various states such as Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, Karnataka, and Maharastra, besides Delhi. The Trust rightly visualizes that due care must be given to the rapid development and solving the identity crisis in an adolescent’s growth.
The Efforts of the UVCT contributed in setting up of a Sub-group by the Planning Commission on Welfare and Development of Adolescents and another Sub-group by the ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, to draw programmes for adolescents, for inclusion in the 10th Five-Year Plan (2002-2007).
UVCT was an active participant in both the sub-groups.
Main objectives of the trust:
Developing general awareness through seminars, group discussions and camps to help youth find solutions to their psychological, financial, ethical and social problems ; and to help acquire a realistic value system that is conducive to the development of a healthy society;
Developing educational and skill training programs for school dropouts, to enable them to become socially and economically productive citizens of the country;
Developing the concept of oneness of all religions and love for the homeland in youth, by raising their level of consciousness;
Developing counseling centers for disturbed youth; and
Establishing rehabilitation centers for juvenile delinquents to provide both Emotional support and skill training.
