DEEPAM was established in 1999 to address some of the most relevant issues such as Leprosy and Empowerment of women in order to make them self-sufficient. With these in mind, we have come up with various skill development and mitigation programmes. As a trust, our operations have touched more than 300 villages and have covered a total of 30,000 beneficiaries so far. We continually seek to build a society where women can be financially independent and a place where people can live without being affected by Leprosy.
An integrated approach to build a equitable and empowered society
Alleviation of poverty with a focus of Skill Development, Entrepreneurship and Financial Inclusion
To work for women empowerment and alleviate poverty through skill development trainings and income generation programs for the holistic development of underprivileged people. To provide skill enhancement trainings to destitute women, widows and differently abled people. To provide healthcare facilities, health awareness programs, livelihood programs especially for leprosy patients for betterment in their life. To stimulate growth and awareness in education. To improve access of government loans and subsidies.
Skill development training centre is equipped with coir and coir mat making machinaries. SHG and JLG members can train themselves with the help of our trainer head in coir and mat making. If they need a specific skill set (for a group of people), our DEEPAM society will hire a trainer on the skill and will make our SHG members skilled on the specific skill set. Later, they can get Small scale loans through our banking partners for their start ups and they will repay the loans with the profit they make through their start up.
