Athijeevanam (Survival)Athijeevanam

The program's primary objective is to rehabilitate and rejuvenate the post-Covid Kerala society with the motto “Youth for Survival Mission.” Initially, we have to locate the extent of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the socio-economic and cultural spheres to revitalize the education, employment, health and cultural sectors in its light..



Back To Agriculture :


 “Back to Agriculture”   it is the need of the hour in igniting a sense of meaningful awareness among youth towards the good practices of agriculture and sustainable living. And also to spread the message that survival is only through agriculture.  Through this programme we wish to share the message that “food production is superior to food donation.”

ObjectivesBack to Agriculture

  • NSS Units should make an effort to utilise and convert barren land for productive purposes with the help of concerned government departments and self-help groups like “Kudumbashree.”   While engaging in farming activities, units should ensure organic and sustainable farming methods.

Core areas of Concern

  1. 1. Upland Paddy  cultivation
  2. 2. Fruit tree Garden
  3. 3. Vegetable garden
  4. 4. Herbal garden
  5. 6. Tuber crops cultivation
  6. 7. Birth star plant garden
  7. 6. Herbal garden


The organic farming and agriculture activities should be  extended to adopted villages and neighborhoods as an extension activity.



“KOODE” - with youKoode

KOODE - “with you” assures a platform for the adolescents in the institution and in the adopted village to express their problems frankly. The National Service Scheme volunteers will serve as a friend to share their concerns. With the help of recognized agencies, the volunteers try to solve their problems.  Privacy and transparency should be the two key factors of “Koode”.      The activity-oriented objectives include self-development and empowerment of adolescents through anti-narcotic awareness, Sex education, Adolescent rights Education etc.
