Established in 2008, we have been able to impact the lives of around 1,80,000 people through various initiatives. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been able to reach out and support people. Over the years, we have been able to collaborate and work with people from different backgrounds of the society like students, teachers, parents, counsellors, trainers NGO’s, organisations (Public & Private ) and more in creating a positive impact and striving towards achieving our objectives. We at SA-MUDRA FOUNDATION, through psychosocial interventions and employability enhancement initiatives seek to aid the youth in dealing with factors like stress, depression, trauma and other psychological injuries; empower them in overcoming their psychological barriers; and achieve their true potential. We are also committed in creating awareness about suicide prevention and mental health.

SANTHWANA – SAMALOCHANA – Counselling and Guidance

SA-MUDRA YUVA HELPLINE (9880396331) is a Call Response Centre project, operated by trained counsellors, qualified youth advisors, and academic and career guides. It acts as a “first respondent” to multiple problems the younger generation faces, through free telephonic counselling, personal meeting, yoga, meditation, psycho-therapy and family participation. We receive at least 10 calls a day and a minimum of three walk-ins by people seeking first-hand crisis intervention on issues involving educational guidance, anxiety, career guidance, emotional crisis, addictions, parental pressure, sexuality issues, relationship conflicts, work place stress, family discord, premarital counselling, couple disturbances, depression and suicidal tendencies. We also offer telephonic counselling to students and parents facing SSLC Board Exams in association with Karnataka Examination Board.

MAULYA-KOUSHALYA – Life-skills Training and Livelihood Support

The 3-month in house training programme aims to equip youth with values for life, social skills, personality development and vocational skills training support like functional English language improvement training and computer operation thus enabling them to avail entry-level jobs like back office, customer relations and retail sales in sectors like FMCG and Telecom. With a focus on enhancing both personal and professional wellbeing, the programme provides confidence boosting training on self-image, attitudinal modification, communication skills, inter-personal relationship, failure and crisis management. The participants are mostly unemployed, under-employed or marginalized youth from rural or semi-urban economically backward communities. The programme helps mainstream them into the society as active, responsible and self reliant citizens.
