SAKAV PROJECT

●In India, people in the age group of 15-29 years are at highest risk of contracting HIV infection. Amongst many reasons, lack of access to correct information about the risks of contracting HIV and means of protecting themselves from the infection make them vulnerable.

●Sakav project was jointly conceived by Kirloskar Oil Engines LTD and MCF to bridge this gap.

●”Sakav” in Konkani language means a small bridge – a small step that takes us to the other side of the hurdle.

●We conducted sessions in OCT 12 and Dec 12 at Tikaram Jagannath College,So far more than 300 students have benefited from the interactive sessions which were conducted.

●Now we are conducting similar programs in various urban and rural school and colleges.

No-addict: An initiative to tackle the menace of growing problem of drug addiction, we have initiated a school based drug abuse prevention program called “Unplugged” in collaboration with Rotary club of Mumbai Ghatkopar. Also we have started conducting training programs for doctors to equip them with knowledge and skills to handle drug abuse patients. In the first program in May 15, around 90 doctors underwent an extensive 16 hours training.
