CRT TEAM VISIT TO SVYM

CRT team members visited a few projects run by Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement in H.D.Kote, Mysore District, Karnataka on March 29th and 30th.

As an organisation mainly involved in advocacy, research, training and lobbying activities; exposure field visits of this kind helps to infuse enthusiasm and energy in our work.


SVYM works mainly towards the upliftment of the tribal communities in that area and it was a very informative visit to learn about the different tribal groups and the work being done by SVYM.

We had a chance to visit their multi-speciality hospital, tribal school, 100% sanitation village, health center and a tribal community (haadi). On the way back to Bangalore, we also visited V-Lead (Vivekananda Institute of Leadership Development) in Mysore.


Each classroom's name in the tribal school has a local flavour to it

It was also a great opportunity to spend time together as a team, a rarity in the CRT world!
