Unfurled the tri-colour flag at Old age home on Republic day

A day which is celebrated with full of pride and patriotism in heart is the celebration of Republic day. It was a white winter morning on 26th January, all the inmates of Shakti Old age Home assembled under the tri colour flag to celebrate this auspicious day. Unfurling our tri colour national flag followed by the echo of national anthem “Jana gana Mana” by all our inmates brought a heartfelt tribute to the freedom fighters and our mother land "INDIA" and we bowed our head with a salute to our national flag. General Secretary of Shakti organization delivered his words on republic day after unfurling the national flag. The day was quite joyful and ended with a smile on the faces of all the inmates of Shakti organization.



Honorable Minister visited Old Age Home

India’s republic day marks the anniversary of the adoption of our Indian constitution. It’s a day to remember the completion of our country’s transition towards becoming an independent republic nation. Like every year’s celebration, this year also our Old age Home inmates celebrated the republic day with patriotic fervor. 
             It’s our pleasure to mention that our honorable health Minister Mr. Pratap Jena, esteemed district Collector Mrs. Guha Punam Tapas Kumar along with the senior government officials visited the Old age home. There was also a very good interaction between the inmates and government officials. The officials distributed blankets, fruits and snacks to the inmates with affection. At last honourable minister, district collector and all government officials conveyed their best wishes and gratitude to the inmates of Old age home with a hope of meeting them all again.

Beauty and Wellness: Carrier for self entrepreneur….


The socio-economically marginalised youth in Rayagada district face the challenges in terms of lack of employment and also lack of employable skills. Furthermore, life skills such as self-confidence and entrepreneurship are also the primary needs that the youth have in high demand. The marginalised youth living in poverty lack the financial resource to access the required employable skills, thereby further keeping them trapped in poverty.

In this backdrop, Shakti organisation has thought of building some youths as skilled youths who can become self reliant by having some entrepreneurial activity. 9 young girls of Bhakurguda, Nuapada, Kulijing villages of Rayagada block have received training on beautician course for a period of one month with support of SHAKTI organisation. After completion of training programme, they were provided with the required materials like moving chair, cosmetics, mirror,etc. to start a beauty parlour.

Through this training programme they have managed to break the shackles of socio-economic constraints and make successful, self-sufficient lives for themselves. These young girls have become role models in their communities and inspiring others.
