Sponsor children summer camp: Vimukti Pothnal
“Camp is where I learned about myself; facing fears, trying new things, pushing my boundaries, and accepting myself.” -says Sinchana, Pothnal
Vimukti organized a sponsored children summer camp from 5th to 6th April,2024 in its premises. The summer camp has been successful in giving a new and wonderful experience for these children. This was evident by the enthusiasm and eagerness with which the children were taking part in various activities organized in the camp. Children were very active and busy in different activities like drawing, painting group games. It was evident that such camps do play an important role in shaping children’s view of the outside world. More importantly, the camps conducted by the Vimukti have been able to develop harmonious relations between children from different castes and religions. Children participated in various games and creative activities. Thus, this camp has been able to give a platform to the under privileged children to showcase their unique talent.60 children benefited from this camp. The overwhelming acknowledgement through their reviews and feedback was a motivating factor for the entire vimukti team.

Vimukti Pothnal Celebrated Easter with migrant families- “the great gift of Easter is HOPE”:
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”- Mahatma Gandhi Vimukti Pothnal organized the "joy of giving" activity in an Endeavour to make Easter celebration special and reached out to the 150 migrate families at pothnal on 30th of March 2024, Saturday. Easter festival makes us join with our brethren in doing little something extra for someone. It is joy, for giving and sharing, for laughter, for coming together with less privileged families and children. Easter is an important time for us to not only reflect on God’s love, but to share His love with those around us through our concrete actions. Vimukti always believes in saying “great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day,” with this motto vimukti celebrates Easter along with migrant poor families who have traveled from different states in search of jobs and staying in the temporary tents. On this occasion we distributed stationery items, like notebooks, pens, tooth brush, tooth paste, washing soaps, clothes for children etc., encouraging, and motivating parents to send their little children to continue their education. On this occasion children and parents were distributed sweets and nearly 275 stakeholders benefited from this program.

Vimukti Initiatives to combat trafficking of Women and Children 448 Stakeholders benefited from this program: Vimukti Pothnal
VCT Pothnal organized mass awareness programs every month respectively. Lack of awareness on human trafficking is the biggest barrier to prevent human trafficking, most of those victimised are either women or minors (consisted of individuals under 18 years of age who are recruited, transported transferred, harboured or received for the purposes of exploitation,). Kidnappers most commonly force women into commercial sex and indentured servitude. Bride trafficking has also been a consistent commodity due to skewed sex ratios in certain areas. Keeping this thought in mind VIMUKTI has been creating mass awareness in the schools, AWCs, public places, and in the residential area, so that children and women are saved from these evil practices. Nearly 448 school children and families have benefited from this program.


International Women’s Day- “Invest in women; Accelerate progress -2024” Vimukti Pothnal
“You are a unique creation of GOD; without you I cannot exist” thank you for giving birth to me and always encouraging and inspiring me.
The Vimukti Charitable Trust® Celebrated the International Women’s Day on the 7th March 2024. The International Women’s Day, 2024 4 the Motto: “Invest in women: Accelerate progress” highlights the importance of gender equality, women’s rights and girls’ empowerment and their rights to healthier lives. Mr. Jaysheel Vimukti coordinator gave a key address saying that ‘women live amidst the four walls called a house and a family. In this 21st century, today women need to grow socially, literally, and politically to make known the capacity of her to the inside and outside world. For a better tomorrow one must work today in instilling the seeds of the equality of gender.’ Dr. Prarthana, BAMS, PGDAC skin hair specialist Sindhnoor, advised the women saying equality should begin firstly in our own homes by eliminating the inequality of the gender to build a better society. Women must be very keen on this issue and can be overcome by giving them the social and mental support and apt education will help the women to face tomorrow. Mr. Hampayanayka Manvi MLA in his inaugural speech motivated the women to stand firm in facing their problems. No doubt, the violence is increasing against women because she is considered a weakling. But remember that a woman should not forget that if she wills, she has the greatest strength to protect herself. Therefore, she must strive after giving the girl child education and equality in her own home first. This motivating factor helps her to become a better citizen tomorrow. Mrs. Lakshmi, the Grama Panchayath President, Pothnal, Sr. Saritha Anugrha convent pothnal, Mrs. Girja coordinator and all the Vimukti Staff participated and made this International Women's Day a memorable one. Nearly 125 women representatives were present and witness the program.
