It is a unique campaign undertaken by NEST aiming at forming deep emotional attachment and positive relationships between parents and children. We want a generation that looks after their parents in old age. Students of Upper and Lower primary schools and their parents are the target group of this project. Scores of awareness programmes are conducted at various schools of Koyilandy Municipality. As part of it, families who need counseling are referred to the psychologist at NEST.
It is an annual get together of paraplegic patients and their families. An unprecedented program, planned and conducted exclusively by the Campus Initiative Volunteers, this annual two-day camp provides paraplegic patients and their families an opportunity to shed their emotions and feel very comfortable and happy. Launched in 2009, the camp accommodates patients from Kozhikode, Kannur and Malappuram districts. The presence of celebrities and eminent personalities adds attraction to the camp. The most valuable outcome of the program is that it creates a very good bondage among the volunteers and patients.
As part of this, NEST conducts “Chitrolsavam”- an annual Painting Competition for school children. The District Level mega event attracts hundreds of Children from K.G to Higher Secondary Standards. All the participants are awarded with certificates and winners get special trophies.
