Respite Center in Thrissur

Apart from the medical and social support provided, Solace also focuses on family strengthening programmes as a means for parents to earn a living while at the same time caring for the child. A monthly strengthening program includes training for small scale activities such as tailoring, candle making, food processing etc. We aim for a sustainable living for these families and lend our spaces for parents to organize and carry out small scale enterprises. The training sessions are mostly carried out by talented members and volunteers of Solace and certain skills and techniques are developed which is put into use carrying out collective production processes. We also provide monetary support to set up small-scale businesses and thus earn a living to care for the children
