VYK Integrated Community Development Programme
The objective of Vishwa Yuvak Kendra's Integrated Community Development Programme (ICDP) is the social, economic and educational development of the Vivekananda Camp and Shankar Camp residents, situated at a distance of approximately two kilometres from VYK. The slum cluster, which has been "adopted" by VYK, has approximately 500 households, with most of dwellers being daily wage workers who have migrated to Delhi from Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal. Through its ICD programme, VYK is committed to eradicate all forms of injustice and discrimination against the downtrodden in general, and the women and children in particular. VYK's Integrated Community Development Programme (ICDP) implemented various educational, health, sanitation and awareness programs at Vivekananda Camp and Shankar Camp, which is reaching to maximum number of beneficiaries.
Sports, Yoga, Computer and Spoken English Programmes: VYK has become a model youth centre for educational and recreational services to youth. VYK's Sport Cultural and Educational Programme is a customized programme that uses Sport, cultural and educational activities as a platform to engage with children and adolescents from disadvantaged backgrounds and make them available various services under the project which would lead towards their cognitive development.
Cultural Progammes: Under the Cultural Programmes, VYK has planned a plethora of activities specifically targeted for the underprivileged youth. Various extra-curriculam activities have been developed which aimed at enhancing the multiple intelligence of the students.
VYK's Initiative for Differently Abled: Disability is still ignored at policy level. Even though a substantial percentage of the population is affected by disability, there is no mention of disability in the MDGs and SDGs. There is a need to have inclusive policy focusing the need of differently abled. With internship programme for differently abled, Vishwa Yuvak Kendra has initiated the steps towards inclusiveness
