BHEL takes the responsibility of reforming juvenile male children
With an aim to improve the lives of underprivileged people and communities maharatna public sector undertaking (PSU) Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited (BHEL) has ventured into a CSR support initiative that is focused at reforming juvenile male children.

Under this Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative children who have a history of substance abuse and those with various other psychological & behavioral disorders will be targeted.

BHEL has tied up with the Society for Promotion of Youth & Masses (SPYM), to support setting up of a self-sustainable state-of-the-art kitchen including its accessories.

The kitchen will be holistically utilized for training in food production, processing and distribution for the juvenile delinquent inmates at its De-addiction and Rehabilitation Centre in Delhi named ‘SAHYOG’. The centre has more than 50 bed facility for adolescent males under the age of 18 years.

A team of experts capable of handling juvenile behavioral dysfunctions will conduct the training. The training curriculum will include cooking of various North Indian, South Indian and Chinese vegetarian & non-vegetarian cuisines.

Those who are found responding to the training and are on road to recovery will be provided with an opportunity to intern or act as an apprentice at the Sahyog for production, marketing and distribution of food in its vicinity.

There will be opportunity for the trainees to get an ITI certificate designating them as Assistant Cooks after undergoing an examination. The certificate will help them in getting absorbed by various food production and marketing chains such as hotels, restaurants, etc.

The trainees will also be helped by the SPYM in setting their own fast-food centres with knowledge of preparing common dishes as well as organizing a delivery system of food in the surrounding areas.

Estimates say that around 9000 students live in the near by areas of Sahyog, who either opt to live as paying guests or look for appropriate locations where home delivery meals/tiffins are easily available.

Sahyog is targeting 10% of these students with a very competitive and comfortable rate of Rs.25/- for a sumptuous meal. On every meal the centre has calculated a profit of Rs. 5 which will help it to sustain the food cost as well as the cost incurred by them on training the juveniles.

Those delinquents who will show the signs of not falling back to the remotest possibility of re-entering the arena of drugs and other criminal activities or are not vulnerable to relapse to their original dysfunctional state, they will be rehabilitated back to their homes for a happy reunion with their families and for further pursuance of a dignified and fulfilling life for themselves.

So far SPYM has a success rate of 75% in this endeavor.
