  • CNM Reporter

  The Gift A Tradition project, which gives Onakkodi -traditional Kerala dresses gifted during Onam- to the inmates of differently abled and old age homes in the state, has begun. PA Mohammad Riyas, Tourism and Public Works Minister, inaugurated the state level project by giving Onakkodi to 126 senior inmates of UL Care Nayanar Sadanam at Eranjipalam, Kozhikode.

It will be implemented in all districts of Kerala in future. The Minister said that ‘Gift a Tradition’ is a model project that brings relief and happiness to various sections.

The ‘Gift a Tradition’ project was conceived to provide relief to handloom and handicraft workers during the Onam season, whose jobs and incomes have been cut off due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Launched by the Kovalam-based Kerala Arts and Crafts Village under the Department of Tourism, the project will provide an opportunity for customers including expatriates, to gift handloom garments and heritage handicrafts to loved ones.

The ceremony held today was the inauguration of the extended scheme to provide Onakodi to the residents of care homes across Kerala using the CSR fund of business organisations. Supreme Industries Ltd., Kochi, UL Technology Solutions, Kozhikode, PTC Group, Thiruvananthapuram, Parackal Granites, Ernakulam etc. have already participated in the project. Central public sector undertakings are also expected to participate soon. With that, the project will be further expanded.

The inaugural function began with the Minister paying homage at the memorial where the ashes of Mahatma Gandhi are preserved.  Dr.  M.  K.  Jayaraj, Director of ULCCS Foundation, Pradeep Nair, Deputy General Manager, Supreme Industries Ltd., Dr. Mili Moni, Managing Director, Eranhipalam Malabar Hospital, P.  Thankamani, Principal, UL Care Nayanar Sadanam, A.

UL Care Nayanar Sadanam, with the support of the Kozhikode District Administration, is working to skill and rehabilitate people over 18 years of age who are facing intellectual challenges. The Sadanam is run by the VR Nayanar Children’s Home Society and the ULCCS Foundation, a community service organization of the Uralungal Labour Contract Cooperative Society.
