Industrial Training Centre
Founded in 1989, ITC provides training in 10 trades for 500 teenagers. The institution
strives to build the confidence of the adolescents, giving them a sense of
self-reliance so that they can take up their trade in a wide range of work environments
or become self-employed. The centre has more than an 80% graduation
rate and is highly regarded by employers. After the tsunami disaster, it opened its
doors, free of charge, to hundreds of local youths who were invited by Amma to
train there, to help them rebuild their lives after the disaster.
