Little Sisters of Poor:
KZCT has been providing support services to Home for the Aged run by the Little Sisters of the Poor, is home to 135 elderly people.
Creating awareness about Government Educational Schemes:
The State and Central Governments undertake many social welfare schemes to help the poor and the marginalized. Unfortunately, not many people in villages and rural areas are even aware that such benefits exist and therefore these schemes fail to reach those in need.
KZCT aims to help the Government in its efforts to reach the underprivileged communities by running awareness campaigns.
Future focus areas of KZCT include active socio-economic development of the marginalized communities.
Women empowerment programs have been envisioned wherein women will be taught income generation skills, while widows and orphan girls will benefit from livelihood support programs and housing schemes. The poor and the needy will receive financial assistance to set up their own businesses.
