KESS Associates - Empowerment Program

KESS brought together around 75 people from amongst its associates, to an empowering get-together held at the CMI Generalate at Kakkanad on Oct 2nd.  After a refreshing trip from various districts over the state, they all gathered together under the leadership of Rev. Fr. Dr. Joy Vattoly CMI [Exe. Director, KESS] to the heart whelming welcome by Rev. Fr. Dr. Paul Achandy CMI, (Prior General) and team. The highlight of the day was the motivating session by Mr. Kochouseph Chittilappilly [CEO, V-Guard Industries Ltd.], eminent industrialist and philanthropist. Mr. Chittilappilly has been a constant support and inspiration to KESS from providing the opportunity of income generation to poor women through the on-going stabilizer units in Thrissur and the continued support given for Cancer, HIV, and other chronically affected patients and their families. His talk on how he closely links social work with everything else in his life was indeed a great influence amongst the audience, reinforcing their drive and passion to continue serving the poor. Dr. Antony Gregory (President, CEVA) was also a special guest at this event. The associates also got the opportunity to closely interact with Mr. Chittilappilly during this occasion, which was a rare chance for many. KESS took this juncture to congratulate and honour each of the invited guests, especially the associates, for their continued goodwill and cooperation with KESS as well as their dedication to serve the poor and the needy. We especially thank Rev. Dr. Paul Achandy for the wonderful arrangements made at the Generalate with regard to the reception, program hosting, food and most importantly, the accommodation for the several members of the team who had reached from as far as Kozhikode and Palakkad, since the event ran late into the evening.
