| ADISHAKTI & COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT|
# Adishakti encourages local attendance at performances and cultural events as a means of exposing a wide section of urban, rural and class-based groups to its work and to each other.
# It also makes its space and expertise available to children from the village school to train in dance, martial arts and music.
| || # Adishakti employs nine local people from the village on a regular basis in support staff roles and many more (up to twenty) during special activities like construction.|
# This practice creates employment opportunities for the local community and helps to transfer valuable skills to local people. It also helps local staff to develop their careers and businesses. For example:
# Adishakti's carpenter is in high demand and has started his own taxi service with retained earnings.
| # Masons, having acquired skills from Kerala masons during construction at Adishakti, have found almost continuous work on other building sites. |
# Adishakti encourages career development for wage earners to move into its management team. One such worker is now the Assistant Manager.
