 Message from Patron...

       I am very happy to learn that CEVA is celebrating Silver jubilee and bringing
out its 25th Annual Report of all its activities. On this memorable occasion, I am
pleased to place on record, my sincere appreciation and gratitude for all the
wonderful activities of CEVA for the sake of the poor and the marginalised. I
also take this opportunity to wish CEVA the very best in all its activities for the
empowerment of the poor.
        CEVA has a dedicated and loyal body of Directors, Officers
and other workers which enable CEVA to spearhead and coordinate various
services in a professional and disciplined manner for the development of the
downtrodden and marginalized people all over India. A glance through the annual
report will reveal the level of their achievement and the amount of appreciation
they receive from their beneficiaries. By implementing 30 major projects and 5
minor projects in 11 states of India CEVA has done a commendable job during
the financial year 2011-2012.
        The committed leadership of CEVA in coordinating various activities and
the combined effort to “evolve and promote a family-centered approach in the
development of the poor” deserve special attention and praise. As the Patron of
CEVA, my sincere hope is that you will be able to materialize your vision in
developing “a society which provides enabling environment in which integral            5
development of the poor takes place.” May the dedicated services of all the
members of CEVA family bring hope as well as true development in the lives of
the poor people.
        I wish CEVA great success in all its activities especially in this silver
jubilee year. May God bless CEVA abundantly in all its endeavours through the
intercession of Blessed Cyriac Elias Chavara, the great source of inspiration
behind CEVA.
                                   With prayers,
                                 Yours in our Lord,

                                       Rev.Fr. Jose Panthaplamthottiyil CMI

                       Message from Moderator…


           The year 2011-2012 is a milestone in the narration of Cyriac Elias
    Voluntary Associations’ commendable social services for the reason that it
    commemorates the Silver jubilee. The annual report of 2011-2012 of CEVA
    is unfolding the manifold activities of the reporting year with due
    acknowledgement to the Divine Providence that has directed all the
    development activities.
           CEVA has taken significant leap in the upliftment of the poor and
    marginalized people of India. I am immensely proud of what CEVA has
    achieved, and extremely excited about the bright future that we are headed
    into. We hope that in reading the following pages you will share in both. The
    accomplishments that you will read in the pages of this report are only a few
    highlights from CEVA in the past year.
           CEVA draws satisfaction from the successes by touching the individual
    lives and communities. Today CEVA has grown into an organization of
    professional excellence, especially in project coordination and monitoring.
    However we need to humbly acknowledge that the need of the hour is a
6   continuous search for improvement and innovation.
           The report mirrors the accomplishments of the reporting period and
    merits our appreciation. I extend my sincere gratitude to our donors and
    project implementing partners for their support and regular participation
    through dialogues, on issues pertaining to development. They have consistently
    contributed and partnered with CEVA for sharpening the poverty reduction
    strategies and the repositioning of CEVA. In this Silver jubilee year I
    congratulate everyone who is associated with CEVA especially the Secretary
    and staff for the marvelous work that they are doing. May CEVA continue
    its forward march with its developmental interventions.

“Let there be no day in your life in
which you did no good to others”


       CEVA has been continuously striving for the past 25 years in translating
these inspirational words of Blessed Kuriakose Elias Chavara and it
continues.
       2011 – 2012 has been a year of great significance for CEVA as it
marks the completion of 25 years of committed service to humanity.
       When I joined CEVA some years back, I did not expect that someday
I would be asked to occupy the position as the President of this great
organization. I have been comfortably inducted into the role and into the
CEVA Family, reflecting the mission of CEVA to evolve and promote a
family centered approach in its development pursuit.
       The year 2011-2012 has witnessed series of need based activities
as part of jubilee year celebration strengthening the already existing
programmes and entering into new spheres of partnership to achieve our
vision of enabling environment for integral development.
       The year has been made special with the cooperation from my team
                                                                                  7
members, partners and Karl Kubel Foundation. I remember each one of
them in gratitude.
       CEVA can be proud of a distinguished legacy and look forward for
a challenging future.

                        Message from Regional Secretary


           “I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was
    service. I acted and behold, service was joy.” Rabindranath Tagore.
           I consider that it is a great privilege to be part of the stream called
    ‘CEVA’ which is continuously flowing and has made new vistas in the field
    of service to the millions of people for the last 25 years. CEVA was always
    about service and the beauty is that in the process it has found joy for itself
    and for others. CEVA along with its partners, benefactors and beneficiaries
    is trying to make this world more dignified for the present and future
    generations who are somehow find themselves in the margins.
           CEVA believes that social work is different from all other kinds of
    work. It is not simply about better management, efficiency, timeline,
    monitoring, reporting, achieving the target etc. CEVA was founded on a
    spiritual vision that amplifies human relationships as a part of one family. I
    believe that it is this spiritual vision which is beyond any religious or cultural
    boundaries that inspires the nations and people to come together to share
    with each other. Then service becomes a joy. Service is a service only
8   when we are able to place ourselves as part of the process. Without personal
    integrity and involvement we can never enjoy our work.
            Along with efficiency we also must cultivate compassion, the
    ability to bring heart to our work for the people.
           I like to thank all members of CEVA team especially the staff at
    CEVA NRO and ERO for their hard work. I appreciate all our partners
    who are taking themselves to the people they serve.

     Secretary’s Reflections


       I am indeed glad and honored to bring forth the 25th Annual Report of CEVA and
be part of this milestone in the history of Cyriac Elias Voluntary Association. Deriving
inspiration from Blessed Chavara, CEVA has been relentlessly serving the needy
regardless of cast, creed and religion. CEVA has been successful in creating an enabling
environment for the integral development of the poor and the marginalized in this year
as well.
       During the course of the past year we came across two important aspects that
created waves in the development scenario. Firstly, the global financial crisis led to a
substantial decrease in the flow of foreign funds to India. Secondly, we witnessed the
emergence of new players in the field of social development like Government with new
schemes, Corporates, NRIs and Faith-Based Organizations. This met with a two-edged
response which gave a notion of insecurity feeling among NGOs that it may cause the
shrinkage of NGO space. On the other side there was an urge to incorporate the new
players into the system and conjointly work up development initiatives with the available
resources within the country. It was identified that a professional approach with efficacy
and effectiveness would enrich the NGO sector with greater involvement of the masses
and encouraging volunteerism. CEVA had been successful in identifying the challenges,
meeting them, rising up to the occasion and accepting the newer while holding on to the
traditions and values that made us what we are.                                              9
       I am deeply indebted to Very Rev. Fr. Jose Panthaplamthottiyil the Prior General
of CMI and our Patron for his incessant commitment to CEVA and its management.
The Board Members of CEVA are an amazing collective of people deeply committed,
rewarding us with their time and energy to support and assist the organization. I thank
them for their time and involvement. I salute Karl Kübel Stiftung(KKS) Germany, for
their amazing feat of being on the road with us almost all the time in our journey. My
heartfelt thanks to all partners, friends and well wishers of CEVA for their involvement
and engagement with us.
       I extend my sincere gratitude to CEVA team at all three offices, for their
commitment and relentless services that made us scale up the heights by holding together
and striving for excellence in serving the needy and making our vision a reality.
       Looking forward to greater heights and newer horizons for creating an enabling
environment for the integral development of the poor.

                           CEVA – An Overview
         Cyriac Elias Voluntary Association (CEVA) was registered as Charitable
     Society on 27th January 1987 and started to carry out its social action for
     the sustainable development of the human kind. CEVA is a humanitarian,
     non political, non religious, non -profiteering and voluntary social service
     society. Enlightened by humanitarian values and social ethics, we work
     for the upliftment of the marginalized and the deprived, irrespective of caste,
     creed and religion.
         In CEVA’s view ,development depends on a strong society which
     includes government and communities working in cooperation. CEVA aims
     at building the capacity of civil society organizations who are either made
     of the poor themselves, or who work with poor people to include them in
                                                                                        Our presence
