This year, the aim of KEY is to support families of the farmers who had to take away their own lives due to the cruelty of nature in the Vidharbha region of Maharashtra. The stress, pain and grief that these families are going through, are unbearable, but they have stood strong together and have been fighting all odds. As a salute to these heroes whose hands feed the nation,  KEY with the support of the whole community are raising funds so as to ensure a better life for the farmers.

KEY conducts social events every year. ‘Water for Marathwada’ was one of the key events, last year wherein a water collection drive was conducted by the Youth in collaboration with the Western Region Social Service Forum (WRSSF). For this event, all the youth helped in collecting water under the leadership of the Youth Director, Fr. George Vattamattam for the drought-hit Marathwada region to which lakhs of litres of drinking water was supplied.

With each passing year,  KEY has been organising events aimed at developing the personality of the youth and transforming them into holistic individuals capable of serving the church and in turn, society. Cultural events like Talentia and Enthuzia are some of the prominent events which the KEY has been conducting for several years.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)The ruling emotion today will be passion. You will feel like chatting with your beloved the whole day. However, you will incur expenses and Ganesha advises you to remain balanced. But if you have decided already to go the whole hog, make fully sure you are in the right trappings. You will thereby experience love and warmth for one and all.
