The purpose is 2 fold: 1. Connect SA businesses to Indian businesses and social enterprises 2. Provide cross cultural and social exposure to our disadvantaged youth, so they can put their own problems into perspective and gain self-esteem and confidence through being able to assist others less privileged than themselves.

Team CAI put up a culinary workshop on the making of the world famous Hyderabadi Kacchi gosht ki Biryani , Mirchi ka salan and Double ka Meetha. Chef Sudhakar Rao, Director/Principal himself took the initiative to demonstrate and explain the concept of this slow cooking method. Apart from the workshop the team was taken on a field trip to witness the training operations at India’s topmost culinary institute and the one featuring amongst the top ten culinary schools of the world – Brand CAI. A 5course classical Hyderabadi meal followed making the Australians overwhelmed with joy. And in the words of Spero Chapley, founder and Chairman of YOUTHINC – “We have been overwhelmed with your visionary results this far and believe the academy creates an enormous contribution to both your country and your people. We have been truly inspired.”
