I have known this Academy for long through its various activities for cultivating peace. Thanks to the brave support given by the committed group of women, which is the core strength of Cultural Academy for Peace. Your training programmes sensitized and have certainly conscientized not only the victims but all the duty holders and stakeholders. I congratulate you wholeheartedly for the wonderful works you have been doing for the least, the lost and the last.

The Cultural Academy for Peace, as the name reflects, stands for peace and non-violence, is the institution which takes great care for the legitimate Rights of Women and Children, whether it be of the interstate or intrastate. The services rendered by Cultural Academy for Peace are undoubtedly admirable, particularly for those women and children who are the victims of violence and abuse.
The team of members headed by Smt. Beena Sebastian who is the Chairperson of CAP, does a remarkable service in various fields for the wellbeing of the downtrodden, marginalized and oppressed women especially in the field of women empowerment, their safety and protection.

Cultural Academy for Peace has meaningfully and intelligently strived for benefitting women and children, collectively and individually. It has been a great pleasure for me to be associated with the well-organized activities of this organization. The efforts they have taken for the education of girl children are very much praiseworthy and I am personally glad enough for getting a chance to collaborate in this venture.

Here they are able to regain their mental and physical health and all the more their self-respect.
