Project Description

On a broader perspective, we tried to make the people empowered with information and motivate them to implement those informative inputs to lead a healthy life.

Specific Objectives

For this, we specifically undertook initiatives to

  • Generate awareness among people regarding HIV/ AIDS, RCH.
  • Make the Women (within the reproductive age) acquainted with the various strategies pertaining to child care.
  • Generate awareness among the people regarding the rudimentary aspects of Hygiene & Sanitation, which involves various physical and chemical pollutants that contaminate water bodies and strategies to be deployed for preventing and controlling this water pollution.
  • Make the people aware through door to door motivation regarding the significance regarding the significance of pulse polio consumption and motivate the parents to attend the pulse polio camps, to feed their children with pulse polio.
  • Engender consciousness for family planning and population control through various methods at our disposal including condom promotion.

Activities performed

Our modus operandi for the initiatives were:
Street Drama and awareness camps for generating awareness, group meeting and motivational camps and door to door movement and survey works for encouraging the people to take a positive step in life.
