Women Empowerment
Self Employment
Preservation of Culture

Within these domains, we pursue the following goals:

Increase the level of qualification and education by proving free educational and vocational training

Prevent common diseases (which are mainly due to poor hygiene standards and a lack of knowledge about diseases, a proper treatment and subsidized healthcare opportunities) by conducting awareness-raising and health education campaigns

Sustain the local environment and natural local resources by fostering reforestation through planting of fruit and timber trees; counteracting environmental pollution and deforestation through awareness-raising campaigns (to preserve both the environment and natural resources) as well as introduction of technologies using alternative energy resources (e.g. solar cooking technology)

Foster gender equality by empowering women to acquire qualification and employment as well as initiating a change of mindset through communication and creation of 'best case' examples

Reduce the unemployment rate by creating self-employment and job opportunities for both unemployed men and women

Preserve the local culture such as regional language, folk dances, and other regional characteristics by organizing cultural events

Our Healthcare Campaigns

In order to provide people with information about common diseases such as HIV and tuberculosis as well as their respective treatment and subsidized healthcare opportunities, we are running awareness-raising and prevention campaigns for diseases.

For our health education campaigns, the villages are randomly selected according to statistics provided by regional healthcare departments such as central and local DOTS clinics/ DTC (District Tuberculosis Control Almora) for Tuberculosis statistics

Up to now, we have covered 50 villages of the Hawalbag block with a total of around 10,000 people, one village comprising around 200 people.
All people from the respective villages are invited to attend the health education camp. The campaigns will be advertised by means of poster ads as well as an invitation sent to the respective heads of villages for distribution. The camps are mostly held in the village centre, where representatives from the respective regional health departments provide local people with knowledge about diseases and subsidized healthcare opportunities.

Our partners finance some of our healthcare campaigns.
Our public partner District Tuberculosis Control (DTC) Almora covers the project costs for our campaigns on Tuberculosis. We are currently working under scheme I & II.

Scheme I: Information Education and Communication (IEC). We start our campaigns by collecting the relevant data. In a second step, we spread awareness and educate people about Tuberculosis.
Scheme II: Affected patients receive a proper check up by DTC. As a DOTS provider, we deliver the needed medicine to their homes free of cost.
