  16. 16. Under the community health program, Sukarya is implementing a projectin the most backward and the deprived district of Haryana, Mewat.Mewat is the land of the Meos, who have their genesis in the Meo tribals,who are basically an agriculture based society. The area has a distinctethnic and socio-cultural tract. Historically, the region has had anextremely turbulent history and has been subjected to repeated invasions.The destruction and devastation over the centuries has resulted inbackwardness and gross underdevelopment both in the area and itspeople. Sukarya initiated its work in Mewat District from June 2008. Ourproject objectives focus on male partnership and participation inimproving the overall health status of rural communities. The thrust ofthe project focuses on health education and awareness. Male healthgroups will play a key role and will provide platform for health educationto identify health issues and problems and to take actions at the groundlevel for seeking health products and services.
  17. 17. Major activities till now• A baseline survey has been conducted by an external organization to understand the health status prevailing in the area in the month of June, July and August.• The project reaches to a population of 29000 in 13 villages of Tauro Block of Mewat District.• 8 male health groups have been formed and are active.• 2336 females and 2228 males have visited the camps and have been benefited• Diagnostic test like X-ray, ECG , blood and urine test has been conducted for 400 people
  18. 18. Better health throughCommunity based health centre
  19. 19. A number of programs have been initiated by policy makers in India since itsindependence to bring about positive change in the health of the citizens of India. A hugeamount of money has been spent to provide quality health services to the rural populationof the country. However, there is still a large proportion of rural population that isdeprived of it. For instance Bandhwari, a village with a population of 5000, which falls onthe Gurgaon-Faridabad highway, 18 kms from Gurgaon, has residents who were entirelydependent on quacks for primary health services. There was no clinic or dispensary in thevillage. Even the transport facilities in the village are very poor. Taking these facts intoconsideration, Sukarya started a small but important joint venture in the village with thesupport of CAF and Incentive Destinations.The goal of the Project was to increase awareness and improve in the overall health of thegram panchayat of Bandhwari. In order to achieve the goal in a perfect manner, we workedwith a well planned strategy. A health centre was established for the people of Bandhwari,with an M.B.B.S doctor and a medical dispenser, active five days in a week. To strengthencommunity participation, four community health workers were selected from the villageitself. These health workers played a vital role in bringing needy people to the health centreand in conducting the follow-up of these patients. To address the issues related towomen’s health, visits by a female specialist doctor were scheduled twice in a month.Further, IEC material is also being developed to generate awareness related to health andsanitation.
  20. 20. Achievements till now• More than 3500 household from the village benefited from the services of the Health Centre like health check ups, provision of quality and effective medicines, counseling by the doctor and the medicine in charge and time to time follow up by the project staff.• 3000 patients have received the treatment during the last two years including 995 women and 746 children. Patients are benefited by the mobile health clinic services.• More than 70% of the patients paid the user friendly fees of Rs.10 in the health centre.• Counseling and one to one interaction has been conducted with at least 50% of the patients visiting the clinic. One to one counseling on health has lead to improvement in the levels of personnel hygiene amongst people in the community. cont……..
  21. 21. • Increase in the awareness level regarding good health, nutrition, safe drinking water, sanitation, immunization and pregnancy care.• Increased heath seeking behavior in the community. Patients started visiting the health centre and the government dispensaries for primary health care services.• The women from the community were particularly satisfied with the visit of 2 lady doctors twice in a month in the health centre. This opportunity gave them ample scope to discuss their health problems freely with them.
  22. 22. Women in the rural areas of Haryana have very little control over their lives.They have no power to take part in the process of decision making in familymatters. Dependency on male members of the family can be seen in almostevery sphere of their lives. These facts have motivated Sukarya to do somethingfor rural women in the economic front, as economic self reliance has beenconsidered a crucial factor in realizing the goal of women empowerment. Apilot project on women empowerment by strengthening self help groups andvocational training was an ambitious step toward this direction. Three self helpgroups and one vocational training group were formed under this project.Apart from the saving, two self help groups are involved in income generationactivity of spice and cereal making. The prepared spices and cereals are sold byputting stalls at various corporate offices, housing societies and at the villagelevel. An adolescent group having 15 members underwent six months training of abeautician course under an experienced and a trained teacher. The BeautyParlor course was provided to the adolescent girls with an objective to providethem with the basic skills of a beautician.
  23. 23. Achievements• Bank linkages have been created for 3 self help groups. 2 self help groups have been given a revolving fund of Rs.11,000 each• 44 women directly and almost 220 people indirectly are getting monetary benefits.• 2 self help groups are running their spice centers successfully in Bandhwari and Waliawas villages.•There is an increase of Rs.500 in the monthly income of the 16 women involved in the spice and cereal making enterprise.• 15 Adolescent girls have successfully undergone the vocational training on Beauty Culture.• The women now have a platform where they can discuss their problem and find a solution. They get opportunities to recreate themselves as a group. cont………..
  24. 24. • There is a significant change in the confidence and mobility of the women who belong to self help group. Now, they have the capacity to go bank independently. The same women who had the hesitation to come out of the four walls, now with immense confidence go to the corporate offices and sell the spices.• There is an active participation from the community through this empowerment program. Firstly, the training venue has been a contribution to the project from the villagers. Secondly the SHG women and their family members were active participants in the program by directly involving in the program. The rest of the community was actively participating by their supporting the promotion of the products (spices) by regularly buying them and building more customers.• There is an increased awareness among the self help group members about health, nutrition, personal hygiene, numeric and calculation skills, self confidence and mobility.
