Mission ANNAPURNA –A Micro Finance initiative of People’s Forum Microfinance is a clear concept and poor friendly for their secured economical independence and sustainability. Introduce of this concept has save the life of people from the clutches of village loaners, commonly called as “Sahukars”. Poor need access to credit. Absence of formal employment makes them 'non-bankable'. This forces them to borrow from local moneylenders at exorbitant interest rates. Many innovative institutional mechanisms have been developed across the world to enhance credit to poor even in the absence of formal mortgage. The present paper discusses conceptual framework of a microfinance institution in India. The successes and failures of various microfinance institutions around the world have been evaluated and lessons learnt have been incorporated in a model microfinance institutional mechanism for India.

  10. 10. Xavier Institute of Management and Entrepreneurship, Bangalore Rural Marketing Activities : The organisation has done research and market survey in 10 different districts. It has found out potential areas and skills of the small scale enterprises in those areas. The entrepreneurs are provided training on rural marketing and we have liaison their business with local banks. We have also promoted petty businessmen to start new trade by providing them small loans as capital. Cluster development for Rural Artisans Jewels out of the stones: Orissa was popularly named as “UTKAL”, meant the state of adroit art and sculpture. Effervescent culture and heritage of the state speaks the story of magic fingers written by our craftsmen of those days. But now they are all turned myth not because efficient artisans are no more born but because we are no more careful towards the ancient articrafts and profession. They try to empower the rural artisans by making the active entrepreneur cum primary stakeholders, to organize artisans in selected clusters to enable them to take up economic activity for sustainable development through community participation, to promote individual artisans for small scale entrepreneurship in groups. Eye Care People’s Forum conducted cataract operation camp every year and last year 81 no of older people were benefited through cataract surgery funded by DBCS Khurda. Reproductive Child Health and Community Health Care People’s Forum is working extensively for community health with special intervention on women and children. The organisation is focusing the lactating mother and children as well as the expecting mothers of Khurda district and provides them support service for healthy motherhood. In rural pocket the economically down people are less aware about health and hygiene of the women. Thus the mother-to-be and newly-mothers become more vulnerable towards infection, diseases and weakness. People’s Forum has taken an initiation in 5 G.P.s of Khurda district including 100 women and 254 children below 15 years. AIDS awareness In Belpara block of Bolangir district People’s Forum has started working in NACO phase-II project since 2003-2004, through target intervention programme. The organization has carried on this most challenging task of identifying female sex workers at Kantabanjhi block and counseled them regarding the disease, its causes and symptoms, prevention, safe sex and precautions to overcome the disease. This programme was Mission ASHRA Page 10
  11. 11. Xavier Institute of Management and Entrepreneurship, Bangalore also supported by State AIDS Control Society to carry out mobile STD camps for identification, diagnosis and treatment of HIV & AIDS at free costs. Malaria Bolangir, Kalahandi and Nuapara districts are malaria prone areas due to its contaminated water body, improper sanitation, unhygienic environment, swampy areas and untidy atmosphere around it. Through it is the prime responsibility of the local residents to keep the area clean and adopt preventive measures against malaria, but their insensitivity and inaccessibility makes them more vulnerable from mosquito bite and the dreadful fever. Thus People’s Forum has initiated a malaria awareness and Deogaon block of Bolangir district. Several people get free treatment, counselling and preventive measures for using mosquito net, safe drinking water and clean environment. Mission ASHRA Page 11

  13. 13. Xavier Institute of Management and Entrepreneurship, Bangalore MY LEARNINGS In the first week at People’s Forum, I was exposed to the present scenario of the under- privileged section of our society. I had never been exposed to such an environment before. Through SUPA, I got an opportunity to work with an NGO like People’s Forum and understand their functioning. My work time was from 9a.m to 6p.m. I started my work by observing the organisation structure, understanding its activities, getting inputs about the organisation from different staff members and studying the behavioural patterns of the organisation. After two days, I found my area of interest and what I could possibly contribute towards the organisation in a positive way. Out of the many activities at People’s Forum, I decided to participate in the activities at Mission ASHRA, learn the various mental illness diseases, reasons, methods to deal with it, patient’s case and how to deal with them. Along with that how to take care of their children, who also are taken care by Mission ASHRA. Mission ASHRA Page 13

According to WHO report, about 20-30 millions of Indians are in the need of some form of Mental Health Care. It is a startling fact that in the State Of Orissa alone, more than 3 lakh people suffer from myriad mental disorders, and incoherency. Mentally ill women, particularly women who are treated as permanent burden to the respective family members, we at Mission ASHRA work for them those are not treated as human beings. OBJECTIVES 1. To redirect the abandoned mentally ill women into a productive member of the society. 2. To rejuvenate their life with economic sustainability through vocational training and income generation activities. WHO ARE THEY?? People’s Forum, a Development Organization, besides its mandate to see a rich, equable, just and healthy society, has attached paramount concern for some grey areas in the society which least attended. The People’s Forum has decided to give wings to the dreams of vegetative and voiceless women who are treated as garbage in the society. Thus the People’s Forum has been motivated to initiate one of the largest and unique rehabilitation centres in the outskirts of Bhubaneswar, Orissa set in a rural ambience, with its 15 years extensive experience in rural development and humanitarian service started a Mission for the rehabilitation and resettlement of the distressed and trafficked mentally ill women called “Mission ASHRA”. To provide possible support to the destitute mentally ill women, People’s Forum has started Mission ASHRA on 18th July 2003 at Jaanla, khurda at the out-skirts of the capital city, Bhubaneswar. The activities undertaken by the institution are multifaceted and inter related to each other. Mission ASHRA Page 14

She was diagnosed having negative symptoms of Schizophrenia and very violent towa everybody coming before her. With psychiatric enia towards treatment, care and support of Mission ASHRA she started recovering and surprisingly regained back her lost memory. ASHRA started digging out her past life. She was brought up by her aunt till 12 years. But unfortunately her aunt did not afford her schooling So she worked in a construction site. ly schooling. There she developed an emotional as well as physical intimacy with a Muslim man and become a young mother. This incident altered her entire life into a mess. She suffered various health problems since her pregnancy. Unable to care the toddler she handed her over to a Christian priest of a church. The misfortune was still to spell over her spoiled life as she was again deceived by a person who took her he outside the village at the bait of a false job.

  26. 26. Xavier Institute of Management and Entrepreneurship, Bangalore RECOMMENDATION I found out that there infrastructure facility is not that good. So I would definitely recommend them that the funds they get, they should diversified a part of that for improving infrastructure purpose. Once the infrastructure is improved, more women can be accommodated All the patients stay together at one place, but the problem is some patients are very violent and harm others. So the patients who are violent in nature must be given separate rooms and separate treatment. When I was working in Mission ASHRA,I found that a woman names Abhagini ran away . so I will suggest them to have proper security, so that no woman can go out because they are mentally ill and they are not yet completely ready to face this cruel world. They are here some for some stress and problem they faced in their past, so I don’t want them to suffer that again. The children who stay there don’t have proper environment for growth aspect. They stay with those women who may impact their life in a long run, so I suggested them to have a separate housing facility for those children which would b close to school and hospital . Mission ASHRA has tie up with Orissa police. So, whenever they found any such case of mental illness of women who doesn’t have family support, they immediately contact. I suggested them to have such contacts with the police department of other states also. In India we have only two such centers who deal with mental illness patients, so they should spread out there wings to help more women. They have helped a lot of women, but they don’t have much facility for men who suffer from such problems. They should have outdoor patients check up facility atleast twice a week, so that they can help men equally Mission ASHRA Page 26
