Village Level Program for Self Help Group
We came up with a Village Level Program for SHGs on 22 October 2021 in Hungund and Badami Taluk in Bagalkot District. The main objective of this programme was to bring the beneficiaries above the poverty line by providing income generating assets through bank credit and government subsidy. The Self-Help Groups (SHPs) are the major component of this scheme. To inculcate the savings and banking habits among members. To secure them from financial, technical and moral strengths. To enable availing loans for productive purposes. To gain economic prosperity through loan/credit. To gain from collective wisdom in organising and managing their own finance and distributing the benefits among themselves. To sensitize women of the target area for the need of SHG and its relevance in their empowerment. To create group feelings among women. Yamuna Pai, DDM NABARD Bagalkot was present during this activity and made sure that the rural women were benefited with the most relevant skills and resources.
On 2nd and 3rd October 2021, we organised ‘Purpose of Caregiver Movement’ - We have planned to organise caregivers' movement in Belgaum by organising caregivers with Bird and Carers World Wide Organisation in Bagalkot district. Our aim was to raise awareness of caregivers in the society, identify caregiver services and provide essential services to caregivers. This initiative provides support to caregivers in the care of chronically disabled persons, identifies their rights to have a better quality of life and devises plans for development and provision of services for caregivers in government policy terms to assist them in their physical, psychological, emotional and financial well-being. Any person of any age who provides care, nourishment and support for those with severe disabilities, occupational or chronic illnesses qualifies for it. Our objectives were to improve the socioeconomic status of poor people without discrimination & benefit of any caste and creed and establish Self He
Food Kit Distribution
We launched an endeavour in 15 villages in the Bagalkot area on July 31st and August 1st, 2021, to raise awareness about the second wave of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our team held awareness camps for 92 SHGs and 920 women SHG members at community halls in different villages for 23 days, with the help of Mr. Rangangouda Dandannavar, Vice President of BIRDS Organization. The training camp lasted 5 hours and was divided into two groups, each with 40 participants. SHG women members, ASHA activists, Sanjeevini programme staff, and village leaders all worked together to make the programme a successful one. It is important to make under-priviledged communities aware about the pandemic & its effects as well as the precautions that need to be taken to stay protected as, they don’t have access to all this information. We made sure that we protected them amidst these deadly circumstances of the lockdown.
It is the small change that makes the biggest impact.
