In March 2017, beside organizing a awareness camp on various Prime Minister schemes at Babina and celebrating International Women’s Day at village Khajaraha Khurd and awakening the young girls and women of the village to came forward and get ready for a new dawn, we worked for NABARD under a new Project d-FLAPs (Digital Financial Literacy Awareness Programs) for which we organized 25 d-FLAPs in Kolaras block of Shivpuri district of M.P. with the active participation of bankers of the region where we taught the villagers the advantages as well as usage of cash less transactions, Aadhar linkages, Mobile linkages, Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Beema Yojana, etc. Villagers took active participation in the camps and took benefits from these camps.
Apart from these, we focused on young girls to help them making capable of taking important decisions of their lives like right age of marriage, right age to bear motherhood, their role in both the families, raising their voices against harassment, domestic violence, etc. through a program called ‘Meri Sehat Mera Nirnay’ in association with National Health Mission, Jhansi Unit. This program was conducted in 10 Government Girls Inter Colleges of Jhansi district covering around 2000 college girls.
February 2017 was the month of election in U.P., keeping in mind the same we did various Voters’ Awareness Camps and rallies at villages Toonka, Bhadra and Khajaraha Khurd of Babina and at various crossings, seminars and coaching centres in Jhansi. The purpose was only to make people especially women aware of their most important right (Right to Vote) as well as duty as one can make complaints only when he fulfills his duties. We tried to convince them that everyone should give vote and play his/her role in the formation of efficient, unbiased and corruption free government.
In January 2017, we gave candle making training to the villagers of village Bhadra and celebrated our Republic Day on 26th January with the kids of Khajaraha Khurd where they showed their respect towards our Democracy as well as their talents before us. On the occasion of National Girl Child Day on 24th January we organized 2 Girl Safety & Know Your Rights Camps at 2 colleges of Jhansi namely St. Umar Inter College and Sooraj Prasad Inter Collage in association with National Health Mission/ Divisional Project Manager Unit, SIFPSA, Jhansi and participated in a seminar under the chairmanship of Commissioner of Jhansi on Gender Sensitization.
Meanwhile in M.P. we started working with NABARD (National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development) through the formation of 18 Farmers’ Clubs in 18 villages of Pichhore block of Shivpuri district of M.P. where we gave them various base level orientations and made them start working as a club.
