Our Programs

Advancing People's Agenda


E Community

The  project is based on the findings of the Community Needs Assessment in 7 Slums of Pithampur Industrial Area.

Health- The project is on a community health approach and promotion of health seeking behavior among adults as well as children.

Remedial Education- The remedial education component of the program works on a two-way model. The first model is to provide supplementary education to children attending schools The second component is that of identifying dropout children from within the village and to align them with the process of education through life skill-based education.

Women Empowerment: The program proposes over a period of 5 years to form Self Help Groups, their training and capacity building on group dynamics and book keeping, followed by handholding support in terms of facilitating regular meetings, bank account opening and credit support for micro-entrepreneurial initiatives.
Most of our efforts pertaining to this program involve studying new approaches and developing innovative ways to implement them. We evaluate our success in this field by gathering qualitative and quantitative data, and using that information to measure shifts and changes from our baseline measurements.


Aarogyam is intended to improve access to and quality of community health services and information; to enable the active engagement of beneficiaries in seeking health care at the community level throughout the project area; and to contribute to the establishment of well-functioning referral.

Major Components of the Program:

  • Preventive Health Care: Preventive health care also known as prophylaxis are the measures we take for preventing any disease. Preventive Healthcare includes the use of any medical service or precautions that fight against the potential health crisis.

  • Curative Health Care: Curative care refers to treatment and therapies provided to a patient with the main intent of fully resolving an illness and the goal of bringing the patient—ideally—to their status of health before the illness presented itself.

  • Awareness: Awareness plays a key role in our approach to improving access to healthcare. We seek to empower communities, and patients with appropriate tools, information and skills so that they can make high-quality, informed decisions on prevention, diagnosis, treatment, care, and support

  • Referral Liaison : An effective referral system ensures an in depth relationship between all levels of the health system and helps to make sure people receive the simplest possible care closest to home. It also assists in making cost-effective use of hospitals and first health care services.

The NINEISMINE campaign grew out of Nelson Mandela’s call to ordinary citizens to keep governments accountable to fulfilling the MDGs. Children in India took upon themselves the task to ensurethe fulfillment of Goals 2 and 3 and 4 – all of which refer to children. Later the campaign grew to realize the exclusion issue of children particularly in the context on India. They, therefore,incorporated a strong focus on the “last child”. However, keeping alive the need to ensure that allsections of India (the children of privileged middle-class and excluded communities) all interact together to find common solutions. The NINEISMINE campaign believes that “Child rights abusesanywhere are a concern for children everywhere”.
