Smadhan ek din mein-Jan Suvidha Kendra

“Smadhan ek din mein-Jan Suvidha Kendra (One Day Governance-Public Facility Centre)” occupies an important place as it is people oriented, transparent, most authentic and serving the cause of common people. The objective of the project is to bring all Government services under a roof and make a system so simple that public can conveniently get services without much hassle. The system is made in such a way that there cannot be any involvement of Middle men and vested parties. It seeks to provide various certificates sought by the applicant on the same day itself.

Livelyhood Promotion

About 68.8% of our population resides in the rural areas of our country. The majority of this rural population depends on agriculture and allied activities for its livelihoods source. Therefore, working in the areas of livelihoods is given utmost importance. The organization focuses on providing equal access to skill training and other sources for the poor and the marginalized to provide them with adequate livelihoods opportunities from the human rights perspective.

The organization believes that the producers, collectors and cultivators should reap the major benefits of their hard work and hence works towards initiating local level community based institutions such as farmers’ clubs, cooperatives, SHGs, etc. in order to enable them to undertake the processing and marketing of their produce. These initiatives also work in achieving local level accountability and long term sustainability of the process.

There are innumerable schemes of the Government related to livelihoods. However, these schemes do not reach the actual target groups. Thus, the organization works closely with the Government systems for the convergence of these schemes for improving the livelihoods of the people.

Gram Vikas Yatra

Gram Vikas Yatra was a very ambitious project of our president Mr Vinod Khandelwal. The incredible team of CSA GROUPwith many volunteers have visited more than 30 villages of Tehsil- Khichipur, district- Rajgarh MP. We have discussed problems associated with each village in their common forum with Administrative authorities like Sachiv, Sarpanch etc, even in some places we got assisted by MLA, CEO of zila parishad, SDM and collector. We have encourages them to make living better by doing Shramdan with our team and guided them to maintain village neat & clean, we did help them in keeping sanitation and green environment.

We shared to save electricity and helped them to switch in CFL in place of traditional Bulbs, we guided them to use Biogas as renewable source of clean energy for cooking and lighting the houses or in place of electricity. We have also encourages them to increase cash crops, plantation, availability of better seeds and using of non chemical fertilizers. Apart from this we have also made them aware of importance for schooling for everyone, incentivized children who got full attendance in a year, with parent by gifting books and study materials.

Sanitory Napkin Project

It has been estimated that Rajgarh ranks as one of the worst district in the Madhya Pradesh for sanitation. UNICEF India (2008) estimates that only 31 per cent of India’s population use improved sanitation and only 21 per cent use improved sanitation facilities in rural India. Another study found that awareness on basic health and feminine hygiene is very low, with 75 per cent rural women lacking adequate knowledge on menstrual hygiene and care. It has been reported that 91% rural women use unsterilized clothes since they are cheaper and 68 per cent said they cannot afford to buy sanitary napkins. One of the major issues is the affordability of the quality sanitary care. In the interior of India, poor rural women generally use ash, sand, mud and unsterilized cloth and 70 per cent dry them in shade, increasing chances of infections.

Continuing the same issue, most Gynecologists reported that sanitary napkins can act as a preventive measure against reproductive tract infection, while 64 per cent noted that it can act as a precautionary measure to reduce the risk of cervical cancer. In addition, Research also shows Reproductive Tract Infection was 70 per cent more common among those with unhygienic sanitary practices. Out of the 4.55 Lakhs menstruating women in District Rajgarh, only 8 per cent use sanitary napkins. Challenges to menstrual hygiene promotion in Rajgarh

A ‘culture of silence’ resulting from the long-standing taboo attached to menstruation and menstrual hygiene practices.

  • The stigma attached to menstruation has contributed to the dearth of knowledge amongst females in both urban and rural communities as to the correct menstrual hygiene practices.
  • Economic, social and political disempowerment of women.
  • The patriarchal structure of Indian society
  • The limited solid waste management systems and the lack of mechanisms for disposal of sanitary napkins in rural areas

The project envisages a top-down model for delivery of content, services, information and knowledge, that can allow rural women to adopt hygienic menstrual practices. CSA GROUPas the resource/nodal NGO can develop a network of grass root SHGs on District Rajgarh basis for information dissemination. Our SHG model will be employed to enable women volunteers to spread awareness in the rural milieu

PRERNA- Vocational and Life Skills Training

CSA GROUPhas launched many initiatives which help in enhancing young people’s access to market driven vocational skills. Through these initiatives, CSA GROUPaims to achieve decent employment for youth living in poor urban and rural areas and ensure that all new entrants to the workforce, including young girls, are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed for high productivity and high-quality jobs.

“Prerna” project is one such initiative, where youth from disadvantaged and marginalized rural and urban communities are being offered market demand driven ‘Job Oriented Vocational Training’. The project is targeted at underprivileged girls and boys in the age group of 18 to 25 years in various resettlement areas of MP. The target locations for project are located at the peripheries of rural M P. The training courses include Customer Relations and Sales (CRS); Retail; Hospitality; Debt Recovery Agent (DRA); and IT-Enabled Services. The course delivery is made more comprehensive with the inclusion of English speaking, basic computer education, personality development, and life skills. The project has been implemented through a training agency working on youth employment. CSA GROUPis responsible for the overall management, coordination, monitoring, and implementation of the project. Today the project has established credibility in the community. It has simultaneously contributed in generating awareness among the stakeholders and in community about the importance of the economic empowerment of girls. As result, now more girls are enrolling in Prerna. There is also an increased demand from the employers for Prerna candidates.
