NGO Profile :
SNEHA (Society for Nutrition, Education and Health Action) works at the community level to empower women and slum communities as catalysts for change with existing public systems to create sustainable improvements in urban health.

Main activities in FY15:

  • Maternal and New born Health Program (MNH): The program strives to strengthen primary care to enable women to access birthing places in time and building a cadre of community health volunteers to reach out to women in inaccessible areas and provide them with health facilities. SNEHA has impacted over 50 out of 56 health posts across 9 wards of Mumbai and 12 hospitals are a part of the referral network for maternity services (leading government hospitals in Mumbai). It has increased its reach to 2,175 new pregnant women and initiated a mobile health van service in partnership with Siemens Ltd to reach out to those living in informal settlements.
  • Prevention of Violence against Women and Children (PVWC): The program is designed to offer crisis intervention and counselling services to women and children who are survivors of violence at home by providing the victims with access to counselling, mental health services, police, legal assistance, health care and community mobilization. Thus far, over 7,50,000 women have used the above resources. SNEHA’s  pilot “Little Sister” project maps, identifies and quantifies domestic violence cases by using Android smartphones.
  • Child Health and Nutrition Program (CHN): Under this program children are given medical evaluations, diagnosis and a home-based care package as well as nutrition counselling. SNEHA has screened 10,529 children and 1,454 pregnant women so far.
  • Sexual and Reproductive Health: This program is designed to empower adolescent girls and boys with correct information on physical health issues, sexual & reproductive health and child sex abuse to enable them to make informed decisions about their health. Female facilitators from the same communities as adolescents are trained to deliver a comprehensive health and life skills education program.

SNEHA was chosen as one of 1,400 global NGOs and one out of three from India, to be part of the portfolio of Epic Foundation, a New York-based philanthropic organisation.
