Sampurn Sahyog Sansthan (SSS) empowers communities through initiatives focusing on health, education, social, and economic aspects. They receive strong support from the Government for implementing initiatives such as National Rural Health Mission, Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, and National Awareness Campaigns.
Their activities include:
Maternal & Child Health: SSS supports The National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) which is an initiative undertaken by the Government to address the health needs of under-served rural areas. The goal of this health project is to improve nutrition and health status of women and children. SSS has brought about major changes in the behaviour of the community to improve maternal and neo-natal health and to reduce new born mortality through capacity building, mass media campaigns, and advocacy by implementing ‘Sure Start Project’ supported by Path India. They fund 40 Gram Panchayats for addressing malnutrition. They approach local health care providers, support them to improve their counselling skills, encourage families to practice healthy behaviour, and seek out quality maternal and neonatal care.
Back to School: SSS has started this programme under Government’s Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan for marginalized children. The main theme of the programme is to create awareness about the child’s right to education and to increase girls’ enrolment in schools. They approach government agencies and other relevant Departments to bring about positive changes and build capacities of all partners involved in the process, ranging from teachers, NGOs and the girl children themselves.
Women Empowerment: SSS focuses on empowering women through formation of Self-Help Groups (SHGs), education, health, and income generating activities thereby making them independent and self-reliant.
Skill Development for Youth: SSS offers vocational/computer training programmes for underprivileged youth to increase their productivity and provide employment opportunities.
Livelihood Awareness: This programme encourages formation of SHGs, promotes increased agricultural incomes, organic farming, medicinal plantations, and acquaints them about various government schemes.
Environment Awareness: SSS is a part of the National Environment Awareness Campaign, where it sensitizes people about environmental protection and adverse effects of global warming and importance of forests for sustainable livelihood.
